Santa Claus Is Coming To Town !


Hey, it's Christmas here at North Ranch in Arizona. This is the front of our house and we have added a few more lights this year. Those lights around the window on the right are little Harley Davidson emblems, They are compliments of good friend Gregg. He also gave us a string of lights that were shotgun shells with lights in them. Neat!

There are also lots of signs that Christmas is in the air inside the house. Ms. Pat has the place all decorated up. Here is her beautiful table setting.

The refrigerator reflects this time of the year, and the Christmas cheer rack is decorated with Christmas bows and Ms. Megabyte2’s hanging stockings.

The window sill above the kitchen sink looks neat as Santa skates on the “Ice”!

The front door which is inside the screened porch is decorated with a neat little Christmas tree we obtained several years ago from our good friend Dale. It is especially pretty as it changes colors constantly.

Here is our “SPECIAL” Christmas Tree. Special because my Mom made it at a ceramics class in an RV park in Apache Junction, AZ, where they spent their winters for over 10 years. Ms. Pat always adored the tree and Mom made sure she got it when she left us.  So the presence of this little tree is special, because as I look at it, I see Mom. We sure miss her, as we do all the other members of our family that aren’t here with us anymore. However, we know that the Christmas celebration they are having up in Heaven has to be one of the greatest of all….

All this Holiday excitement just wears Ms. Megabyte2 out, so she crawls into her bed and curls up with her buddy.

We hope you all are enjoying all the holiday decorations as that big date gets closer and closer. The King is Coming, The King is coming!!

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!

Thanks for stopping by and we hope your Christmas shopping is done. The stores are packed down this way.

God Bless you all, as we say a prayer for all those involved in that terrible tragety at the school in Newtown, CT.  We are all so saddened by this horrible event.

My mom made a Christmas tree like yours. When we started fulltiming in July, I gave it to my Granddaughter. Love those trees!

Looks like you two are in the holiday spirit. I see the stockings are hung but not exactly by the fireplace with care. But I like the place you chose for them.

Paul and I wish you a very very blessed and Merry Christmas.
