Christmas Décor and Stuffs

I was just playin’ around with the Christmas Bokeh in the house last week. Fun to try and capture it a bit!

Here is the lovely annual advent calendar that the kids got this year from Bob and Alice McGgee. This year was no different than all the others…shortly after Thanksgiving the envelope comes and the kids get right to opening them day by day. What a cool tradition that the McGee’s have blessed us with!

Christmas is so pretty…and yet as of today…I am ready for it to be gone. How does that happen!! We have friends coming tomorrow so I don’t want the big mess associated with the tear down right before they come…sure enough though Sunday afternoon rolls around and I will be putting it all away Smile!

Minnesota Frosting…This never gets old!

This is my view out of my office. It was so great to see the sun this morning after what felt like a whole week without it. IMG_3025 copy

I did decide to brave the cold by putting on my boots and a hat and snapping some quick shots outside this morning. I didn’t last long since my fingers were a bit too chilly! The snow is so deep right now. The snow went up to my knees and that didn’t even get all the way down. IMG_2990 copy

This is my garden…it sure looks different in the winter!IMG_2996 copyIMG_3000 copyIMG_3002 copyIMG_3003 copyIMG_3005 copyIMG_3008 copyIMG_2979 copyIMG_2983 copyIMG_2986 copyIMG_3014 copyIMG_3023 copy

Epiphone at Chrsitmas

Minsan’s Epiphone is an amazing shade of red and we realized that at Christmas time it seemed especially spectacular…so, without further ado, here are the shots of it I took the other day.
