Twas the Night Before Christmas

We've never had a white Christmas and now it may come true! The robins look like red ornaments in the snowy tree. We are up to 11" of snow!

Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse.
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care,
In hopes that St Nicholas soon would be there.


The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads.
And momma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had just settled our brains for a long winter’s nap.
Happy Christmas everyone! We are dreaming of a white Christmas.

Great minds think alike! We love 'The Night Before Christmas', too:)
Golly your yard looks beautiful. We can't even imagine having all that snow! The robins look so cute in the tree, we would probably let them escape the bitey.

We wish your family a very Merry Christmas:)

I was going to offer you ours but we're just up the road a bit. It is weird isn't it?

I have to admit with all the problems that we've had I don't think Bing Crosby was dreaming of a White Christmas in Seattle...

Hope yours is happy in PDX
