A full weekend...

How was your weekend?  We filled every minute. 
We spent less than 24 hours at our A-frame cottage but it was enough to get it a bit more winterized and to bring a few more Christmas decorations.
I had made a new wreath and was eager to hang it on the front door.  
We also added a few more touches to our Nordic themed Christmas tree and then we added greenery and lights to the girl's bedroom loft railing.
On the way home, we stopped off at a sale and grabbed these three elves for $12.
I need another blowmold like a hole in the head, but our Santa will be happy to be reunited with his elves (especially at $4 a piece).
When we got home Saturday, we spent the rest of the day getting our yard cleaned up and prepped for the approaching winter storm.

Sunday was busy, but we did get outside to enjoy the snow.
Our weather forecast includes more snow and unusually cold weather this week, so we've decided to turn on the backyard Christmas lights early.  

Looks like we'll be putting in the ice rink before Thanksgiving this year.  Is it really only mid-November?  Have a great week and safe travels.

The little green guys look so cute up there! The snow's headed this way tonight. Might be a snow day tomorrow which totally messes with my mind. It's November!!!

Beautiful! The A-frame looks so cozy and cute. Can't believe you are dealing with snow already. Loving your elves. I started lighting the white lights on our enclosed porch too. Why not? :)

The Nordic look at the A looks delightful and turning the lights on the back yard to enjoy the snow and reflections puts me in the Christmas Spirit . . .
Delightful . . .
