It snowed during the night and morning...no painting today...a winter wonderland in my back yard.

.

I'm sorry for the poor image...It was wicked cold, and these carolers had stopped at my house...I was so surprised I didn't get a photo and chased them down in the neighborhood. They changed my mood from pissy to cheerful when they stopped...and I stayed out and took photos of Christmas lights. Joy to the world of carolers.

.

The children were willing to stop a bit longer for a better photo. The dogs and the children didn't seem to mind the bitter cold that arrived after the snow.

I decided to go to Bangor and Brewer, 20 ish miles away for some larger light displays...the biggest I know of is in Brewer ...their electric meter must spin when the lights are on !

9 year old Raiya made her first cake, a birthday cake for Jesus. A birthday party for Jesus is a long tradition at her grandparents house. It was chocolate, moist and yummy.

My Christmas tree inspired by the tree my granddaughter, Sabrina, decorated last year. She had more lights and some blue ornaments on it. On the right of the photo you can see one of the tiny ornaments she forgot to take off the tree. I left it there as a reminder of her visit.
