This is the ultimate Christmas song. Now its time to put the kids to bed to wait on ole’ Santa and then snuggle up on the couch with the one you love. Enjoy!
The entire Carpenters Christmas Album is one I listen to every year. Here is a short selection for you. Enjoy!
I started this post a couple of years ago when we still had the house in town. I decided it might not be a good idea to post this in case my insurance agent stumbled across it so I just saved it in drafts, but now it is ready. I think fire safety is especially important this time of year due to fires caused by Christmas lights and electric heaters so I am posting it now.
This is a building on the corner of downtown which burned recently. The downstairs were office buildings and upstairs was a residential apartment. A fire started from a faulty space heater; fortunately no one was injured. They are tearing it down and cleaning it up. I sure could use some of that rubble to fill in some of the gully behind the house.
We were in the process of cleaning out the last of our stuff from the old house in town. We went in recently and noticed the pump for the aquarium was not running. When I checked it out I found this sight above. This cheap electrical strip shorted out and we were very, very lucky the house didn’t catch on fire! When I saw this my stomach did a flip flop let me tell you! I’m thanking my lucky stars everything turned out OK. Do you have fire extinguishers handy? We do and so should you. Keep prepping everyone.
This song just makes Christmas seem joyous and cheery. Enjoy!
One of the local churches has a Living Nativity Scene and they include some live farm animals. These animals are actually petting zoo animals.
I liked this cute, little baby donkey.
How about a miniature horse? If you look closely at the woman taking pictures, you will see she only has one leg. She whips around on those crutches so well I know she has been that way for some time. It should remind us all to count our blessings, especially at this time of the year.
There were a couple of cows, several goats, a llama, and a miniature camel.
There were a couple of sheep.
Not to mention a pot-belly pig. Now, I don’t think they had a pig at the original Nativity since Jews don’t eat pork because they consider them to be unclean. If they think pigs are nasty, I guess they have never raised chickens. Chickens will eat anything! Here is our Christmas tune for this evening. Enjoy! ONLY 4 MORE DAYS TILL CHRISTMAS. YOU BETTER GET READY!
