My morning rounds includes checking the various growing things, and I finally got a decent photo of my daughter's tulips emerging! The leaf mulch has made it hard to see them in photos, but at this angle, you can see quite a few! There are more, out of frame.

Before I get into my topic, here's a Ginger picture for you to enjoy! I interrupted his nap! 😀 Such a sweet baby boy he is! 🙂 Now, onto less fun stuff.

Today is the first Sunday of Advent. Leyendecker is undisturbed by human regulations and restrictions! 😀 Normally, our tree would have already been decorated, and the Advent wreath, with its candles, set up.
