Happy Winter Solstice Little Bear!

I'm heading out this morning with the kids and another family to see the Winter Solstice sunrise.  Soon, very soon, the daylight hours will get longer and longer. Sun up isn't until 9:15 today, so I thought I would share the pretty pics I took yesterday from my back deck.  Here it starts...


And here it comes!


And it deepens...


And check out those colors!


And then about five minutes later, the sun was up and behind an overcast cover, and everything went grey.  The sky changes SO fast!  It got nice and sunny later and we spent nearly 2 hours playing on the frozen lake across the street in the mildest weather ever. Our family enjoyed turkey dinner and opened gifts last night to celebrate 'the longest night of the year'.  It was awesome!  Here's crossing my fingers that I can put these paints to work soon on those skies...



Happy Holidays everyone! ; )

What a lovely way to celebrate winter solstice. I was thinking I'd never be up early enough but you sunrise is late. I believe ours is around 8 am. Your paint colors seem to match the skies perfectly.
I'm curious as to what you cook for Christmas Day.
