Our Winter Wonderland

It's hard to believe that the above picture was taken just two weeks ago. I was sunny, a little hot, and believe it or not it was perfect weahter for a Hawaiian shirt and shorts. It kindda makes this a "Sunny Christmas".

Every year mi chica and my daughter decorate the living room for Christmas. Mi chica sets the table and my daughter does the tree, the windows, and wraps the presents. I pretend that I help but truth be told it's all their hard work that shows. Knowing how to delegate is a great part of being a good supervisor, and trust me I know how to delegate.

As promised on a previous post here are the images showing their hard work. This is our very own Winter Wonderland. Oh, and this year, the kids help decorate a lot.

Just so you know, it's 11:45 p.m. Arizona time as I write this and it's hella raining outside and it's windy. It kindda looks and feels like a tropical storm.

Every year mi chica sets the table a little bit different. Last year is was red this year it's gold.

The stockings are hung, all 15 of them. Let me see, Dad, Mom, Son, two daughters, 3 spouses, 7 grandkids. Yeap, it's fifteen alright.

The Christmas Tree is up and blinking, believe it or not there will be more ornaments on it by this weekend.

And one from the outside looking in.

Happy Holidays, Joe Cool!

Here with my Battle of the Blogs vote for you on a cold Thursday morning in the Roxiticus Valley... we still have snow and ice on the ground here from a mini-storm the other day.

Thanks for the sidebar link... I haven't updated it in a while, but I'll be adding you to my Roxiticus Best Blogs ( selection of faves one of these days.

All the best,

Your home is beautiful and even looking through photos it's easy to feel the love inside. It's cold here in AZ this week though; Cold and Wet!

That looks so pretty! I remember the house last year and it looked fantastic, but this year she really outdid herself! She does a wonderful table!

Beautiful photos. And what a lovely photo of you and your wife! You have to wonder what Christmas would be like without family -- and I do know a few people in that situation. Sometimes, kids grow up and grow away and Mom and Dad are left behind. We only have the two, but we are blessed to have them!
