Log Cabin Christmas - Part 2

Here are a few more photos of our cabin all decorated and ready for Christmas! I am counting down the days until we can drive up there. The snow keeps on coming so I think I need to get my skis ready!

I'm so glad Greg talked me into putting in a log staircase in our home. It was fun to put lights and garland on it for Christmas.

Here's our kitchen bar top all decorated. I also put white twinkly lights on top of the kitchen cupboards.

Here are my 2 little snow birds that Greg bought for me. I love how they are all bundled up for winter.

I love Nutcrackers too. Now I just need to go buy some nuts and put them to work!

I have Mr. Moose on the lookout for Santa on our stair landing.

I still have to go purchase 2 more Christmas presents and then start on all my baking. How about you? Are you ready for Christmas?

Log Cabin Christmas - Part 1

Good morning everyone! I thought I would share a few photos of our Christmas decorated log cabin. For many years I dreamed of having a cozy log cabin and I always thought it would be a wonderful place to spend Christmas. (As well as drive my neighbors crazy with me yelling "Hi there" from the deck. Ha! Next I might break out the schnauzer pajamas....)

Here's my skinny 9 foot Christmas tree. I put it up all by myself! Scout tried to climb onto the ladder to help me hang ornaments. I'm lucky to still be alive...

Here's my electric fireplace. I added some cranberries to the garland afterwards. One day I'll have a fieldstone fireplace.......(Greg is running to hide his wallet right now.....)

Here's a close up of my Santa. Notice that he's carrying a birdhouse? He likes the birdys too.

Here's a close up of my tree. I love my angel ornament. Greg says he hopes she inspires me.......what does he mean by that?!

A snowy morning

We had over two feet of snow up at the log cabin. It was so beautiful but we had a lot of digging out to do. First priority was for Greg to dig out a path to my bird feeders! Don't want to make those birdys angry....

The sun is just starting to peek out. The lake has a light covering of snow on it. It's going to be a beautiful day.

I don't see any of my neighbors out on their decks. Too bad. I was going to wave to them while wearing my silly cat pajamas....

Well here's a nice visitor....the downy woodpecker. Let's invite him in for a nice cup of hot chocolate. We won't mention the fight he had earlier with the nuthatch....
