We’ll have to come back to these.  Currently we have one gift purchased.  It’s for my father-in-law, and it’s not even wrapped. I think I went on long enough about the dang tree… and decorating it this year was nothing extra special.  The Card.  The thing staring up at me every day this week from my to-do list.  I have the tripod out, and every day that I put more than just cursory make-up on I think, “This is the day for the picture.”  Because, come on, getting the guys ready for the picture takes all of 3 minutes.  It’s on the to-do list, so hopefully it’s marked off by the end of the week.

How about a picture of our sweet helper today?  She had so many great ideas for the advent wreaths…
