Bokehs and Sprinkles

Occasionally, I will have my camera sitting on the dining room table. It’s a dangerous spot, so I don’t leave it there often. But, tonight, I was sitting there, with Gus next to me eating a snack, my camera in between us. He loves to touch the buttons and feel the different textures. He pressed down on the shutter and click! He cheered. So, I let him do it again and again, moving the camera a bit to try to capture him.

We worked a bit on potty training tonight. We’re in no rush, but when he’s interested, he can go sit for awhile. I sit with him and we have great conversation. Over and over I heard “Mama, I funny. I funny, mama.”

After the kids went to bed, I needed to get out of the house. Aaron has been working some odd hours, but our lovely babysitter came to my rescue. And off I went.

It was even colder today. We got a dusting of snow last night and it was around 20 degrees when I went out. I wanted to walk from one end of downtown to the other, but I only made it so far before my hands were too cold to even really press the shutter. I don’t usually drink hot beverages, but I needed something.

Hello, lovely little coffee shop. With a barista who believes that whipped cream and sprinkles can’t be beat.

I don’t like hot chocolate. But this… this was really good.

Oh, and the reason why I came downtown… to see all the Christmas lights!
