This is "our year" for Jessi and Josh and we met them at the Lights of Christmas at Warm Beach on their way up last night. This is such a magical place, it instantly transports me back to childhood wonder! Lots of photos follow, settle in with a cup of coffee and enjoy!

Then it's time to work on cookies, another tradition of the Bearded One's family. These are labor intensive and involve a day to bake them, a day to glaze them and then another day to frost them. The results are impressive though, and the Bearded One is in his element as he studiously works on the details. I help, but I'm not as patient as he is!

|Then comes the frosting|
|Jessi gave me a sheep cookie cutter last Christmas, how cute are these!|

|This scene was one of my favorites, the sun "sets" in the sky and then the lights of the village in the foreground come on !|
|The Twin Sisters and Mt. Baker from another vantage point|
|And of course, many photo ops of the happy couple!|
|This was another one of my favorites, all of the flowers are made with lights and each one is identified with a plaque!|
|A third favorite, the Polar Express winds its way through this village.|
|And the best for last....the very reason for the season! May He find His way into your heart this year!|
