Happy Christmas to All

It's Christmas! Yay! For all of you humbuggians (hi Dive). I hope you appreciate some of the fun and the magic of the holiday.

I thought I would post a few photos of last week's Nor'easter in progress. Doug put the lights up and the snow came. I liked the effect of the lights "under" the snow.

The walk was shoveled a few times, but the snow didn't care.

It is cold, but it is pretty.

Tbe snow finally stopped late Saturday night leaving us between 12 and 16 inches of the stuff. I must admit that I like snow this time of year. It is still around on Christmas Day.
On Christmas Eve we passed the boot. The Roadcap family added red suspenders. We decided this year that our college students should be eligible. Unfortunately, Melissa "won" the boot. You can see the look of fear and loathing in her eyes. What will her roommate think?

Okay. I could have posted the Mountain Dew Christmas Tree.

Your home looks so festive! I agree with you about all the commercialism - it's hard to get away from it and get back to the true meaning of the season. Happy New Year to you and yours!

Happy New Year to you Janelle. I anxious to post the paintings I have been working on. My "new" process takes forever. My goal is to post at least one W.I.P. by the end of Christmas break.

Yay for The Boot!
Your house looks beautiful, Neetzy, though you are welcome to keep all that snow. Brr!

Happy New Year to you and the family!

Thanks Dive. I woke up to more snow today. Blame it on the nuts! I am on Holiday break and have no place to go so I don't care. I think I shall go and PAINT!

Happy New Year Neetzy! Looks like you had a delightful Christmas. Glad we didn't have that much snow in upstate NY, even if it is pretty. Enjoy the rest of your holiday!

Thanks Katie! I've had my fill of snow for the next ten years. Happy New Year.

I remember "the boot"! What a hoot!
You have a lovely house and what a great job Doug did on the decorating. (Are christmas lights a good MW weapon, I wonder? I'm thinking strangulation, how about you?)

Lucky Melissa. She sure looks leery.
