Spotlight – Holiday Traditions

Loved spending my morning looking through everyone’s FMTSO – Holiday Traditions.  This week’s focus ended up being family traditions, centered around the love found in the family, the enjoyment of each other and the food eaten on these holiday occasions.  Thank you all for sharing a few of your private moments. 

I am spotlighting those photos about family -

Peggy’s beautiful photo with bows in her hair – would love to see all the bows at the end of the night.

  1. Well thank you Ginger. I should have waited to the end of the evening to get that shot. That was my first selfie. I had my tripod up and finally learned how to set the timer. Happy New Year to you.

  2. I must say Ann's meal looked super delicious!

  3. Yes, Ann's meal did look quite delicious. I wanted to post my video that I posted on facebook but I couldn't figure out how to get it uploaded to Youtube and then to the blog. I was following the instructions but it wouldn't load. Anyhow, this was a great post and you chose some good spotlights.

    1. I watched your video yesterday on FB, wondered why you didn't link up to FSO - now I know. Who was the little girl singing? When I clicked on the icon to the right it didn't link??? Have a happy and safe new Year's

  4. Thank you, Ginger, for spot lighting my photo, 'though in all honesty it was my son's photograph. Even so I did all the rest of the work! Looking forward to joining you all next Friday.

  5. Oops! I think I should have been thanking Pauline! So sorry, Pauline. It was nice of you to think of me anyway.

    1. ChrisJ, really there is no rule that says you have to be the photographer. But a family photo/tradition is a family photo.
