Instead of scrapbooking I could do that with me and my partner photos.

They've been changing the site a lot over the last few months. It seems like every time I go to use it something new's popped up. That one's probably my favorite of all the photo uploading sites.

Hasn't anyone found some neat pictures to post? Or - anyone have pix of their own home decorations?

Strangely, only a few people have decorated in my neighborhood - and it seems what little is out, is very very minimal this year. I am so surprised.

It's the same on this end of town. Not nearly much by way of lights this year. I'm thinking people are cutting back every way they can, including with the Christmas lights.

Then again, there's not nearly as much time between Thanksgiving and Christmas. It may sneak up on some people and by this weekend you may start seeing some lights going up.

It's just too cold to go out there. I really don't like the cold at all. My son went out yesterday and put up most of the lights. He did the door, the door trees, and these two light up crystally looking trees all by himself. I was quite impressed and very warm.
I'm gonna keep that kid.

Wanna share joint custody? I only need him for some chores and will feed him well and pitch in for clothing.

If you feed me I'll do it!

Wait...you said chores too?

Nevermind.

Careful on the clothing offer, Ani. I swear he's growing an inch a week. He's taller than me now and he's 12!!!!
Anyway, the neighbors have dibs. Your sweet.

Many people probably don't feel like celebrating anything. I know that I am struggling to feel festive.
