My Snowman Tree....

My snowman tree is up and ready to
greet visitors to our home.....

I have always wanted a "snowman tree" so two years ago I bought a small artificial tree on clearance after Christmas (for a whole $5!) and since then it has been decorated in honor of my snowmen. :)





I don't know why I have such an affection for snowmen. I couldn't even tell you when it began. I guess that snowmen seem to be the epitome of winter and I LOVE winter! Each year I hope that my snowmen will inspire Mother Nature to shower us with white fluff and although that rarely happens here in Kentucky, we have HOPE! Every year our hope is renewed with winter's arrival! Let's wait and see what happens this year. To winter I say, "Come on and stay a while!" :)


Now I have to get the kids busy to make paper snowflakes for the window....just a touch more "inspiration" might be just what Mother Nature needs. :)








The snowman tree stays up well into January....pretty much until all hope for a good snow is gone. Maybe this year I'll keep it up until February... :)

Don't be jealous, Loretta, but there is a call for lots of snow here in AZ this weekend!....at elevations of 5000 and above, but still.........
