I was so excited to get on here last night and see this thread started. Thanks Crown! I am hoping I can post some great pictures myself this year, since I have my iPhone. I can't wait!

Sorry for the size, but this is the card display at my local Target. It's small for now (because it's next to the Halloween stuff--weird!) but it'll grow.

There is/was plenty of excitement! I'm glad you can "see" it! There just are not many things better than being able to share signs of Christmas with the rest of the world. It has begun, indeed!

You're welcome, Crown. I'm always glad to contribute!

(I should give Kim credit, however... My blackberry ran out of batteries, so she came to the rescue with her android phone! It was actually a win-win, too, since her phone takes much better photos than my blackberry!)
