Merry Christmas to all !

I want to take this opportunity to wish each and everyone a very Merry Christmas and may the joys of the season fill your heart with the love that surrounds you . I hope you have the opportunity to spend time with your family and friends . I am super excited this year as  we will have our oldest son Robert and his family for the Holidays , they won't be here on Christmas day but a few days later due to work committments and I hope they have a safe journey , it is a long drive . This will be the first time in nine years since we have had this special time together so I am thrilled !!
Yesterday we had an ice storm, it was not a real pleasant day and here is a photo I took early this morning of our poor bird feeders .

 As you can see we have plenty of snow on the ground although the rain we had did pack that down . Each winter we take a fir tree and put it on the deck for the birds , this way they have some shelter as they feed , you can see a nyger seed feeder in the tree and that is usually filled with the Gold Finch . There are icicles hanging from the feeders and the tree is just laden with ice . Bill did go out and fill the feeders after this photo was taken . More rain in the forecast for today and it is an ice rink in our yard so this gal will be staying inside where I can't slip ;-) 
 Again a very merry Christmas to all and all the best of the season , I will not likely get back here until after the holidays so take care ,stay safe and warm and as always thanks for stopping by .
 hugs Sheila

  3. Merry Christmas to you and your family! Have a wonderful visit. What a nice view from your window looking on to the bird feeders. Is that a cardinal bird feeder that I saw?
    Stay safe and warm.

  10. Best idea is to stay inside, Sheila. My husband took a nasty slip and fall on Saturday after the storm passed through here. I have been having fun watching the squirrels skirt around on the icy patio, searching their hiding spots for cached nuts.
