    Guess it is time to start on a snow scene layout. The way I have been going, if I started now, I might finish by Christmas.

    Just take that desktop layout you've been working on and cover it with a nice coating of WS snow. After Christmas, vacuum it up. Just make sure to not sneeze anytime between now and then!!!!

    I'm kind of used to Christmas starting early, but it was really bizarre last month to see Michaels with several aisles already full of skeletons and pumpkins before it was even the 4th of July.

    Best get your brussels sprouts on a slow simmer now unless you want them al dente.

    Easter egg anyone?

    I don't "do" Christmas and haven't for decades now. But I do enjoy trains of most any kind. Even if we have to lie to our kids about a fat man etc. Then of course get mad at our kids later for lying LOLOL :D
    The malls sometimes have nice layouts though.

    It's Christmas 2008. It's not 2009, yet!sign1 Nice thing about Hallmark stuff. It's all dated. I also collect the Star Wars and Star Trek orniments!
