    1. Great photos! I am ahead of the game this year as far as Christmas presents. My overseas gifts were sent a couple of weeks ago and I took presents down to family at Thanksgiving to be opened up at Christmas. This is very unusual for me, usually I am running around at the last minute.

  11. Your first picture of the church is beautiful. It is so symbolic!! The church, the graveyard with the leafless tree...it makes a powerful statement to me.

  14. Wonderful scenes. I still find graveyards in churches a bit morbid but it looks like a lovely church. - Such a pretty country fence/road. Christmas is coming way to fast, I haven't even started shopping, oh wait I've bought 1 gift.

  18. Both are beautiful views.

    Christmas shopping? You surely don't mean starting that before 2 PM on the 24th, do you?

  19. Beautiful pics but I really love that first one! Only on-line shopping for me this year. Avoiding crowds at all costs. But I don't have much to buy so that should be easy.
