Christmas Sunrise in Stripes of Candy Colors Before the Beast Emerges

The view from my kitchen window about 7am on Christmas morning was so pretty I took this photo and thought to share it with you.  I don't know what's in the atmosphere to make these pink stripes, there's probably a scientific explanation, but I'd rather just appreciate God's artistry for now.



Christmas was the first day in a while that the sun made an appearance and stayed with us all day.  There was frost on the car windows and a teeny bit of snow on the grass, but crisp, clear, and cold in the 30's F.  How did Christmas find you?  Hope your Christmas weather was beautiful and lots of happy memories were made throughout the day.

Ahh, those cherished quiet moments as above show the calm before the beast awakes.  Not wanting to show off her present, I managed to get one photo which was not a blur of her in perpetual action:

We had beautiful weather for Christmas, too! No snow or even frost and just a tad too warm to make it really feel like the end of December.

Lucy looks very fetching (no pun intended) in her new bandana!

Thank you all for your generous comments.
Deb, you make me laugh!
I told Lucy about all of your compliments, however only the leftovers made an impression. She doesn't appreciate you all as I do, unless of course you had a snack or a leash in your hands.
Stacy, we had iced up car doors today, strong winds, and snow flurries- could you keep that up in Canada my friend? I know that it's winter, but I was enjoying the snow-lessness of winter so far, anyway.

Thanks for visiting!

What a beautiful Christmas morning, lucky you! We were lucky enough to have a sunny day, but no snow (my daughter was so disappointed).

I hope you and your family have a Happy New Year!

Hi Valerie, Thanks on the new look, I keep changing it, but this one may stay for awhile. I think you'll have lots of snow. Happy New Year!
