It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

I didn't think the Missouri Star Christmas Village pieces would be as big as they are.  Not going to have room to carry them all year. 

Christmas is my splurge, on space anyway. I have one tub under the bed for storing decor and also limited space for displaying. Maybe 2 or 3 small things for major holidays, except Christmas. 

Josh made us dancing name Ornaments years ago.

Grandma and Grandpa Ornaments from Toni BK (before kids, or at least before 4 kids).

I have a miniature tree in the "living room"...

...and in the bedroom. 

I have every year of Hallmark's collectible dog ornaments. The 4 I've collected since we started traveling. 

Pat decorated the outside for me. 

Of course it's not all fun and games.  Pat spent Friday washing the RV, Saturday and Sunday waxing (I helped on Sunday). I even got most of the outside windows washed. Wanted to be done before the worst of the cold weather hits. 

Pat cutting more reflectix to put in the windows to get ready for the Polar Vortex headed this way. 

Keep in mind that the normal daytime temperature right now is 70°. Friday night was down to 32°, where it stays until next weekend. Saturday's high was close to 60° and nice, although that drops everyday. Next weekend we have 3 nights with the temperatures between 18-21° and daytime temperatures in the 30's. I know we are up north in the panhandle, but really?

Advent Calendar Day 17 (this has gone on too long): Handmade Ornaments a Macabeo from Spain, Gouda with Paprika, and a Hazlenut Chocolate.

Advent Calendar Day 18: Lovely Branches a Merlot from the Thracian Lowlands Protected Geographical Indication in Bulgaria, Aged Cheddar, Leaf Dark a Dark Chocolate Ganache. We both liked the wine, I really liked the Cheddar, and well, can Chocolate ever be bad? Pat's given up on the chocolate so I don't have to share it anymore.
Where are the Piepers now? Bonifay, FL
