It's beginning to look a lot like...well, you know...

 Christmas!
 Our (modified) Charlie Brown Tree
 Our First Christmas Together, 1989
 Shirley Sheep in the spirit. Mavis the Penguin being, well, a pillow
 Our pups have their stockings...and our polar bear is towing penguins
 A rather odd sheep comes to investigate the creche
 An angel, a sheep, and a Santa shaped like Kentucky on the pottery shelf
 Our same old door banner...it expresses our hope for y'all!
 Our new Moravian Star...lighting the darkness on our street
 Our old wreath...with some new lights and a weathered cardinal
 Our old flag...it makes us smile
 Colonial boy playing hoop, from Mount Vernon
 A couple of my Grandmother Rhyne's ornaments...about as old as me!
 More old ornaments, with a few newer ones that match.
 They are so fragile, but still lovely
 And of course a few woolly sheep!

 Ta da!
 We did add a few new balls this year
 We're in winter mode up here...can you tell?
 Snow Snow Snow! (decoration across the street)
 "In the bleak midwinter..." (also across the street)
 "Lovely weather for a sleigh ride together..." (also across the street)
 We got nearly 6 inches, all told...the cement pond tells the tale
 The fire pit is likely closed for the season, too
Still, we do enjoy the snow, and it is so pretty!
 Old post out back
 Snow landscape on the A/C
 Frosted shrubbery everywhere!
 Our cairn...the work crew is in full snow removal mode
We enjoy the scenery around us
 And we take care of our birds...Mama Cardinal out back
 Snow bird! Dark-Eyed Junco
 A Song Sparrow!
 And two turtle doves *love*
 Christmas is upon us here in Ohio
As usual, it is a mix of sincere and silly! (across the street)

What a great post!!! I adore Betty Boop in the Charlie Brown tree. So wonderful to see your decorations.

I enjoyed this series of pics!
(Is that per chance a Klaytivity yarn bowl on the shelf?)

A very impressive collection of Christmas ornaments you have. We have a Charlie Brown tree, too. Ha!
