Winter Beauties in Sunshine

Kissin goin on here!


I took my tree down this weekend, it was crispy!  It went from fine last weekend to a crying shame this weekend.  I have packed away every bulb, bell, and bawble, and swept up every tree needle, tinsel, and ribbon shred.  I did leave a winter scene on my mantle.

Snow flakes and candles!

Merry Christmas (belated) to all and to all a good night!

Taken Christmas Eve spent with just me and Hubster!

About cascadecountry

I am finding that being grateful makes what you have more than enough!!!! I am grateful for my husband of 40+ years, my grown children and their spouses, my eight grandchildren, my two doggies. I am surrounded by a wonderful family and friends who bless my life, and I believe in the undeserved redemption that is mine in Jesus! Hubster and I live in a small mountain village in the heart of Idaho and are so grateful for the beauty that surrounds us.
