This is my Dad with Eva. I was trying to get some shots so that the lights would bokeh with a star design. I tried the PhotoJojo DIY – Create your own Bokeh project but didn’t do so well. I also wanted to get a photo of my Dad for the December Challenge. I took this without the flash so I could get a warm tone from the lights of the tree, I like how the lights back lit him as well.

Today it snowed then down came freezing rain and then rain. There was a bunch of it and the roads never did get quite cleared all day. It was a good day to be inside watching the Patriots beat the Jets.

The morning started with a trip to church where the folks on the altar nearly outnumbered the people in the pews. After that a little project around the house and some work on the tree. Then it was downstairs to watch some football have lunch and take a few photos. Here are some photos from the day.

Allison and Eva in front of my parent’s tree, should have moved that envelope, other than that I love the photo.

Eva is very very active and alert these days. Taking this image without a flash so I could get a nice warmth from the tree made it very difficult to capture Eva because she moves so much. I just like how this looks like she is in two places at once.

Baby Eva in front of the tree, my attempt to create my own Bokeh using the PhotoJojo DIY – Create your own Bokeh. They are supposed to be stars not little pac-men.

The little shits tore up this Santa costume while it was being stored in our back room. Now they find it a nice thing to lay on.

Both Eva and daddy were tired after their late night last night. A good little nap after the game was just the right thing to do.

  1. The photo with your father is just awesome. Have it framed. :-)

  2. Drew says:

    Thank you very much. I think it came out pretty nice too.

  3. Karen says:

    Your tree is absolutely beautiful! You should put it on my post showing your Christmas tree. Email me if you wont the post link.

    Great pictures of you and your family. If you need a nanny let me know! I took really good naps too.

  4. Karen says:

    I forgot to ask what species your tree is. I love how the branches are so full.

  5. Drew says:

    I’ll find out the species from my parents. It is their tree. I’m not sure the species of our tree but the poor thing is losing needles pretty fast. I’ll keep you in mind as a nanny. Could you send me the post link. Thanks.

  6. Joana says:

    Ah, Eva looks so adorable, I especially like the close up of her in front of the tree. Your dog Taylor also looks precious, coming to the baby monitor like that to see what was wrong with Eva. *melts*

    Now that you mention it, those bokeh things do look kinda like Pacman XD

    Drew, you’ve been tagged

  7. Andrea says:

    The bokah thing sounds cool…

  8. Drew says:

    I see that I have been tagged twice for this. I will now have to do the meme. Yikes.

    thanks for the compliments on the photos of Eva. I wish the close up was more in focus but lighting is not my strong point. I have to try bokeh again.

  9. Drew says:

    I think that you would make some great ones. We should try it sometime.

    […] little Eva is the best Christmas present Drew and Allison could have ever wished for. Oh, and this link takes you to a picture Drew’s father holding little Eva. In the background is another […]
