Songography - It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas and Scavenger Hunt Sunday

What a busy, busy week...or month I should say.  Still trying to get shopping done, but at least the tree is up and the house is decorated inside and out.  Which is perfect because this weeks SONGOGRAPHY song is...

It's Beginning to Look a lot like Christmas - Version by Michael Buble but there are plenty of other versions out there as well.

We went out today to get my mom's Christmas tree and I spotted these guys in the store, of course they had to come home with me.

 At least I only snapped a picture of this Santa but isn't he cool looking.

Some images from our tree:


 
 
I love all the different ornaments we have on our tree.  These are just a few of them. 

Many of the prompts for SCAVENGER HUNT SUNDAY are Christmas related as well so be sure to keep on looking.

Here are the lists of prompts:  The Weather Today, R is for..., Green, Joy & Drink.

THE WEATHER TODAY - Wow after sub-degree temperatures last week it was almost 50 yesterday and about 42 today.  Great weather for...

Fred the cat to climb a tree without slipping on ice or snow, which has now melted.

R is FOR...I wanted to photograph some Reindeer that use to be at the place where we get our trees but they weren't there this year.  Instead you get....

A Rooster that was in the shop instead.

GREEN:

One of several of my holiday frog figures.  I love the expression on this guys face.

Going out of order here as I want to leave Joy for last.


DRINK:

Nothing like a cup of Peppermint Mocha Coffee with a Candy Cane to swirl in it.

JOY:  My favorite image this week:

The Joy of a child visiting Santa. 

Be sure to stop by Kathy (You'll Shoot Your Eye Out) and Ashley (Ramblings and Photos) for Songography and Scavenger Hunt Sunday.

It truly is beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

  11. Love the car in the tree. Mine like to get up on the roof from a tree close to the house, but like yours, not with the snow up there. Great set of pictures - including the snowman on the motorcycle. Cool.

  14. These are a wonderful holiday collection of photos! I would have brought home the charming dog and cat, too. Love them! And Fred the cat -- he is so handsome. Is he a Maine Coon? And of course, the Santa photo and the joy on Coleen's face -- so precious :)

  19. What a great set for both Songography and SHS! That rooster really caught my eye. And I can see why Joy is your favorite - worthy of being saved (best) for last. PS - I love that bronco-riding Santa in your header. :-)
