CHRISTMAS IS ALMOST HERE

These photos are courtesy of my neighbours front lawns. They go to so much effort to make them look lovely. It's nice to go out at night and just have a look. My 17 y/old D loves going to have a look at the lights.....they are very pretty.

Well it's only just over a week now till Christmas Day will be here. Some of us have already done our shopping, but if you are like me, well I just do it at the last minute. I admit it, I procrastinate. There are all kinds of jokes out there about women loving to shop, etc., but as for me I do not really like shopping at all. I'm not into the whole CROWD thing. Crowded shops and queues just don't do it for me. I'd rather be home relaxing in a chair. Although, having said that I do love the idea of giving gifts to others, just not going out in the busy world shopping for them.

Santas a bit blurry in this one, but oh well, thought I'd use it anyway....it still looks nice, even if a little fuzzy.

I do however love the whole Christmas thing. I love all the lights, the trees, the carols and the whole spiritual meaning of Christmas. To me it is such a beautiful season. To me it is also about families and being together.
I know some people don't adhere to the religious/spiritual side of Christmas, but for me that's the most important thing of all.

Wow! I am so driving down your street after dark! It looks lovely. Some of our favourite christmas light haunts have disappeared this year, so we're looking out for more!

Looks great! We got our first big snow storm this weekend so now it feels more like Christmas to me! I am a little bit of a procrastinator as well. I have some done, but still need to finish up a couple gifts!
