On the Fifth Day of Christmas

  Yes, my last 12 Days of Christmas post was very brief. We were about to leave to the city to see some GORGEOUS Christmas light displays, and I quickly uploaded the song part and header picture, and typed those few word to direct you to the random Christmas thing of the day... the recipe. :) Thankfully, I had already gotten that other one posted. 

  So anyhow, you may have guessed what the Christmas-y thing of today will be: pictures of the lovely lights I photographed! =D

  A lit tree outside. I purposely switched to manual focus and took with out-of-focus for the beautiful bokeh! This was the perfect place to take these kinds of pictures. 

   We went with some friends of ours, and I'm very glad we got to do it! First we went shopping at Costco (and got some yummy samples, of course ;D), then we went to a restaurant to eat supper.

   After that we headed to see the lights. There were so many people, we had a hard time finding a parking spot, but we did.

It was inside and outside. We wandered around the inside first.

HUGE Christmas tree! :) 

     The outside may have been my favorite. At first when we went out, I didn't even put my jacket back on, even though it was cold. It felt good. :) But it was warming up (it's so nice today, I went outside without a coat wearing flip-flops!).
   Anyhow, it was so lovely outside! There were horse-drawn carriages bringing people around, and just sitting there, and lovely light- filled trees and bushes. :) Doesn't that picture above just look magical? :) I have a picture that I took outside that I just LOVE on my photography site. I'm posting much more pictures on there, so go HERE to see them!  I hope you enjoy all the magical Christmas-ness! :)
