Wow. I can't believe December 25 is almost here and 2017 is almost over. It has been a good year filled with blessings for us.
I was out west visiting our daughter and family (3 little grandsons) for 10 days this month and got to help out with the household while all three boys were sick with terrible colds. You know how it is with little ones being in school and the germs keep getting passed around. We also got some Christmas in with picking out and decorating their tree. Murray was working in Winnipeg and joined us for a few days at the end of his time there. He's looking forward to some time off over Christmas and New Year's before he heads out to "Winterpeg" again. I say "Winterpeg" as it's 'affectionately' known for its bitter cold prairie wind and temperatures in the wintertime.
Look at those dear little faces.
The deer have been enjoying digging in the snow for food which is, so far, easy to get at. It will be a hard winter for them.
While we were away our first snows came and blanketed the landscape and we arrived home to a winter wonderland. Strangely, Calgary was experiencing unusually mild temperatures well above freezing while I was there and their snow was all gone. They did get a storm yesterday and will have a white Christmas though....and so will we!
Winter's lengthening days and low sun make for interesting shadows on the landscape.

I hope you enjoy some cozy days over the next week or so as we celebrate the season.
I wish you all the joys and blessings of the season as we celebrate the birth of a Saviour.
Happy New Year!
