Ben and Brooke, Tim an I went on a road trip to DC together. We spent 2 nights there. It was brief, but we went there last year and had so much fun, so we decided to do the same this year by staying in the same hotel, eating at the same restaurants...etc. We did go see different monuments and museums which we didn't cover last year. Also I tried to take pictures of different things that I didn't take last time.
So here you are, our nation's capital right after Christmas.

The Union Station

The Postal Museum

The Capital building

The Air and Space Museum

The Natural Science Museum

Washington Monument

Jefferson Memorial

Lincoln Memorial

The White House

The Supreme Court

The Library of Congress



I went to find Tim after his work to ride the train back home together. Brooke happened to be in downtown too, so we hung out a little bit in Prudential Center and did a little shopping. The Christmas spirit is everywhere. The city is beautifully decorated. I love Christmas!



Cookie Face, yup, that's what I call my new snowman. I made him last night while the wind was calm and the temperature was fairly warm during this time of the year. I used two cookies for his face, and that's where the name came from. Happy holidays everyone!



Funny picture of the day–––a person who does not like getting his pictures taken–––alone.


Waking Up With the First Snow

Last night we had snow for the first time this year. The wind was fierce, blowing the snowfalls horizontally across the sky. I sat by the window watching as if seeing it for the first time. This is my third winter in the snow, and yet I am still ever so fascinated by its beauty.

This morning, I was woken up by the snow plowers. I realized that the sun is just starting to rise up. As I peek through the blinds, I could see the whole world in front of me covered in a white blanket. How beautiful, I thought, as I inhale a deep breath. God has His way of showing me that He can wipe away all the transgressions of this world. All things are covered in His grace.

Our car, making a grumpy face at me

Can you see the moon still?

From dark to light, the magic of a sunrise ^^
