From Our House to Yours

This is the last chance I have to post before Christmas and to invite you to stop in for some hot cider and cookies. We'll have the lights on to welcome you and the fire burning to keep you warm.

Hubby loves decorating the outside and I let him run with it. He does a great job!

My snowman is on the front tree this year instead of the front door. Hubs loves to wrap the polls with red stripes, as well as the lights and greenery.

He had a little help in hoisting up the big wreath.

He added a little Christmas tree between the garage doors this year.

A view from a different angle.

We haven't had blanket lights on the bushes before either. He was anxious to add them.

Look we have some visitors. No, I was wrong they are thousands of protesters who showed up to protest global warming.

What I learned about life from snowmen...

It's okay if you're a little bottom heavy.
It takes a few extra rolls to make a good midsection.
Hold your ground, even when the heat is on.
There's nothing better than a foul weather friend.
Wearing white is always appropriate.
Winter is the best of the four seasons.
The key to life is to be a jolly, happy soul.
We're all made up mostly of water.
You know you've made it when they write a song about you.
Accessorize! Accessorize! Accessorize!
Don't get too much sun.
It's embarrassing when you can't look down and see your feet.
It's fun to hang out in your front yard.
There's no stopping you once you're on a roll.
Seriously, we would love for you visit and we wish you and your family a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
