Better late than never... Thought I'd share some of my Christmas preparations and sights with you.
While digging through some boxes in the basement, I found these old poinsettia and holly sprigs. Since this grapevine tree gets so much weather, I figured they'd be durable enough to dress it up for Christmas.
This love-seat rocker faces the drive, so I decided hanging the wreath on it would brighten this corner of the porch.
We have decided that this tree we planted last year will be our official outdoor Christmas tree. It's a bit bigger than the one I had lights on before, so new lights are on the list for next year.
I love my fiber-optic tree... no ornaments. I just plug it in and enjoy the colors. And I can see the outdoor tree through the window.
Mr J's lodge has an annual Christmas party with Santa. Grands #1 and #2 are too old for this kind of stuff, but #3 and #4 love it!
The older girls love exploring the woods. I think they made the mistake of letting Sadie lead the way and came out in a big mess of hedge apple trees... OUCH!
...and no gate! Luckily Mr J keeps a wide path cut all along the fences.
Even though we didn't have a white Christmas, the days following were spotted with snow showers. Here's one we drove into taking the grands home. I took this because it drives Mr J crazy when I pull out the camera in the car!
I agree with Dorothy... There's no place like home. I love our driveway at night. I'm always looking for the deer in the headlights.
The snow seems to be getting deeper as we get closer to the creek. I can tell we're getting close to the house...
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!
