A Countryfolk Keepsakes Christmas...

I'm slowly getting the homestead decorated.
But it's rather difficult to get into the Christmas mood when it's 67 degrees outside... in Central New York... in December. WTHeck???
I bet Al Gore is doing the "Happy Dance."
C'mon, you know I can't resist poking fun at ol' Al. **snicker**

But I did manage to get some things done.

I enjoy spending Christmas with some of our great presidents.
Mr. Lincoln is one of them.

I couldn't bring myself to pack away Darla's stocking, so I placed hers and Hannah's at the base of their Christmas tree.

It is now lil' Gracie's tree.

This carved Santa is one of my most precious Christmas pieces. My sweet hubs made him out of wood for me. He is very special.
(So is the Santa)

I've got the outside pretty much set. I plan to snap some photos in the next day or two.

I'll keep you posted.

Happy Tuesday evening!

Oh child, it's hot here also. I wore a hooded sweatshirt while putting up my strand of lights on the lamp post and I almost roasted. I have to admit I got a lump in my throat when I was reading about your doggie Christmas tree. I hope little Gracie has a Merry Christmas this year. We'll be thinking of her.

It definitely feels like Winter here in England. Perhaps your in for a mild one this year? Your home looks so cosy regardless of what time of year it is.

Weather here in my part of CA is 64 in the daytime and 51 at night and that is pretty much autumn here..but certainly not in NY! Not very Christmasy weather at all for you --however, better than 20 and snowing!
Really love the animals' tree...sadly I can't have a tree-my cats would want to be the decorations!
The Santa is beautiful! Your fella is talented!!
Got to dash and get ready for my VA visitor...
Stay safe and think about that present I suggested for Gracie....
