Hey, Santa Visited Early This Year?

My youngest son, J, dressed up for the school concert. He was disappointed that it was a "Winter" concert, not a "Christmas" concert and that there would be no mention of Santa. He had to dress up as an alien from the planet, Pluto. Well it's supposed to be really cold on Pluto and so we dressed him up all in white and guess what, he was the closest thing resembling anything to do with Christmas in the whole little Santa Claus. He loved it!

Merry Christmas everyone! If you are celebrating another holiday, I wish you wonderful celebrations. And if you don't celebrate at this time of year, then I wish you a happy, healthy December!

IPhone Photography

I don't often use my iPhone for photography. If I do, it's the Hipstamatic app. However, on Sunday morning, rising very early (hockey practice), I looked out the window and the sun had created a line that almost looked like fire on the horizon. I really didn't feel like going downstairs to grab my Canon, so I used my iPhone to capture the moment and I love the way it turned out.
