Ho Ho Ho Happy Holidays (Macro Monday)

Can you believe how quickly the time is flying?! A few more days and Christmas is upon us!

We added this adorable mouse in a mailbox ornament last year. I love getting Christmas cards in my mailbox, don't you?!

When we got our tree this year we found animal couples. We decided to add a pair to our tree and we chose the alligators. Now that might seem an odd choice, but there were no appropriate Wisconsin animals. There were lions, giraffes, elephants, but no deer, bears or badgers. So we chose the alligators since we were married in south Texas and we were able to see them wild there.

I also found a Santa riding a dragonfly, who could resist such whimsy?

  6. So cute! We didn't put up a tree this year because we're hitting the road to visit family & friends, but every year I buy a special ornament ... I'll have to find one on our trip! I saw the Olympic torch today ... very cool!

  13. Yes, I love getting cards in the mailbox! So adorable! And the alligator is perfect, somehow.

    I've posted a close-up, but not really a macro BUT it's two super-adorable kitties snuggling in round bed. I think you'll like it if you come visit.
