IT'S BEGINNING TO LOOK A LOT LIKE CHRISTMAS - We decided (well Deb decided) it would be fun to spend the holidays at home in the north country, instead of on the boat in the southern climes. It has been close to ten years since we have had the whole decorating experience - and got to admit we are really enjoying it. Here are some pics of the fun things we miss out on by going south.
White Swans on the lake before freeze up
On a pretty, snowy, Sunday - the Smith family at a pheasant hunt.
Georgia & Cooper - taking a break. The guys brought us along to help flush birds - we walked for 3 1/2 hours.
Brad and Izzy - both naturals at this sport.
We were six for six - good job guys - looks like winner, winner, pheasant dinner.
Before the school bus comes - we get some sledding in.
Even Pops and Izzy get into the action
This North Pole Village has been in storage for ten years -
and looking at it through our grandsons eyes - made it all worth it. Of, course not looking forward to the putting away part.
You got to admit - it's kinda pretty - not even tired of shoveling, yet.
Decorating - inside and out.
and December 9th, 2011 - Rick, Deb, her sister Joni & brother-in-law David and her sister Gail - celebrating their parents 61st Wedding Anniversary.
21 days and counting - hoping to be back on Broulee soon!
