It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like Christmas...

So, since I live in Las Vegas I'm used to the drab desert landscape during the holiday season.
Any other time I love the desert. It's dry, it's full of color. But then Christmas rolls around and... it's the same as it has been all year.
Until today.What... what is this cold, white stuff falling from the sky? This is mighty peculiar.
Why is it coating our front yard and making everything slippery? What is this demon magic?!It's stuck in my hair! Get it out! Get it out! Oh wait.. this must be that snow stuff that people speak of during this time of year. Odd. I've only ever seen this happen twice before... but why now?I think the snow compliments our decorations perfectly, don't you?
This is our backyard right now. When I saw this, I decided to use the opportunity to my advantage...
I made a mini snowman! With a mini-scarf, chocolate chip eyes, and twigs for hair!This is me with my new boyfriend, Raymond. Isn't he dreamy?I really like my hat, and the layer of white on the ground! And cut me some slack, I had no makeup on.
I thought I'd take this opportunity to show you our Christmas decorations. :) Tiffany's in the shot. She's a little camera whore.Here's our tree all lit up. I think it's nice looking, don't you?Here's some of our decorations on our mantle. On Christmas we're going to light the fireplace. Heck, now with the snow I think we're going to need it. I'm freaking freezing, and it's snowing harder now than it was a few hours ago!
This is our little toy wonderland. That santa at his workdesk has been with us since I was born. When you turn him on, he starts writing on his list and moving around. And the candle flickers. I love it!

I caught Tiffany staring at the snow. She's just as perplexed by it as I am.!


I'll leave you now with two pictures I took in my front yard that I think are very beautiful, at least to me.

Here's a video of what's going on outside!

Lee,

That is the cutest snowman ever! I can't believe you guys got snow. We are experiencing warm weather here which I hate. It's winter and it was near 70 today! I am one of these that enjoys the seasons. It's December... it's NC... it's suppose to be cold.

Loved all of the pictures!
