What fun, Beans!  That is a wonderful holiday tradition and I loved seeing the look on your grandson's face, especially when he caught the wrapper on the plate!   :eclol

Thanks, Laurad.  PB is giving me problems in that I can't see videos that are uploaded there, not even my own, although I can upload videos to my album there and post them for others to see.

Madrona says that PB locks her computer up when she is leaving there.

It doesn't matter whether I use IE8 or Firefox - same thing.  I can't figure it out.



Beans - what a fun thing to do!

Wow Beans ~ The video of your grandsons was as cute as can be.  :biggrin3
I raised three boys and they would have loved this custom, also!
Priceless look on their faces!

Thank you Ann. Cute video, beans - most of us would have panned the cam up to the burning paper, but watching the kids was much more fun.

beans that video is really what Christmas is all about. The joy on those gorgeous little faces just warms my heart. :ecsmile

I thought I would share this photo that my daughter took from her back deck. She used it for her Christmas cards this year.



Here it is as her Christmas Card. I absolutely love it. Nature at it's best. She calls it her Winter Wonderland.

Absolutely beautiful pictures!  Love the birds.  :eclove

I filled up all the bird feeders and the two squirrel lunch boxes this morning.  It has been 35 - 45 degrees here, and the birds that winter over in our area are very hungry.  The Anna's hummingbird and his mate were enjoying the flowers on the various salvia plants.  I let them grow very large in the winter, when food is limited.

Cobbler, that is a beautiful card indeed.  I must admit that I looking forward to a white Christmas with family.

beans, the birds will be singing your praises and letting others know where there is food. :nod2
