Let it Snow! Did I make it in time?

I know, I know...isn't this amazing?  I REALLY did take this photo, and SOMEONE added snow to it!  It was a cold and drizzly day in Fort Worth, and we were over on the west side, trying to get our Christmas shopping done, when what to my wondering eyes did appear!!!  What a line-up!  These were some of the most beautiful trees I've ever seen, just waiting for the right person (with a large wallet, I might add) to come along and take them home.

This is the spot where the gorgeous trees are in Fort Worth, TX, if anyone is in dire straits for the prettiest tree on the block!

The nativity scene in front of St. George Catholic Church in Fort Worth. They have this every Christmas, and I just love it!  This is the first time I have photographed the scene!

Well, time is flying...December is almost gone now,  the New Year is beating on it's back door.  I have taken some plants in for the winter, and, they are faring well.  Begonias in bloom, and the fern is holding its own.  Outside, the vinca major and violets are standing up to the cold arctic blasts we've experienced thus far this winter.  

I hope you all are well and happy during this holiday season,.  We have participated in two food drives for the needy in the past month, from home, and at work.  And, yet, I know it's never enough!  There are so many in need, and, I feel guilty when I'm eating my delicious foods and salads, knowing that some child would truly enjoy a plate of spaghetti or a home grilled burger.  So, I do as much as I can during these food drives.  And, food drives are just a drop in the bucket of needs in our country-shelter, clothing and medical assistance are among some of the greatest needs.  

Christmas is only one day in a year filled with over 300 days of needs to millions of people.  If I MUST make a New Year's resolution, and, if you know 'what's her name' over at KardKornerKrib, then you know she doesn't make New Year's resolutions!  BUT!  Ms. Krib has agreed to make this one resolution, to do more  for the needy and less fortunate in the year 2014! 

*** Thank you for stopping by.  We're all so busy with the holidays...I don't even have a meal planned yet!  But, I will get there!  Soups on, y'all!  Please stop in and say hello if you get the chance.  I love hearing from you, and appreciate all smiles and laughter!  Be safe this Christmas season, and, have fun!

*** P.S. If you are reading this via email, you may not get to see the spectacular snow animations added to my photo!  So, you should call up my blog for the best effects!

And, by the way, Ms.Asta over at KardKornerKrib recently had a birthday...
 (she doesn't want you to know her age)!
 Cindy from work took a couple of flicks of the Birthday Girl!

Google Chrome for adding the snow
feature to my Christmas trees!

So, y'all better watch out, you better not shout, 
Cause me in my kerchief, and, pa in his cap,
Have just settled down for a long winter's nap!
Merry Christmas to you all from,MyTexasGardens!
