It's Almost Christmas


This is what it's come to. My family isn't large. But.  At Christmas I have 6 nieces and nephews, 2 siblings, 2 in-laws and a parent to wrap for.  Plus.  4 December birthdays.  But I ran out of tape just before I got through the Christmas presents  And I couldn't find the birthday paper I know is here somewhere.

I used painter's tape to finish the Christmas presents.  And when I got the the boys' birthday presents, I decided to make the masking tape intentional.

Necessity is the mother of clutch plays.

Foggy Night

Latkes & Dreidels

Tonight I spent with friends celebrating the second night of Hanukkah...there were 3 of us for whom this was a new experience.  It's always wonderful to be with friends and it is especially wonderful to get to share their traditions.

A Little Something Different

At the link below, you can get in on a 20 year tradition of seasonal songs but with a little something different.  This year is jazz flavored.

I loved this vintage Santa when I saw him last night...we had a small one just like him when I was growing up.  

And this is just a glimpse of the lobby of my building...I love all the lights and reflections. I'm going to have to try this again tomorrow.

Holiday Wreath

I thought of something to do with the catalogs I've been receiving since October 31.  It's not too late to make it my holiday card - what do you think?

There isn't anything in focus here...and that's because I saw this in my viewfinder and flinched.  But it's kind of funny, don't you think?

My neighbor hangs ornaments in the tree in her front yard and they were so beautiful in the morning light today.
