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
Presenting....

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!

Thank you Gail. Of course I'm biased, so it's nice to receive your comment! :-)

Looks like you all had a good time. I love the ice sculptures (and any excuse to use a chainsaw!)... which reminds me, I have to check the dates for a local ice sculpture display...

Garden Faerie, We had a great time! Thanks for visiting. The ice sculptures were really fun to watch being made. I'd like to hear what happens in Your area!
