day 335: christmas tree and lens

I saw this idea a couple months ago (I can't remember where), and knew when we put our tree up I wanted to try it. I'm not sure it's exactly what I was going for, but the Tiny Tornado is wanting some extra mom time tonight, so I'm off to have a tea party.

Photobucket


Have a great evening! :-)

Edit: I posted this picture last week, but I wanted to join in the fun at the Holiday Bokeh Party over at Darcy's.
