Rick and Rebecca Bennion posed for this photo Monday night, just as they did in 2005.

The photo on the left appeared in a local newspaper at Rebecca's first tree lighting in 2005; the photo on the right is Rebecca and her dad Monday night striking the same pose at the tree lighting.

Pictured here are Rebecca and Rick Bennion of Belmont at the Carlmont Shopping Center Holiday Tree Lighitng Ceremony--twice.

The first shot on the left was taken by a local news photographer at Rebecca's first lighting in 2005 when she was just an infant, the second photo was taken Monday night at the 2013 lighting ceremony.

Rebecca, a third grader, at Notre Dame Elementary sang in the chorus with her classmates as part of the evening's festivities. 

Rebecca's mom Nicola and twin sister Olivia looked on as Rebecca and Rick re-enacted the photo taken on the very same spot eight years ago. 

The Bennions, who live within walking distance of the shopping center, say they've made the tree lighting an annual family tradition.
