Midweek Blues

On New Year's Day we went to visit our new grandson Sammy. My wonderful Hubby had gotten me a new camera lens for Christmas and I wanted to capture some bokeh from my son's Christmas tree and I grabbed Sammy's favorite toy and took a couple of shots. This was the best. Hope it puts a smile on your face and takes away your mid-week blues.

Thanks for the smiles. This is a wonderful cure for the blues. I think it will even help me get through the snow they say is coming (again)!

Congratulations, Carletta, on being a new grandma again! I am glad you got to visit. I suppose you helped a bit too while you were there.
He does have a cute rattle too!
