So now, walking the girls this morning, I came across more decorations that went up over the weekend.

Something so odd about seeing penguins on a sixty degree day. Don’t get me wrong.When I lived back in the city, I decorated our first house with snowflakes. See, good Catholic girl that I am, I put up a manger scene.Always did, always will… But as we had no two-legged kids, we opted for seasonal decorations.

Now that we are down here,my decorations are minimal. A fresh wreath on our door, blue and green tinsel around the mailbox-nothing exciting.

I do have holly in my heart, though.
