White Christmas

Hello, Dear Ones! It snowed at Note Songs cottage, did you know that? Well, it did in 2004. It was the first snow Galveston had had that covered the ground in almost 100 years! We had come from our Christmas Eve Service at church and the little snow flurries were coming down. By around 2am the ground was white! Mr. Precious and I hopped out of bed threw on our clothes and drove all over town taking pictures. We weren't the only ones doing that. It was wonderful. And we all woke up to snow on Christmas Day!
I've just about exhausted what I can show you this year for Christmas, so I had to dig deep! :) This is upstairs on the deck. The snow was so beautiful.
Here's my little darling play in the snow and trying to scare off the big dogs. Looks like she was doing a pretty good job! :) She has snow all in her little whiskers. I love that little fuzzy face! :)
I know, I know, you've seen these two pictures of my doors. But I wanted to go to Karen's party - Doors of Welcome.

This is my very favorite Nativity. It's olden to me around twenty years old. I just love this.

Here's another olden piece. This little needlework I made in 1978! I put it out each year.

Oh, Dear Ones, although we love to look at how each of us are decorating our homes at this time of the year, please don't forget the main reason we celebrate!

I'm joining Karen at Some Days Are Diamonds for her Doors of Welcome party

and
Susan at Thoughts From Over the Rainbow for Deck the Halls Tuesdays.

Be a bunch of sweeties,
Shelia ;)

I'll leave you with a little Note Song~

Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful
Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful

Oh, come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
Oh, come ye, oh, come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him
Born the king of angels:
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Highest, most holy,
Light of light eternal,
Born of a virgin,
A mortal he comes;
Son of the Father
Now in flesh appearing!
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels,
Sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
Glory to God
In the highest:
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.


Yea, Lord, we greet thee,
Born this happy morning;
Jesus, to thee be glory given!
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing!
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
Oh, come, let us adore him,
