Christmas in the Desert!

It’s been an incredibly wonderful Christmas this year. The weather was a perfect 70 something degrees and the desert ambiance created the perfect holiday! Who says you can’t celebrate the holidays without snow?….

Why would you want a  white Christmas?…Red and green are fine with us!…Naturally festive colors of the desert!

We saw signs of Christmas everywhere…..here and there, even in the air…

And in the Jair(y)!

Hope you Javelina Merry Christmas!

Winter Glow

Todd’s Backyard is starting look a little different as Christmas approaches and winter sets in. Surprisingly to some, it’s very festive even before we’ve put up our Christmas lights! Of course, we don’t have the snow, (but then, you never know!). However, we do enjoy the winter glow…

The chilly mornings take on a different hue as the moon rises with the sun. At the same time, to the west, the ‘Christmas Tree of Lights’ sits on the hill overlooking Todd’s Backyard, still lit in the early hours of the morning…

The  winter days tend to warm back up, but the evening and morning chill has taken it’s effect on the desert residents. The dirt monkeys, squirrels, lizards and tortoise are burrowed in, hibernating until spring. Some of the other residents have put on their winter coats….

 

And for those of us who are not ready to put on our winter duds…Todd created a cozy hangout where we can enjoy the winter season in the warm glow of  friendship, fine wine, and a toasty fire….ahhhhhhh……

We are so looking forward to the Holidays!
