'Tis the Season!

We spent part of our day stringing popcorn and pieces of fruit, then coating pine and spruce cones with peanut butter and mixed seeds, culminating in decorating an "outdoor Christmas tree" in our yard. It's all part of an annual tradition we just started: Christmas Eve day is for thinking of the wildlife. Sure, the squirrels will take down the cones before the birds even find them, but it's the thought that counts. Come to think of it, a good lesson for all of us to remember tomorrow as we're exchanging gifts to show our love and appreciation for family and friends.


Regardless of how you celebrate this season, Season's Greetings to you all!
