Happy Holidays to all!!!
Every Christmas, someone in my family is the designated Santa, distributing the gifts under the tree in a timely and thoughtful manner--not too many at once, and keeping an eye out for who is empty handed...and this Christmas will be no different. Today on Lenscratch though, I get to play Santa and share your wonderful photographic gifts all at once, like a cornocopia of holiday riches. Thank you so much for reading, supporting, and being part of the Lenscratch community. I am truly grateful for how you enrich my life, and prove to me over and over what an amazing community this is. Thank you for sharing posts, retweeting tweets, and adding your thoughtful comments.
Again, huge thanks to Sarah Stankey and Grant Gill for all their assistance.
May this week and this day be filled with love, laughter, and photographs.

My late mother bought the nativity scene the year I was born and gave to me when I moved into my first apartment. While it remains for the most part intact, most of the hay is gone and Joseph is missing. The Frosty's are decorations I've gotten a few years ago while the tree & lights are fairly new. The culmination brings so many wonderful memories of my childhood and eagerness for new memories.
