Week 50 good to WOW {SOOC}

GoodtoWow2

Welcome back everyone! Thanks again for joining us.  The next two weeks of themes/prompts are at the bottom of my blog.   Thank you all for joining us this year – it has been an amazing experience for me!   I loved watching so many of you grow your skill set and push yourselves to try new things each week!  

This week our theme/prompt is Holiday Traditions

Our family has a few that we do every year.  One is our favorite meal – The Bethlehem Dinner (our children look forward to it all year long!) We eat on the floor – all the foods that would have been available during that time – pita, hummus, grapes, figs, olive oil, roasted chicken and vegetables.  We focus on the story from Luke and allow the children to pretend we are literally at the last supper with our Savior.   We talk about things that might have been discussed and how Jesus was willing to give His life for us.   We usually do this on Christmas Eve or a few days before, depending on if we are traveling to be with family.   Two of our sons celebrate birthdays this month so we incorporate them into this tradition as well. 

The second is going to see Christmas light displays all together in our big bus.

This display was set to music and it was AWESOME!  Open-mouthed smile  We arrived just before the line was probably an hour long to get into the mile long show.   We finished in about a half hour and I was able to capture some neat shots along the way!     Chell, do you see what I see?

It wouldn’t be a good light show without some beautiful bokeh…
