Another picture

Here is another shot of the outdoors with the flash blocked.

Christmas decorations

I forgot to post pictures of our decorations. I went overboard outside but it looks nice. No one else on our block put up any lights this year. It is depressing. At least I still have some and my husband is actually proud for the first time (he didn't help at all though). The new tree turned out nice. Since it is in the corner due to remodeling the living space and its not done I had to leave half of my ornaments off. Next year I will have to figure out a different configuration. Maybe we can get a bigger place by then-who am I kidding?? Just baking and wrapping to do now so I am on the final stretch. I hope you are all having a wonderful Holiday.

December 7th

Wow, Thanksgiving came and went. I cooked twice. Then nothing for days. Now we are in the fast track to Christmas. Been decorating like crazy. I have the outside done and the village, tomorrow the tree. Then wrapping, sewing, knitting, mailing stuff and then it will all be over until next year again. I hope to post some pictures this week if all goes well. My sons truck blew up yesterday and my other son is laid off so this year we are hurting like the rest of you. What a way to end the year. Bummer. Lets see what the new President will come up with next year. Hope you aren't all going crazy yet.
