Holiday Cheer

Been enjoying my share of Holiday Cheer over the past few days!!! I finished my outdoor Christmas decorations, perused through crafts and gifts at a Holiday Gift Fair, started gathering photos of downtown store fronts all decorated for the holidays, and attended an absolutely awesome Christmas concert this afternoon! Now, if I can just get off my keester and finish the inside decorations, get my shopping done, and get those Christmas cards out in the mail, I’ll be all hunky dory!!!

Here are a few of my fav photos from the past few days:

The song that rendered me to mass tears was Alec Sherman singing “How Great Thou Art”!!!

And…..last, but not least……my wonderful “Dr. Seuss” tree – I adore this tree! If I don’t put up any other decorations, THIS one will always be in my yard!!!
