This year we got 9" inches of snow a few days after I got the Christmas lights put up on the house. It really adds to the holiday spirit. Nearly all of it is gone now, but I have this photo as a memory.
If you follow this blog for any length of time you know my wife has a gift for decorations and Christmas is her very favorite time of the year. Our tree is 9 feet tall and is one of three that we put up each year. The other two are smaller, but all contribute to the joy of the season.
Another one of my wife's creations is this three foot diameter wreath that sits over the fireplace mantel.
Makes Me Merry
As I grow older, memories make me merry. Here is the Grandcrew from about eight years ago. The oldest grand daughter is now seventeen and will graduate from high school this spring. The baby brother is now ten and loves to fish and play baseball. I'll post more recent images later next week, so stay tuned.
On the Door
It goes without saying that the wreath on the door is another creation from the hands of my most talented wife and head elf. In fact, at Christmas, she almost makes Will Farrell's Elf look normal. I helped with this by installing the garland.
2013 Christmas Music Marathon
I know that everyone is busy with last minute details, so before I forget, I am going to post my two all time favorite Christmas music videos. I would give anything to be at the mall when this flash mob breaks out.
There are a lot of popular vocalists that eventually record a Christmas album. Sooner or later many of them take on "O Holy Night". Well, in my humble opinion, this is the best arrangement ever, by a voice that can truly sing it as it was intended to be sung.
Merry Christmas to one and all.
