Friday night the Church Christmas social came off without a hitch. The food was delish and the pageant was really good. The actors and singers and narrators were wonderful. It's a nice break from the commercialism of the season. This is a pair I'm sure you recognize. Mike made a very nice Joseph ( he delivers our mail too!) and little Amanda, one of the young ladies in our branch made a sweet Mary.
Remember I said in the previous post that Jack was going to be King Herod? Well, it's a dark shot, but here he is in all his Kingly glory!
Saturday we got lights put up outside. The temps were nice and warm..40de. Then we actually got the tree up too! It's a blurry pic, but now the decorating is complete and I'd better get the shopping done!
Today we have a winter storm on it's way..Church was let out early to make sure everyone got home safely as many members live far distances. I was having some families over for lunch...As I've said many times, the weather Gods aren't too good to me! The storm kept a few people away and we asked another family if they wanted to stop over. It was a lot of fun and it's nice to be able to sit around and talk and enjoy a meal. It was so nice I forgot to take pics! The snow stopped for a bit and after everyone left I decided to take a walk in a winter wonderland. Lucky for me I didn't have to go far. I headed up to the creepy woods. The sign was rendered blank and I guess that means it's not so creepy during the winter! It wasn't creepy until the winds kicked in. A woods is not a good place to be when it's windy. But before I left I was able to snap a few pics.
This area is were the scary ghost stories were told back in October...they too, don't look too scary, but I think your bum would feel that cold snow if you would decide to take a seat!
The snow was lovely as I walked up the back lane..
Around the bend..I saw a bunny running like crazy to get home before the winter storm gets here. Ooops..he was so fast I didn't get the pic!
I left pumpkins from Halloween and Thanksgiving out in the woods so any creature that needed a snack could enjoy them. I thought I spied some deer last week stopping by for taste and from the looks of it, they did enjoy the innards!
I made a beeline for home, enjoying the looks of the pines with some white frosting on them.
Well, another weekend is almost over. This drive will lead you home...come back again and bring a sled. I think we're going to get the snow to make a good sled run!
