This is why I usually do it yearly

I am wading through thousands of photos right now. I am caught up with my scrapbooking through December of 2006. Then, I took over 10,000 photos in 2007.  Each day of photos is on our hard drive book with an individual folder. It is going to take FOREVER!

Thus why I usually do it every Christmas vacation, but I couldn't in

2007 - my mom died, and I had to catch up with all I left behind because I was gone all of November
2008 - I'm sure there was a good reason (Maybe looking at my photos will give me a clue :))
2009 - I could not sit up due to my back going out on December 18.
2010 - So far, I did two years of Christmas photos end of 2006 (I had done through Gingerbread houses) and 2007.

Christmas Eve and All is Well

Christmas Tree 2010

This is our twelfth year going to Donovan's Christmas Tree Farm (http://www.donovanplace.com/christmas_t­ree_farm.html). It is a wonderful family tradition for us.

Warning: I didn't turn the video off and put the lens cap back on, but it afforded us the opportunity to learn how long it took us to decide on a tree.

This is the longest we have ever taken to pick a tree: just shy of THREE minutes! We Weavers are easy to please, and it was great fun! Sorry for the blackout.

I have 12 more to go!!!! I just finished: 


The Great Crash of 1929 by John Kenneth Galbraith. Let's not let history repeat itself! It was a fascinating read in every way. I recommend this too: 


The 1930's which is from the PBS Show American Experience.
