51|52 Christmas Preparations (Dec 17-23, 2012)
Our decorations for the tree are new this year. We decided to cull some of the very worn and hodge podge ornaments for some new, cohesive looking ornaments. We do have some ornaments that are too meaningful to put aside so we bought a table top tree and decorated it with those.
Last week when we did our family Christmas, I got a new lens and some cool filters for my camera, which I used for the two photos of the trees. The filter makes star bursts of the lights, pretty fun. Keith got an electric smoker. His very first dish in the smoker was smoked olives.
