Christmas Eve & Christmas Day

A quiet Christmas Eve at home.  This little tree was from our pasture.  Just a pine in a vase, but I really liked this tree with simple glass ornaments and a lantern, a few strands of fairy lights. 

The vintage tree topper was found at a church yard sale this summer for $1.

Cookies were baked this morning, boxed and put in the neighbors' mailboxes.

Homemade lasagne is the traditional Christmas Eve meal.  Bob makes the fresh noodles.

We start opening gifts on Christmas Eve and finish on Christmas Day.  A gift from Bob, Chow-Chow leggings perfect for kayaking.  Look closely!

A warm Christmas day, 67 degrees, a soft breeze and a very quiet lake for kayaking.  Even ended up getting sunburn!

Warm enough for turtles to sunbathe.  This log was covered, they all jumped in when they saw me coming, and this was the only brave turtle left that I got a photo of. 

The muscovy duck wanted his photo taken. 

A funky little boathouse getting a facelift.

One of my favorite houses on the lake.

This newly painted boathouse now a lovely blue.

Back in the Town of Tryon, a tree that had fallen is now a carved bear.  Everyone here is an artist, even with a chainsaw!

A warm pink sunset to end the day.
