We arrived at The LakeHouse and snow welcomed us!
It was beautiful and it put me in the spirit to decorate for Christmas!
Using the Evergreens in our backyard, the tartan napkins that my sister gave me and Christmas plates from the Dollar Store … the Christmas spirit came to the LakeHouse!
I also got out a small tree to decorate the sunroom. This one has special meaning to me. When my youngest son was in the 4th grade, the teacher asked for $5 for their Christmas project. A few weeks later this tree came back with his homemade cinnamon ornaments and lights on it. It had a place on our Kitchen table at Christmas for years. It moved to the LakeHouse and today I am going to give it to my son. Shhhhh… it’s a surprise!
The living room got a touch of Christmas as well!
After the little bit of decorating.. out to the snowy wilderness I went! Up the road… I saw those two evergreens. So off I trekked to get closer.
It was gorgeous to see the trees covered in snow and ice droplets. The quiet and the crunch of the snow… was priceless!
It was worth the trek! A quiet winter wonderland! All that was missing was a red cardinal! 😊
Later… a walk by the lake showed us that the Canadian Geese were stopping by before it became frozen.
The kids at the local elementary school were enjoying recess!
They were not the only ones playing! So was I!
Enjoy the moments that surround you and remember to find your Christmas Spirit!
Until Next Time ~Nancy

You certainly are in a winter wonderland! I love the story of the cinnamon Christmas ornaments. The ornaments our children and grandchildren made for us my favorites.
They sure are! I love them!
Awww, I bet your son will be so pleased. It’s sure cute! Enjoy!
He did love to see it again. He enjoyed it very much!
Thanks for stopping in! It’s always good to hear from you.
It’s my pleasure, Nancy. Your blogs are great! As are your photos!
That is a wonderful gift to you and him! Thanks for stopping in on my blog too, Nancy. 🙂
Merry Christmas to you and yours…..your pictures display your enjoyment of your surroundings inside and out. Love you dearly.
Hugs!! Love you right back!
Now that is a beautiful winter wonderland! I am impressed that you decorated the lake house. Will you be spending Christmas or back to Arizona? I know your son will love the little memory tree. Your lake home looks festive and cozy!
Cozy indeed! We are having our Christmas today!
Beautiful photos, and I’m sure your son will appreciate the gift.
This year …more then ever!
The Lake House is the perfect spot for your spirit at this time of year, Nance! Thanks for sharing the beauty.
Thanks for stopping by!
Christmas is a-coming! 🙂 Thanks for showing those wonderful pictures of a landscape we won’t see down here in southern Texas!
Have a wonderful Advent-time,
Pit… it was my pleasure. But can you believe that ALL the snow is gone now! ❄️
Glad you enjoyed!
It’ll come back, won’t it?!
Oh yes… I hear some is on its way this evening!
Good for you! 🙂
You are having way too much fun editing 😉 Absolutely beautiful … a winter wonderland indeed!
It was fun… but loved that snow!
It’s all gone now. Every last bit of it!
It all looks so festive. You seem all ready for Christmas!
Indeed! …and thank you!
Would you believe that snow is all gone! Every last bit of it! ❄️
How lovely, Nancy. Both of your trees look amazing and what a heartwarming thing to do to give back to your son something he’d given to you. And all that snow has me very jealous indeed – we’re sweltering over here.
It’s been a wonderful Christmas! …and it has not even happened yet!
Thanks for enjoying!
PS All that snow is gone. It all melted!
A few days into December and Christmas is already wonderful – I love that – and I’m sure you’ll have more snow, just as we’ll have more heat. Time for watermelon and mangoes over here.
I’ll head back to the desert for a little warm up!
Thank you for coming over to enjoy our Winter Wonderland!
Ooh… winter wonderland indeed. Beautiful photos like Christmas cards.
Thank you for sharing, Nancy!
So glad you got to see the SNOW we encountered here in Pennsylvania.
Believe it or not… it’s ALL GONE!
This is the most picture perfect Christmas spirit/winter wonderland post I have seen yet! Just beautiful. Thank you for sharing, Nancy!
Thank you for coming over and enjoying our Winter Wonderland. I am so glad you enjoyed!
Stunning shots…love photography with this kind of thick fluffy snow sticking to the branches! Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!!
It sure DID! It’s all gone now!
Thanks for popping over to see my SNOW!
Oh my goodness, that is a very white Christmas! Your lake house looks so festive, I love the centerpiece on your table especially! How far away is your lake house from your other home?
Both our homes are about a few thousand miles apart. We live in Arizona and our LakeHouse is in Pennsylvania. We go to the LakeHouse around the Holidays to be with the kids. Then we go back in the summer.
I am thrilled that you came over for a visit. Hugs! And thank you!
oh wow, 2 very different climates for sure! We enjoy the differences in our 2 homes, one more formal in a city suburb, and the casual beach atmosphere on the coast, but they are less than 300 miles apart so it’s easy to go back and forth. Enjoy your snowy holidays!
We did and now we are back in sunny AZ!
By the way… I enjoy your posts when you show your different homes! 😊
Oh the snow is so beautiful. Such a contrast to the desert. Hey, you and I have the same Christmas plates from the dollar store. Your Lakehouse certainly is a beauty. Have enjoyed visiting your gorgeous website this past year my dear Nancy. Thank you for sharing and may you and your family have just the best Merry Christmas this year.
And you do the same!
Those plates were a steal! And I am so glad we got them before they sold out.
