Stille Nacht

I haven't particpatied in Friday Favorites in quite some time, but there's no time like the present. :) Here's to the little things in life!
Charlie the Christmas Tree Branch. He's still going strong. Sorta.

Church Caroling


Chocolate from my boss, he's the bomb

$8 New fleece sweater at Target = my fav.

Raw dough. Yum.

Receiving a Christmas card picture with photos I took.

My family's somewhat-historically-accurate nativity. Currently only the animals are in the barn, you can see Mary and Joseph on their way, the shepherds are to the right in the fields with their sheep, and the wise men are about two years away in the living room.

Yeah... we're homeschooled
My new lens!!
50mm 1.4, a little Christmas gift to myself. I bought it cheap used and LOVE it. It came with a macro adapter, which is how I took the photo of the eyelashes earlier in the week and the first & fourth photo in this post. It gets super close. I love it. Until tomorrow... Happy Christmas Adam!
