December Photo Hunt

This months challenge was a little confusing. It was orginally supposed to be a 10 item challenge but the challenge creator decided to post last Decembers items (for her own personal reasons). This was a list of 20 items of course, so I wasn't sure if we were supposed to complete all of them or just choose 10 from the list. I decided that I would just complete as many as I could and instead of freaking out and trying to capture those 3-4 photos that I always have incomplete at the end of the month, I would just relax and leave them out. 

1.Holiday Lights
Our Christmas lights hanging from the balcony

3.Holiday Treats
A yummy treat we got at a Christmas market. It was a chocolate covered apple mouse

5.Gift Wrapped Package

6.Window Display

7.Winter/Holiday Icon
Ava and Santa! No lap pics, this was just about as close as she was willing to get to him

At one Christmas market we went to there were these cute little reindeer made out of trees

Making cookies for Santa

10.Something that says Noel
Some of our Christmas decorations. Can you spot the word "Noel"?

11.Something Precious
We have been potty training (very successfully I might add), and Ava insisted that I move her potty in front of the tree so she could admire it while she went! I thought that was pretty precious

12.Something Peaceful

13.Something Hot

14.Something Cold
Snow, of course

15.Something Red
I am making invitations for Ava's birthday party!
