All Ready for Christmas

Casa Grande
Home Base

There's something exciting about taking out all the Christmas decorations.  We actually put up two trees.  One is a cowboy tree.  If you've ever been to our house, then you'll understand.  The second tree is what we call "Our World Tree".  This is a smaller tree but whenever we traveled internationally (before RVing) we would buy an ornament from that country.  In some cases, we bought a key ring representing the country as was the case in Swaziland which didn't have ornaments.  Bill always put the date on them.  It's 20 years of memories every time we take them out.  

This is our "world" tree.

This is the cowboy tree.  

Now what goes with a cowboy tree but a cowboy nativity set.
And since it was so difficult to find one, we found another one outside of Yellowstone that we had to have.
And of course, you need to have a larger cowboy and cowgirl to go with it.

This is a cowboy music box.

How about a cowboy bobblehead?

Friends never are at a loss for words.
Do you think Jim wanted to get his hands in there?
I think they've solved all the world problems.
And they say women talk a lot.
Vern and Polly Folger are two special people in our lives.
It's truly amazing how you meet someone RVing and it's like you've known them your entire life.  The strange thing we've all said, is we met them all across the country and the following morning departed.  But some unknown force kept us in touch and now they are family.
As usual, I didn't think about taking pictures until it was almost too late.  

It's just the beginning of great fun this time of the year.
