BIBPC the Sixth, Category 6 – Epiphany!

I’m here last minute with my Category 6 BIBPC entry!! Go Owls!

The category was “epiphany”, so I had been waiting all week to get an epiphany about what I could photograph, but it never really came. So instead, I photographed myself getting an epiphany…

Anyways, I hope you enjoy the photo!

BIBPC the Sixth – Category 3: Tradition

Hello!

I am here with another entry for BIBPC! This contest has been so much fun so far!

Go Owls!

Category 3 is “tradition.” I wasn’t sure at first what to photograph, because I couldn’t really think of any unique traditions my family/I do for Christmas, but I was able to think of one, and got this photo with the help of some gifts my mom wrapped for friends tonight… and also the cat πŸ˜‰ .

This picture represents a personal tradition I have. It’s simple, yet enjoyable and exciting to me. Every Christmas morning, I like to get up before the sun rises, when the house is dark, and go out to where the tree is. In my family, we typically don’t put the presents under the tree until Christmas Eve night, so when I go out on Christmas morning, I can turn on the tree lights in the dark and sit and enjoy how pretty everything looks, and enjoy the excitement of the morning!

Christmas traditions are so fun, though we must always remember the greatest reason behind all of the trees and lights and presents — Jesus: the greatest gift of all!

 

What are some of your Christmas traditions?

BIBPC the Sixth – Category 2: candle, candy cane, card, carols, celebrate, chestnuts, chill

Hello! Here is my entry for Category 2 of BIBPC!

This category is…

candle, candy cane, card, carols, celebrate, chestnuts, chill!

 

I am on Team Owl! I used all seven words in my photo:

The candles are in the window; theΒ candy canes are to the left of the sheet music; two cards are to the right of the sheet music; the sheet music is a Christmas carol; the cards, candy canes, carol, and festive blanket celebrate the holiday; the sheet music is for “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” (also called “The Christmas Song”); and the blanket on the bench is there to keep off the chill!

Go Owls! It was a lot of fun thinking up this photo! πŸ™‚

 

Have a blessed day!

It was fun setting up this cozy scene… and then drinking the chai tea afterward! πŸ˜‰

 

Here’s a bonus picture from my photoshoot of this setup…

Callie decided my tea smelled interesting and photo-bombed the shot to look at it. πŸ˜‰ Can you see her?

 

Now for the camera update… I got a new camera!! A big thanks to my brother for passing his Canon EOS Rebel T3i down to me! I am really enjoying learning to use it and the manual controls!

 

What do you do to get cozy in the wintertime? πŸ§£β˜•

 

Have a blessed day!

Until then, I have some pictures from the day we left. On our way, my grandpa stopped the car so I could get some pictures of the lovely view outside. I grabbed Caroline from the car and took a few pictures there.

Enjoy!
