Pictures of Christmas Day

Christmas Day my hubby and a good friend and I went to Mt. Rainer to play in the snow. 
We only got to go up to about 3700 feet, the road was closed to go up to Paradise due to the snowfall.
At Longmire was about 12 -14 inches or so, enough to take a lovely winter walk and play.
Am Weihnachts Tag fuhren mien Mann und iene gute Freundin und ich zum Rainier Berg um im Schnee zu spielen.
Wir koennten nur hoch bis zu Longmire, ungafaehr 1200 Meter hoch, die Strasse zu Paradies war geschlossen wegen dem vielen Schnee. Bei Longmire hatten wir zwischen 25-30 cm, genug fuer den Spaziergang und im weisen Puder zu spielen. 

At the trail of shadows.

Walking along Nisqually river, which is under all that snow. 

Some one made a snowman, so we dressed him up. My friend gave him bushy eye brows,
 and I lend him my orange scarf.

Somewhere behind these trees is where the mountain is, but he was hiding on Christmas Day.
Irgendwo hinter den Bauemen befindet sich der Berggipfel, aber er hat sich nicht gezeigt am Weihnachts Tag.

How many Christmas Trees in the house is to many?

I have this affection for Christmas Trees. My husband thinks I am slightly of my rocker, but I am okay with that. I can't help myself , I think they are great.
I made this one in 1994 while living in Alaska.
 It is now in the kitchen window. 

This one is a hanging tree in the kitchen. 
It does double duty as a kitchen night light.

This is our big tree, in the window between the kitchen and living room. This is also the one that Santa leaves my presents, since it is the biggest and therefore the most room for the lovely presents. 

On the fireplace mantle.

A red tree for kitty, also on the mantle. 

One for the hallway, with lights and some old German ornaments. 

My wonderful husband got me this one in Germany
 at the one of Weihnachts Market. 

I rescued this one from a second hand shop also in Germany. 

My small tree , I light it up when I have breakfast.

My hand made tree. 

My sister gave me this one.

My new tree , it is a Charlie Brown tree. 
I got it for Santa Claus day. 

My computer needed a tree. 

My wonderful friend Jeri gave me this one her Dad made .
 It is in my sewing room. 

So, don't you agree hat one can never have enough Christmas Trees in the home. I have plenty of room for a few more trees. In fact my refrigerator needs one, and my bathroom. I have my eye on a red tinsel one with lights and glass balls.

Last Sunday my hubby and I took this steam Engine train from Elbe to Mineral in Washington. It goes along the mountain ( MT. Rainer ) , and it is very slow. It was the Santa express, and filled with families with young children that got to go and see Santa. Their faces as they walked passed us were priceless, full of expectations and joy. 
Let's see if Frauke and Susanne have a picture for you.
