LIFE'S BETTER IN THE MOUNTAINS

Fridays are Golden

HAVE A WONDERFUL CHRISTMAS, EVERYONE!




Our first artificial Christmas tree works just fine for us. The star atop the tree was made by our son when he was in kindergarten. It has always been on the tree, but never as a tree topper.



The tree is just fine, and this has been a wonderful Christmas morning. We are so grateful for our many blessings, far too numerous to count.

MERRY CHRISTMAS TO EACH OF YOU!!!

And a very Merry Christmas to you too. We went artificial on trees several years ago and it works great (and is far less interesting to The Herd.

Hope your Christmas Day was lovely. Ours turned out pretty good. Mingus loved what was in his stocking!

We used to by potted pines, so that we could plant them after Christmas was done. We ran out of room to plant them, though and have had an artificial tree for the past couple of years. They look just as nice, and don't dry out or shed needles.

We hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Sam and Cisco

You have had quite the month. Glad your Christmas is peaceful and joyful. Wishing you the best in the new year.

Ellie and Lucy are a delight....I just love their faces, they say so much....

The tree is pretty.....it expresses our own individual style. That is what makes it interesting, the fact that we all do it our own way.......
