I thought I would put together some tips on how to photograph your tree...because we all want to see your tree in all of it's splendor...not just a mass of green or a mass of lights...unless of course, that's what you want...(smile).

Here are a couple of tips I've found around blogville...(I'm tired of using the words "blogland" and "the blogosphere" - "I'm a loner, Dottie, a rebel" - name that movie)...


No, that's not my house...I wish...

Here's a great forum discussion on how to do it...

Now, of course, that's certainly not all of the information on the web...I just found a few that seemed to contain a lot of good information...

I hope you all had a great weekend! We had our Polar Express weekend at church (all of the volunteers dress up like train conductors & we serve hot chocolate & ice cream sandwiches to all of the guests - this year we had 1300 people!...then we pass out Santa hats & bells...it's so so so much fun...the kids love it!)

I was able to finish the Christmas cards & get some handmade gifts done (yay!) - all of the gift cards & teacher's gifts have been purchased and most of the other gifts, too...woo hoo!!! I am bound and determined not to spend my entire Christmas Eve wrapping gifts!!!

Did you get anything Christmas-y done this weekend?
