Waiting on Christmas

By tonymarq
Hi Everyone and hope all are well on epz! Well it's almost that time of year so figured i would start the Yule Tide Spirit a little sooner this year as with a little one running around the house asking everyday how many days left it's easy to get the Holiday bug,lol! So in the spirit of things and as Thanksgiving is next week which makes the Holidays speed up i'm posting one from last years Christmas Holiday! Took a pic of ty reflected in our Bay window and played with selective coloring. hope you like!

stay well
