This photo is of our Christmas tree from many years ago. It’s pretty, isn’t it? Now, look close. See that red ribbon going horizontal in front of the tree? That is the top of a fence…a fence made of chicken wire. Yep, we had to fence in our tree that year. We had some dogs…they liked to get into all the presents under the tree. They chewed up a lot of them. That’s why I made a fence to keep them out. We had the chicken wire on hand, because we used it for around our vegetable garden the past summer, so that was good.

The chicken wire fence wasn’t all bad. I hung some ornaments from it, and it made for some fun conversations. I know we will always remember this Christmas. 🙂

Here are a few photos of snow we’ve had over the years.

  • Tree and wooden bench in our front yard
  • Evergreen tree covered in snow (from my childhood home)
  • Snow & ice bending tree branches to the ground while our dog walks under (many years ago)
  • View of snow in our back yard a few years ago after a blizzard (stick on penguin and snowman on the glass door)

Here’s a few things you might have for a sweet holiday treat.

A wonderful banana pudding, which we decorated with square shortbread cookies featuring Christmas motifs.

A lovely dish of ice cream. This one I had was peach.

These are a couple of very old Christmas cards. One shows Santa with a gift, and he says, “Hi”, and there is a little deer carrying more gifts on his back. The other photo shows a white fluffy kitten by a white tree with pink decorations. It says “Not a creature was stirring…”

This is a Christmas mouse wearing a Santa hat and coat, and has a stocking of gifts. My mom painted this many years ago. ❤

 Joke – Which candle burns longer – a red one or a blue one? … Neither, they both burn shorter
