Jake has posted some lovely soft images for his Christmas theme, and I still have some up my sleeve, even after posting most of my Christmas pics taken around Savannah a couple of days ago. I thought the decorations on this porch were so simple, but very effective.
This house looked so beautiful, that I wanted to run up those steps and ask whether I could come inside and spend Christmas there.
A few days ago, we saw this beautiful crib scene at our shopping centre in Florida.
Our hotel last night had made the reception area and lounge look very Christmassy indeed,
With Christmas carols playing on the TV.
I used to absolutely love these ornaments when I was a child.
I remember trying to get the bottom off one of them, so that I could get the Father Christmas out. 🙂
Here is Tamsyn, our oldest granddaughter, all ready to pull the sleigh for Santa.
We are still en route to New Jersey, and the traffic is horrendous; nose to tail most of the way. We will get there when we get there, I suppose, but I’m impatient and so excited to see all the family again.
I just have one thing left to say to you all on my Christmas post, and it’s this:

These are fabulous pictures. That house looks very inviting! I’ve just arrived after driving in horrendous traffic as well so I’m feeling your pain! We also experienced hail storms along the way.

Tamsyn looks festive and adorable!
Merry Christmas Sylvia!
Thanks so much, Phil. Merry Christmas to you and your whole family, especially your dear Mom. 🙂
A lovely Christmas story about a group of friend who adopted a family of seven who were in desperate need, but would never ask.
Hope your Christmas has been a very happy one, Patricia. 🙂
and you too!!! 🙂
I really enjoyed your Christmas pictures ad. 🙂
Thanks so much, Hopestar. Hugs and love to you. xx
I too would of run up to that house with you, Sylvia, asking to spend the holidays there! Beautiful shots. Have a joyous time with your family!
Thanks so much, Tahira. 🙂
Amazing how the Americans put up so many decorations, it most probably would get stolen here
Enjoy the time with your family when you eventually get there
Yes, I agree with you. 😦 I’m having a great time, but no time for blogging. 😀
Happy hols AD.
Thanks so much, footsy. You too. xx
Arrive safe and soon 🙂

See you finally made it! Hope you got lots of cuddles AD 🙂
Thanks, Tandy. Lots and lots of hugs, kisses and cuddles. 😀
Merry Christmas dear friends
Thanks so much, Margaret. 😀
Beautiful pics, AD, thank you. We had a luncheon party here and one of the ladies had those selfsame antlers, haha!
Thanks, adee. Love those antlers……..on someone else. 🙂
Beautiful shots!!! Fabulous decorations!!!
Thanks so much, RV; glad you enjoyed the photos. 🙂
Interesting pics. The Christmas approach in the cold countries is totally different to here in the hot climate.
Yes it is, and I do enjoy it for a change.
That house in Savannah looks exquisitely done. It’s simple but elegant. I love that kind of decor for Christmas! I so wish I was home right now!! And those snow globes, I used to love them too. Glad you’re enjoying your travels!
Thanks so much, Cathy. Yes, I guess you must get really homesick, especially around Christmas time. Hugs to you.
Yes, Sylvia, it’s hard at Christmas, especially as I had to work on Christmas day!! At least Mike and the boys will arrive on January 1! 🙂
That’s been a long drive. Love your Christmas pictures! You’re the amazing blogger – dedicated, artistic, funny! YOU WIN!!! (Don’t ask me what!! Let’s say the Everything Award!) Merry Christmas – almost AD!!!! Be safe! 🙂 ML 🙂
Thanks so much. I do love to win……anything! 😀 The ‘Everything Award’ is more than I could ever wish for. 🙂 We arrived and to prove it, we’re here. The grandkids almost knocked us over in the rush to get hugs. Have a wonderful Christmas. I probably won’t have much time to blog for the next few days. Too much to do, and people to chat to. Hugs to you, Marsha. xx
Same to you Sylvia. Have fun, and get lots of love and hugs and good cheer.
Lots of love,
Fabulous pictures..love the theme…’)
Thanks, Gerry. 🙂
Wishing you MERRY CHRISTMAS nad HAPPY NEW YEAR 2013 😀
Thanks so much, Della Anna. The same good wishes coming your way too. xx
And a very Merry Christmas to you Sylvia. Lovely pictures as always. That really is a beautiful house, beautifully decorated. I can see why you were attracted to it.
Sorry to hear of your traffic woes but as you say, you’ll get there.
Tamsyn is very like you btw but I’m sure you hear that a lot. Have a wonderful time with your family. 🙂
Thanks, Adrian. We’ll be at our son’s in about half an hour, 🙂
Merry Christmas to you and your family. Have a great time.
Thanks so much, Debra. 🙂
Lovely Christmas decorations. There’s something special about the smell of the greenery in cold Christmas weather.
Thanks, Pussycat. Yes there is, and I’m looking at 3ºC at the moment. 😯
Not much Christmas atmosphere at a sweaty 30+ C!
I can well imagine. Hope you get a nice cool breeze coming through. Merry Christmas to you. xx
I bet them folks would have loved to have you spend Christmas with them!
I think I remember trying to take apart one of them snow globes, too… but it’s been such a long time ago. I’m feeling beyond ancient.
What a nice thing to say, Gunta. They would probably ahve chased me away and told me to go find my own Christmas. 😆
Yes, They seem to be coming back into fashion, but are much fancier than the globes we used to have. I’m also feeling beyond ancient after 8 hours in the car today. 😦
Lovely pictures! merry Christmas and enjoy your time with your family! 🙂
Thanks, Nicole. I’m sure we will. Merry Christmas to you too.
Lovely Christmas pics AD 😉
Have a safe journey!!
Thanks so much. Not far to go now. It’s been a long day.
