Christmas Hustle & Bustle

In case you couldn't guess, blogging was light today while I did some Christmas shopping and decorating. We went to see our families for Thanksgiving this year, and so the holiday season hasn't had much impact on us; the First Mate and I have both been feeling a lack of Christmas spirit, and so we haven't decorated or shopped at all before now. Due to the expense of traveling to California with our son, daughter-in-law, and the Little Admiral, we had warned our family not to expect too much this year. (And then we promptly spent more than we planned, of course.)

Anyway, we're still working on our house and the gifts, mostly for the Little Admiral, but due to an unexpected Christmas bonus, I was able to purchase a long-desired digital camera. I bought the Canon A70, mostly due to the higher quality and the fact that it uses compact-flash memory, which I already own. In order to justify this expenditure, I'll post evidence that I actually did something to decorate for the holidays:

As you can see, I do a great job of decorating! If you look closely -- and I know the quality isn't that great as I had to save the image in a low-filesize format -- you'll see that I left the bottom third of the tree undecorated. I figure this is the only way to keep the Little Admiral from decorating the room with my tree decorations ... Here's the Little Admiral with the First Mate, last night while we were babysitting:
