 It is December....
and we still have a lot of leaves on the trees...
even after all the wind we have had the last few days...

 I have been playing with manual settings...
also with using my tripod....
I'm feeling more comfortable with them both...

 Stringbean and I have started listening to Christmas music...
reading Christmas books...
 We usually wait till 12 days before Christmas to put up our tree...
I love Christmas...and I don't like to put it up to early...
or I get tired of it...
the tradition was started when my son was little...
him having a December birthday...
I wanted to keep the two separate...
when he was 8 or 9 he told me he didn't care...
but I liked the way it was...
so have pretty much stuck with it all these years...

there's no better love...
thank grandparents love...

my mother alwasy put her tree up two weeks before Christmas and took it down on NY day. when my kids were little i did the same thing. 4 years ago i decided i like the nook twinkling and started putting the little tree up on TG day or day after and leaving it until end of January. but it is small and in the nook. mothers trees were live and would not last longer than the 3 weeks.
