Merry Christmas to You

I wish you a VERY Merry Christmas.  I hope your day was full of all the things your hearts desire.  It's a time of the year to visit with family and friends.  And not to mention the kiddies home from school for over a week!!!  Shhh, we are not to mention that!!! LOL

Today I am going to share with you the Christmas card I sent out this year.  This is of our pine tree in the backyard.  The adorable tree stands 2 feet tall.  All year long it's got white solar lights on it and during the holidays I add colored solar lights. 

I took this photo in March when we still had snow on the ground.  It took a while for the snow to go down so we could see the tree again but once it was down enough I took the camera on the tripod outside and took a few photos.  This is the one I liked the best and I pulled the picture into the GIMP program (it's a wonderful and free program on the Internet) and I added the words.  Then as the year went on companies such as Winkflash, Snapfish, Shutterfly and Walgreens had offers for free or penny photos so I got these all done for the low cost of shipping!  I couldn't pass up a deal like that.  I usually make a snowman and use his photo on the card but we didn't have enough snow to make a snowman and I already had these photos done.  I'm still waiting for that nice sticky snow.  Let's hope I get just one so I can make my snowman!!  I may have to ask Santa for a snow cone maker next year so I can make my own in the house and send them outside when I'm done!!! The sounds of a desperate snowman maker!!! LOL

Merry Christmas to you!
