Day 356 - Sis

While out picking up branches that fell from the trees I noticed one of my painted stumps looked odd.  Well my San Francisco/Berkeley heart started to flutter, because there growing out of the rotted, psychedelic painted thing was this.  No I never indulged in any type of mushrooms, including eating them. My name is not Alice!;-

Day 356 - Lisa

Ohhhhh so cute.  My cousin Kellee surprised me by shipping me this Charlie Brown nativity scene.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
-Luke 2:8-14

Day 355 - Sis

The wind during the little passing storm last night did a bit of tree trimming and decorated the deck.

Day 355 - Lisa

I stopped on my way home from work and picked up Nagano's!  The whole family came out to wish me a Merry Christmas.  The video before is of the Santa that almost gave me a heart attack when I opened the door to the restaurant!

Day 354 - Sis

Knowing I'm protected by the growling, warning of my protective dog from these vicious creatures, gives me a great sense of security.

Day 354 - Lisa

It's a long story but we are doing the 12 Days of Christmas tomorrow at work.  One of our teams had a slight creative meltdown so I stepped in and helped them with props for being Pied Pipers!  Here's their hat!  Stylish I think.  ;>

Day 353 - Sis

Well "IF" Friday arrives, as scheduled on my calendar, the weather here today predicted at 70 degrees, will drop over 40 degrees on the 21st.  So guess the asteroid, fire bolt, or other heat source expected by the Mayans, may instead be in the form of an iceberg.  BRRRR!

Day 353 - Lisa

sunii's first Christmas tree.  She is thrilled, can't you tell?  My mom says she looks like a squirrel with a real fancy tail.

Day 352 - Sis

Ah, received the Christmas gift plant replacement from my sister.  Love it, came with the very cute candle and holder.

Day 352 - Lisa

I think it's scary the resemblance between Hugh Jackman's Wolverine and oneeya when she's playing.

Day 351 - Sis

This beautiful rose beige colored tree looks like it's holding on until winter officially arrives on the 21st, or the end of the world, depending if it follows the Gregorian versus the Mayan calendar.  Hoping we have the answer on the 22nd!

Day 351 - Lisa

When I pulled this card out of the envelope from my Grandma I thought the front of the card was "different" being it was a Christmas card.  Then I opened it and realized my poor Grandma is a bit confused.  LOL!  Oh well, it was the thought that counted.  ;>  She's either six months late or six months early.  As they say here in the South, "Bless her heart!"

Day 350 _ Sis

On this cold Sunday morning I have to wonder if one of them is asking, " And again, why did we follow those geese south?"

Day 350 - Lisa

These are just a "few" of the items I received from my Secret Pal Theresa.  She went a tad crazy with the silly gifts and I love Henri but the clown nose was so ME!
