Loving The Holidays...

My favorite time of the year is fast approaching... I love the Christmas season. I love the chilly air - yes 60 degrees in the evening is quite chilly - thank you very much... The Christmas music playing through the shops - yesterday I heard Silent Night in Cold Stone's.... The decorations..... the colorful lights... and the goodwill towards man kind of feeling.... Sometimes while walking down the street - I just feel like giving a stranger a hug... don't you?

One of the great things about my neighborhood during Christmas time are the homes.. Our neighbors really go all out... One house has a ski lift carrying its passengers around their 2nd story chimney... Another house has dancing santa bears and trains taking their riders around the yard in the North Pole Express... and the lights are spectacular - I bet you could see the lights from the moon - Our neighborhood has become a Christmas tradition for many families to come and enjoy - we have hundreds... thousands... of visitors each year - they come in by foot, bike, car, and tour buses...

We of course decorate our home every year as well - so while browsing around Michael's the other day I ran across some great new decorations and you know I just had to buy them.

I have also been known to decorate the kid and husband..... Have a Merry Christmas and fun decorating!!!

    I did some Christmas shopping today.
    Blessings, andrea

  3. I only wish we had 60 degree evenings here. Usually it's below freezing. Good for you.

    We decorate here too. But not to that degree. I can't remember decorating the family members, but hey, maybe I'll give it a try this year.

  4. I love the decorated kids and hubby. I've been known to do that too.

  5. I never thought about decorating people! :) hmmm...ideas, ideas!

  6. Oh! I want to come and have Christmas with you!

  7. Thanks for putting the Christ in Christmas!
