I've been feeling like the Grinch this year so Rob decided to take me out for a Christmas spirit transplant. The idea was to look at pretty decorations and just enjoy the day. No stress.
Aren't these pretty? They're made of pine cones and sprayed and sparkled. They're especially nice with a whole bunch of them together. Very cheery.
I guess these would have looked better after dark when the lights show up, but I wasn't going to wait around that long.
Here are some more twig deer. They'd be pretty in our back yard, but my dogs would probably decide to chew on them, after all they are sticks, right?
Well, here we are at the North Pole, Missouri branch. What a charming little greeter.
We headed for Santa's workshop and found this fellow standing guard.
Santa wasn't in. Guess he slept late, but we saw this elf trimming the place.
I couldn't fit the whole tree in the shot. It must have been 20' tall.
Here come Santa. He was out test driving the reindeer.
The whole team is here.
Looks like they're ready for the big trip at the end of the week.
This big bear has his arms full of little animals. I guess he's giving them a bear hug. I want the big guy.
We stopped off for some coffee and some coconut shrimp and saw these little fellows sitting in the wreaths.
Maybe all these happy sights are starting to work their magic on me. It seems like a lot of people are having a tough time finding their holiday spirit this year. Have you found yours?
