I had the best of intentions.
And I loved doing the photo-scavenger-hunt-through-December-thing.
But the third week of Advent got the better of me.
However, I DID get one photo that week! Never mind that it wasn´t on the list for the photo challenge.
My week got sidelined by the Nutcracker. This year marked the 30th anniversary of the first time I saw the Nutcracker. I´ve seen it just about every year since.
But this was the first time I got to be in it.
OK, maybe "be in it" is a bit of an overstatement. This Nutcracker had live accompaniment from the state orchestra, and I sing with their choir, whenever they need a choir.
In the Snowflake Scene, they needed a choir! Yee-haw!
So this was my view:

In a way, this was a bit of a dream come true for me, so these photos appropriately embody JOY, for the third week of Advent.
For the fourth week of Advent, I was so behind in making cookies, buying presents, and packing to go see my family, PLUS the last week of school and all those Christmas parties, that the photo challenge was officially dropped.
So, until next year, Advent Photo Challenge! (At least, until Nutcracker Week.)
Until then, bring it on, 2017!
