I  love to get up before the sun and watch the sunrise over the mountains. It is especially pretty this time of the year with our Christmas tree in the window.

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas! May the holiday bring you much peace, love, good health and a little time outside in nature.

This huge Bull Elk was checking out the delicious looking tree with the Christmas lights that my neighbor had just put up outside his home.

Should I or shouldn’t I? That was the question!

I  made pendants for many of the businesses in Estes Park of their  logos this past summer. So I thought it would be fun to make them into ornaments and make a “Christmas Tree” in honor of the businesses in Estes Park.

I thought it came out pretty cute. It’s fun to have a “themed” Christmas tree, don’t you think?

The Holiday Lights And Decorations Are Up In Estes Park!

I love this time of year when everything is decorated for the holidays! Estes Park does an incredible job with their decorations and lights.

If you drive downtown after dusk you can see thousands and thousands of twinkling white lights in every tree in town. It is spectacular! I love to drive through town at this time of year.

And along with the beautiful lights come the old-fashioned Christmas cut-outs that you can see in Bond Park that were hand-painted by Buel Porter. They are very old but a part of the Estes Park tradition! Here is a picture of “Christmas in Bugville!”

The Golden Leaf Gallery In Estes Park Hand-Painted A Group of Four Nesting Dolls As Their October Scarecrow Photo Op

1,528 views

 

The Golden Leaf Gallery on East Elkhorn Avenue in Estes Park really went over the top when they cut out and hand-painted a group of four Nesting Dolls for their October Scarecrow Photo Op. They are just beautiful!

When I stopped in the other day to tell the owner that they were just exquisite, Craig said that many people and families were stopping by and enjoying the photo op. The stand-up dolls are a work of art. Wow! What an incredible photo op…for one or two people…or a whole family! They even have the little piece of black fabric in the back so the light won’t shine in.

If you’re looking for a unique Christmas present, they have many different kinds of nesting dolls to choose from!

Thank You, Wapiti Restaurant In Estes Park, For A Delicious Free Christmas Dinner

959 views

 

Once again the Wapiti Restaurant and Pub in Estes Park celebrated Christmas by offering a free Christmas dinner to anyone who wanted to come. Phil and I stopped by about 2:30 and  they had already served over 210 free meals. This had already surpassed last year’s total.

Christmas dinner was served from 12:00 -4:00 pm by the owners of The Wapiti, Tory and Berenice, along with friends, relatives and many volunteers. Dinner was delicious! We feasted on turkey, stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy, cranberry sauce, green beans, sweet potatoes and bread. Dessert was either vanilla or chocolate cake with yummy frosting. Drinks were iced tea, water, lemonade or coffee. Everything really hit the spot!

It such a wonderful thing that The Wapiti Restaurant does each Christmas…opening up their restaurant to people who need or just want a place to have a special Christmas dinner. The meal is free however, you can leave a donation to Crossroads if you wish. Last year they donated over $2000 to Crossroads from their Christmas donations.

Thank you, Tory and Berenice and all of the volunteers at the Wapiti for making our Christmas dinner very special. We had a great time!
