Got a good reason For taking the easy way out


Life size Nativity in town...

Sunday morning before the football games were televised, I had to get to the store to buy some groceries for snacking and dinner that night. The sun was out, the sky was clear, and before we headed to the store, we drove to a home in town that was shown on the local news. The owner of the home has annually created a Christmas yard display...adding to it every year. I admit, we were there many years ago, and when we found the house this year, IT WAS INCREDIBLE!! Let me describe it a bit first. In his yard, he builds his own stable, using natural-found things with the likes of palm fronds, spanish moss, driftwood and stone. EVERYTHING he creates is life-sized!

- - -  On the opposite side of town there is a large neighborhood that is called Candy Cane Lane [not just one street, but several] that is decorated with lights!!!!

More of our tree with lights glowing on the decorations - angels, icicles, ornaments and snowflakes...

Ann, at Ann's Snap Edit Scrap showed us a project she tried with Dollar Tree purchases; making gnomes. I thought they were so cute, I had to try it. Altho, I had no beard items, I improvised and used what I had on hand...cotton balls for the beard.
