Christmas landed next door

Our Neighbour's house
Originally uploaded by Allan & Cheryl.

Our neighbour really gets into decorating for the holidays. He was out most of Sunday getting his Christmas decorations up. Our kids are begging us to decorate our house like that.

That is NOT happening here! We don't need an electric bill like he's going to have! They will just have to make do with enjoying the decorations outdoors. Michael and Melissa can both see them from their tops bunks anyway.

On a related note:

Winter is Here! There was frost this morning when Allan left for work - 1st time scraping the van!

Then after a cold and windy day - it started to snow this evening. Here it is still just flurries and nothing is sticking as it's only about freezing still. But on the way back from orchestra rehearsal in Abbotsford - it was snowing so hard that it looked like the van was going through hyperspace and it WAS sticking. There is a possibilty that we may wake up tomorrow morning to the first snow!

Actually, it was the 3rd morning I've had to scrape the windshield and windows since September. Yesterday morning was the 2nd. I can't nail the date for you of the previous occasion, but there was one prior episode. In any case, it was c-c-c-old!
