Happy Christmas


Each year, a couple of days before Christmas, a mysterious snowman appears in our snowless town.  I like to think that it's Frosty himself, come to life. 

I took this photo yesterday afternoon, and last night at about 8:30 we stopped back by to visit him.  He was holding court (in Kersting Court!), with kids and adults alike posing for pictures with him.  Everyone was having such a great time - I guess he brings out the kid in all of us.

Here's to the hope that we can all find a bit of the kid in ourselves today. 
 
Merry Christmas to You!!

    1. An even more belated Happy Christmas to you, Paul! Love that - Snowless Snowman! He's not exactly snowless - he came down from the mountains in a truck, and was assembled onsite. :)

  5. I expect that this fine snowman is just a distant memory now. Cool idea and even better that you included a hint of 'mountain' in your photo. I'm happy!

    1. Oh, thanks, LOL! I can always count on you to not mind my over-usage of the mountains! :) I drove past last night, and there was still a hint of his former glory - but not much! :)
