My 'Ugly' Christmas Decoration!

We all have one, right?

One that others (like husbands) wonder why in the world a particular (perhaps ugly) Christmas decoration is even still around.

Well, here is my beloved, maybe somewhat 'ugly' Christmas decoration:

Truthfully I don't think my snowman is that ugly?

Do you?

He does have a cute-ish face....

Maybe he does looks a little "Tim Burton-ish, Nightmare Before Christmas"?


I won him at a dinner auction several years ago.

I have no idea what my bid was.....

But still, I.won.him.

Last year, I put him on my front porch.  My husband was concerned that my snowman would frighten the neighbors, mail man, UPS guy, stray dogs....


He is quirky.

He is smiling.

I like different.

(my snowman that is, I am totally NOT referring to my husband. ha!)

This year I kept him inside....for his own safety.  Wasn't sure if the husband would 'accidentally' move my snowman.....ummm, let's say to the garbage.

Besides, my Littles like him

And they make Mr. Snowman, Tim Burton-ish, Nightmare Before Christmas, look very sweet and not ugly.

Mr. Snowman, well, you're a keeper!

Just had to.....

I love this picture of my Littles.....

They are not always this sweet and affectionate towards each other.

When they are?

It just too sweet.

It melts this momma's heart.

Sunday Snapshot {seven years old}


How can this little girl of mine already be seven?

Why does it seem as though the years just keep going by more quickly than ever?

This year Shea really, really wanted to have a 'kid' party....

We don't usually have a lot of 'kid' parties, but this year I said yes.  :)

We had a pottery party (say that 10 times fast!) at our local clay/art studio.

Fun was had by all! (and it was productive).


Pottery selection.


Lots of paint brushes!

Intense painting.

 Some {yummy} cake.

 All add up to one happy girl and one terrific birthday celebration and one really cute unicorn! (to be picked up next week)

Happy Birthday, my precious Shea!

I love you more than words can say!!!!

Join in some other Sunday Snapshot fun here:

Sunday Snapshot {Sledding}

Today turned out to be a great day for sledding.

This is 'Dad' territory.

I take pictures and provide the hot chocolate.

They do the outside stuff!

And they have a blast!

Going down the hill (in our backyard).

Climbing back up the hill....


All better!

Up the hill again....

Even the dog gets in to the action.

Look at Bretta go!!

Up and down....


 (or being sassy)

A good day had by all!

Join in the 'Sunday Snapshot' fun!!
