Christmas Treats

'Tis the first time that I have ever made pecan pies, and Damien made the chocolate cherry mice on his own.

Christmas Eve and Snowing

We woke this morning to snowfall. I knew that I had an awful lot to do this morning, but I couldn't get my mind off of photographing the snowfall. DJ said that he would take me, so we went to photograph nature and other things. We went to the roadside park off of 84 south of Abilene. I showed DJ the Cedar Gap cemetery, which I did not photograph, and the Cedar Gap Bird Sanctuary. Then DJ took me to photograph Lake Kirby before we headed home. I had a wonderful time.

Different Leaf, Same Tree

Photograph was taken next to the old West Texas Utilities power plant.
Look here; this is me
Standing behind you
Always waiting
We branch from the same tree
But I'm not like you

I'm always patient
Pausing for my time
Always waiting
We come from the same seed
But I am distinct

Watch me wait for you
Holding for your life
Always waiting
We're born from the same earth
But I'm different.

I'm me.

2011 Christmas Choir Concert

The Cooper Singing Men were in concert at the First Baptist Church in Abilene, Texas. The church presented a great backdrop for the individual choirs singing this year. Dylan did wonderful, and I am so very proud of him.
