Alaina & I were going to surprise the guys and get our Christmas tree today...
It was sunny!
Not too cold~
We have been getting "little trees" the past few years~
So we were confident we could handle the task...
She started working on a final college project...
I've been putting the finishing touches on special order watercolors...
Darkness fell and we still have no tree...
I'm close to chopping off a low-hanging Maple tree limb & adding lights!
On the bright side!
The longer we wait... the longer it will last~
When we finally make it to the tree farm~
Feathered friends &critters with furry tails will be cheering us on!
As I looked out my studio window this afternoon~
Something LARGE caught my eye!
I slowly... quietly... stealth-fully searched for a camera!
This picture was taken through sheer curtains~
Red Tail Hawk!
Isn't it enormous?!
Beautiful friend~ probably caught a glimpse of the Chipmunk
community taking over our backyard.
This last little friend is sharing his heart~
Prayers are with all in Newtown, Connecticut.
