Picture This

Mr. M. bought me a new camera for Christmas.
I was amazed at how much better it is than my old one.
It takes pictures of my home as I really see it.
I love my new camera.

My dinning room on Christmas morning.

This is the naughty corner where children go to think.

This wreath hangs all year round by the kitchen window.

Paper whites in the kitchen window.
Please tell why one is growing and one is not.  They were planted at the same time.

The kitchen doors to the dinning room.
I love how much light these rooms get.

A favorite quote from the movie Pride and Prejudice on a chalkboard in the hallway.

Favorites around the house.

The front door entrance.

Arbor House Lane.

The house as it looks each morning, with all the trees brightly lit.
Mr. M. has been told by fellow neighbors that our house lit up in the morning makes them smile on the way to and from work.

As you can see we did finally get some snow.
The kids can't wait to get outside and play.

Thanks for stopping by to see random photos with my new camera.
How about you?
Playing with any new Christmas toys?

  19. Hello Alaina. I've just now found you at Feathered Nest Friday. Your beautiful wreath with the bow really caught my attention. It was just that simple and I knew I wanted to follow you. Your home is beautiful and I love the fact that folks on their way to work love to look at it. I too turn the lights on in early morning for that same reason. I hope you will stop by my Cottage for a visit. You would be most welcome..Happy New Year..Judy
