The National Christmas Tree

Here's a look at the Christmas Tree on the Potomac River at
The National Harbor, in Washington D.C.
 
Are you getting tired of seeing this same old pose from us?
Truth be told, we are getting tired of it also.
 
So we tried this...
I don't love it as I realized that Chuck and I don't "fit" together
quite like we used to!
 
Then we tried this but our hands were kinda weird.
 
Here's a close up of the tree and, well, this pose just kinda works for us.

Here's what the tree looks like, without us blocking it!
 
This is part of the Awakening Sculpture

Here is Chuck, copying my pose!

More posing...

more copying!!

We had dinner here at Fiorella's.
It's a cute little Italian place, and the pizza was amazing!

Here's a peak of the tree at night, gorgeous right?
I wouldn't mind having this baby on my front lawn!

Gorgeous tree, Debbie! I think it is those BIG winter coats that make it hard for you and hubby to pose. What a great trip to the National Harbor, I enjoyed your photos. Have a great weekend and a very Merry Christmas!

When I saw the first photo I thought, there are Debbie and Chuck in that cute pose. Then you went and changed it. You are so cute no matter what pose, but I do like the first one best!
The Christmas tree is beautiful, especially the night shot.
Have a wonderful Christmas, you two!

Well, you may not be original when it comes to posing -- but the love you have for each other just oozes from your photos and that's what is important. xo

I think you and Chuck fit together in any pose... And the tree is absolutely beautiful!

The sculpture used to be at Hains Point Park in DC. I loved playing on it as a kid and have many photos of my kids at it. Now that it's over at National Harbour, so many more people get to have fun with it...like you!

Muffy's Marks said...

Beautiful photos of you guys and the tree. I couldn't afford the electricity to light it!!! Oh wait, I'm probably indirectly paying for it!! Merry Christmas to you and those you love.

Rosemary Aubut said...

Always love ur pictures!!! That Awakening sculpture is weird ... the Italian kitchen just from the outside, looks delish! ... and I'm chuckling at "how we pose for pictures" ;) You two work best side by side, which I feel speaks volumes about you guys as a couple ... now I know another couple who always takes pictures of him behind her, with his arm around her neck, and her gritting her teeth in a grin, and what do you think THAT tells about their relationship?!
