Medway’s annual Holiday Parade followed by an outstanding fireworks display over Choate Park.  This year there was a layer of ice on the pond which made the reflections pretty cool to see.

Tree Tradition
November 29, 2013

Each year, the day after Thanksgiving, we cut down our tree. Since Danny was born we have gone to Vandervalk Farm in Mendon to pick it out. This year Dan did the cutting, with some help from Mom, it was fun to just stand and watch, though I did have to get down on the ground for the photo. Usually the ground is muddy and wet, but of course since I was not the one with the saw it was dry.

Anna ‘s homecoming dance was tonight, I got invited my camera got invited to where the girls were meeting before heading to the High School. I am sure this will not be the last of my pre-dance photo sessions over the next few years. I wish I had a camera that made her look younger though.

They say if you love something, put it a box and send it away, If you pay Nikon’s ransom, and it comes back in bubble wrap, it is meant to be.

Celebrated “Pre-Thanksgiving” with my wife’s extended family today, tons of people, tons of food and a ton of desserts. It was a great day, with tables that extended past the front door and over 4 rooms. If this was practice for the real day, I think I am ready, or maybe in a coma, let’s go with both.

I drove up to Swampscott today to meet a couple at the Yacht Club on the beach for engagement photos.  A quick session on the water, on what really was a gorgeous day considering it is the last week in November. It got a little brisk when we walked out on the long dock, but the view of the city was great. Congratulations Annie and Kevin, I know it will be warmer next October when you tie the knot.

A very talented friend from work handmade this Menurkey, (menorah + turkey) to celebrate her Thanksgivukkah next week. -Spell check is going crazy with these words- As I am sure you are aware Thanksgiving and Hanukkah combo, that is happening this year has never happened since Thanksgiving was established as a holiday in 1863. Did you know it will not occur again until the year 79,811… so , well that is really insane when you think about it. 79,811. Good thing she left space on the back where she put the date. I think she can fit 79,811 right underneath 2013, she has time to work on it.

A box of books showed up today, book 4 of the dailypic. I was very excited when the Fedex truck pulled up… I thought it was my camera returning home, it wasn’t. So in disgust I tossed the box inside the door and went back to work. After the disappointment of the camera passed, I realized it was pretty cool the books showed up. Four years ago I could not wait to rip into that first box, holding the collection in a hard covered book, no matter if I made it myself or not was pretty cool.  Today, I tossed the box to the side. When I finally sat with it and looked through it that same feeling came back, it is really awesome to see all the dailypics in one place. I did something different this year and put the photos together by type or themes, people, animals, food, toys, Legos… etc. I had not done that before, it was interesting to see the similar shots I had taken months apart. There are a few shots that are rip offs of other photos, I think it is OK to steal from yourself. If you want to see the preview link you can click here and choose from any of the books.  They are for sale $40 each and will be at the upcoming gallery event December 13-15 in Medway – more info on that this weekend.
