Fa La La La La La La La La!
Here it is-my scaled down Christmas tree. For years I have been putting up a 7' tall tree. We've reached that point in our lives where scaling back becomes something we think about more often. I will say that decorating a smaller tree like this goes so much quicker and is so much easier! The only downfall is that I can't put up all of my favorite decorations. But, I think it's a trade-off that I can live with. Maybe next year, put up the ornaments that didn't make it on the tree this year. Why not?
The one below was taken with my cell phone camera using the fish eye lens I got from Photojojo-I got the set of three clip on lenses-one of which was a fish eye, Polarizer and kaleidoscope. Too much fun! It works on the iPhone and the Android smart phones.
My 'angelscapes' scene. I have more angels, but this is all that fit on the top of this unit.
Maybe next year...
We gift wrap kitties for you too! Here's Izzy 'helping' me! He also made it a point to jump in the box that was getting packed up with presents to go to Molokai. Such a rascal!
Having a kitten in the house is one of the reasons why I scaled back on the decorations. I didn't want him getting in to everything and he has a habit of eating just about anything-even if it's not food related!
Stopped by the Golden Crown Panderia the other day to pick up some biscochitos (very much so a Christmas tradition) and discovered that the fence in the parking lot had shadow shots that I needed! Sadly, it didn't take long for me to make short work of those cookies!
Wishing you all the very best this holiday season. Have a Merry Christmas (a white one for some of you-a balmy one for others). We've decked those halls, so just keep singing the 'fa la la la la' part! The world didn't come to an end (no surprise, right?) so we can all look forward to enjoying our shadow shot posts!

Every week, a group of us from around the world post our shadow shots over at Shadow Shot Sunday 2. Entertain your muse and be amused by stopping by to see what others have posted! You can view all of my 2011 Shadow Shot Sunday images on my Flickr account.
