Total Lunar Eclipse

A total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice ~ 1:30 a.m.
Ryan and I have been in and out since the eclipse started around 12:30 a.m. trying to decide when we should wake the kids up :)

We woke the kids up around 1 am when the moon was a little over half eclipsed and went and laid outside in the front yard under heavy blankets to take in the fabulous lunar eclipse. Kids were cold and a bit complainy (it is one in the morning) but it was cool to be out there taking it in together.

Hope everyone got to see the eclipse ~ it was pretty cool and apparently there won't be another total lunar eclipse on the winter solstice until 2094.
