Picture Perfect Weekly #34 {Last one of the Year}

December 22, 2012

I love to share photos and I love Instagram. I was one happy little blogger when Instagram became available on Android devices. I jumped, no leaped, on that particular social media bandwagon and have developed a new love affair/addiction with it. Because of this love affair I have decided to start my very own weekly link up called… Picture Perfect Weekly!!!
I would love it if you would join me and share the treasures you captured with Instagram/phone camera/any other camera during the past week. I see a lot of fantastic, cute, funny and happy moments every day.

Share just one or many of your pictures and add a small description.

Just paste the badge into your post or sidebar and follow me… quick and simple. You can find me on Facebook, Twitter and of course, Instagram!

I look forward to seeing your treasured moments!!!

It’s hard to imagine that I’ve been doing my Picture Perfect Weekly hop for 34 weeks now and we are at years end. This will be the last one for this year. I’m going to take next week off and then come back in the New Year. I’m going to start fresh again and start counting from week one. It’ll be the Picture Perfect Weekly 2013 edition… 52 weeks of picture perfect moments!!! I hope, you’ll join me!!!

Here are a few moments from my week. It’s been a bit busy around here. The boy had is first ever midterms last week and his schedule was all wacko so I had to do quite a few double runs to school and back. And of course I’m in full prep mode for Christmas. I still have a few things to get and all the presents still need wrapping! Anyone want to help? 🙂 I always tell myself that next year I’ll start shopping earlier and get things done quicker and then time just gets away from me.

12-22 gingerbread boyWe didn’t make gingerbread houses this year but I found a kit for gingerbread men. The boy was the first one to decorate one. He also proceeded to eat his right away!!!

12-22 cookie decorator

Little one was my number one decorator yesterday. We had to make a second batch of Christmas cookies so we could leave some for Santa Christmas Eve!

12-22 more Christmas cookies

 I made a lot of candy cane cookies. For some reason I really like them this year!

12-22 big Christmas tree

This tree is in front of the Marriot hotel here in Boca. It’s absolutely beautiful and so big. See Little One in front of it?

12-22 reflections

I named this one Reflections. The lake was like glass one morning this past week and I loved the way the trees were a mirror imagine. I chose a black and white filter because it just seemed to fit with the barren trees.
