From our family, and our little part of the world, to those who celebrate Christmas, and other holidays during this season of the year, we wish you a joy filled experience with family and friends!
The American Robins and other birds, have been busy eating up all sorts of berries the past several weeks.
The images below are of the train tracks that run the center of our Main Street.
During the Light Up for Christmas festivities, it looks really pretty around town~

Wild Bird Wednesday(http://paying-ready-attention-gallery.blogspot.com.au/)
December is a busy month for us...first is the husby's birthday on the 18 th, mine on 21 st, our 44 th wedding anniversary falls on the 22 nd and then Christmas...a fun filled week!
I have our Christmas tree adorned every year by the first weekend before Thanksgiving.
If you are going to get all of the trimmings out, you might as well enjoy it for a while. Everything is then put away the second weekend in January.
Top right is Meaka who just turned 6 on December 2.
Our Silveit turned 11 months old on the 9 th...I told you it was a busy month ;) and then little Survhee Pipka turned 2 this past June~
When the Yellow-bellied Sapsuckers come to Tingsgrove...I really love it.
They are such awesome birds and so pretty!
This is the male tapping little holes, and then sipping out the sweetness of the sap~
The image below was taken through double plated glass in my father-in-laws Dogwood tree.
He really enjoys the birds, especially the colourful male Cardinals.
I took the liberty of adding a touch of hdr editing to this image and have since created some Christmas gifts using it~
This is the little female Yellow-bellied Sapsucker.
You can see the tiny holes that they tap...very un-intrusive to the trees and they heal over nicely after they are done~
One of our daughters has the loveliest Balsam Fir tree in her yard.
I have placed a Cedar Waxwing and Downy Woodpecker in this mosaic~
This is our little family...the husby and myself, our 3 daughters, two with their spouse, and one with her soul mate, and our 5 grandchildren all decked out with using the fun editing tools from PicMonkey.
That was the greatest of fun when I got bored one day...placing hats on everyone~

This is my beloved 90 year old father-in-law...Dr. William Rush Cromer...
I adore him and the feeling is mutual...
Dad suffers from short term memory loss and it is getting worse...quite sad, yet he is healthy otherwise~
This is the same Santi Ho Ho hat that the girls always placed on our hearth along with cookies and carrots as young children.
They would hand the hat to their daddy as he was the elf on Christmas morning~
I cannot say enough about these wonderful Long Coat German Shepherds...
For all of the wild berries eaten by the wildlife in recent weeks, many still remain.
Last week we had an icing and then snow and I got a few images to share in the red and green tradition of the holiday season.
You can see Honeysuckle berries, Holly, Fire Bush and Rose Hips.
Sweet blessings to all~
