Christmas Celebration #2

Our daughter, son-in-law and their family were here this weekend!
We celebrated "Christmas" a little late.

Crazy little tree this year!
(My bird tree!) ;-)

After opening our gifts (except for the puppet theater), we had a little dinner and headed downtown for the "First Friday Art Walk." The organizers are so inventive! This is a chainsaw, ice artist from Minnesota, hard at work. He's using flat blocks of ice to create a city-scape.
We think we live in Christmas City!
(this is the town square)
The carousel
Puppet Theater

Making angel ornaments...
Everyone gets involved!
"You Must pay the rent,
I Can't pay the rent,
You Must pay the rent,
I Can't pay the rent,
... I'LL pay the rent!
My Hero!"
A great time was had by all!
There was a day of ice-fishing with grandpa and dad
(with a ride the sled on the pond pulled by a friend).

Grandpa and dad put together two bluebird houses
with the grandchildren while
Grandma and mom ran to the grocery store.

You never know what might happen around here!
