A Holy Night, Decorated for Christmas, and A Winter Wonderland

ACEO size paintings (2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inches) in acrylics, graphite pencil and crystal glitter on watercolor paper

I Wish Everyone Happy Holidays and a Very Merry Christmas! ~ I think we are all ready here...tree decorated, gifts all wrapped and ready to be opened, dozens of cookies we are just waiting for Santa now, ho ho ho, impatiently I might add! Hurry up Santa so we can open the presents! We are going to have a white Christmas this year since a big nor'easter storm hit us last weendend with lots of snow. Some of it's melted but the ground is still white, I love it and can't remember having snow for Christmas in many years.

Babs posted one of her favorite Christmas ornaments in her blog 'Off the Wall Art', check it out! What a great idea and I got some pictures of some of ours which I enjoy seeing every Christmas. From the gingerbread house ornament that my daughter painted when she was younger, to the special rocking horse ornament which we got when she was 2 years old. It's hard to believe that little pink horse has been decorating the tree for the last 21 years!

The 'shooting star' sled has been hanging on the tree many years too. My daughter's elementary school class made these little treasures out of popsicle sticks, string, and felt.

Christmas cookies to share!

Big nor'easter blizzard, this pic is from last Saturday night when the snow was coming down hard. We got about 8 inches of snow. The cardinal below was waiting his turn at the feeder.

Happy Holidays to everyone ~ Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!

Love everything I see! From the winter wonderland paintings to the real wonderland outside your door. We only got a little snow and it's mostly gone now. Just rain for Christmas.
Lynnie, I hope you and your family have a safe and warm holiday. Be well.

Thanks Katie and Merry Christmas to you and your family too! We still have snow on the ground here but it's supposed to rain all Christmas day.

I almost feel like I'm at your house!
I can smell those fresh baked cookies!
A little (2-4 inches) of snow coming our way, but we'll be driving south out of it tomorrow.
