After Christmas 2012

It's a cold, cold day here in Tulsa.  There are flurries flying outside and I'm soooo thankful that I'm home, inside where it is warm.  Out my back window, I have a whole bunch of cardinals and black-capped chicadees.
This time of year, the male cardinals are such a vibrant red. Just beautiful! 
 I've counted at least 7 males and a bunch of females too.  Although I'm inside where it is warm, I've taken these through the glass with my zoom lens.
 On a snowy theme, look at these adorable snow people that my sweet husband bought me for Christmas!  Don't you just love them?!?  I won't be putting these away when I put Christmas up for the year.
I'm going to add them to my small, but growing collection of snow people.  I found these at a craft fair earlier this month.

 I'm spoiled most of the time, but I really got spoiled this Christmas.
When I'm home, I love my slippers.  I never walk around barefoot or in socks - I *always* wear my slippers.  Douglas bought me three new pairs for Christmas.
 In addition to my snow people and my slippers, he also gave me gift certificates for a massage and facial, to Hobby Lobby, to Starbucks, to Sephora, and to Barnes & Noble!

I thought I would have my decorations down by now but I'm still enjoying looking at all the lights.  Plus, it's so cold that I can't even think about lugging the containers back up into the attic.  Maybe I'll do it over the weekend...
