Week 51, Our Favorites...

"The Best way to spread Christmas Cheer, is singing loud for all to hear" Holiday Cheer is contagious this time of year. A candy cane, or a song, or a steaming cup of hot cocoa by a twinkling Christmas tree and I'm on pins and needles anticipating the excitement of Christmas morning. You guys did a great job photographing your holiday cheer. I loved so many things and then I turned a bright shade of green with envy. My remodel is so close, paint touch ups & curtains to hang in my beautiful new kitchen and I'll be holiday ready. It's my turn to host Christmas dinner and my entire family has been banned from visiting since we've started our remodel in August. They are going to be so surprised, and hungry. Christmas eve is my favorite day of the year. Christmas magic is everywhere. Kids are the most behaved ever. Everything smells like sugar cookies or Pumpin spice. And at any moment I could burst into song. (You've been warned)
I love the photos this week. Our top ten is in no particular order. If you enjoy the photography, click on the photography links below it to visit the artists work. If you like it, send them some love. Photography can be a challenge, your kinds words can make all the difference to an artist who had a tough time this week. So go ahead, and click click click!
