Boy, what a beautiful valley we live in! Driving around, it seems like a lot of our community members are really getting into the holiday spirit. The Christmas lights look so beautiful against the new snowfall! While Earl Manzur may have bragging rights again for the largest real snowman; Chad Feller's inflatable snowman may actually be larger (a.m. -- after melt.) Masdens and Gimlins both have giant Santas to welcome visitors to their homes, and it's fun to see Rudolph and Santa trying to get down the chimney at Hendersons. Some snow angels were spotted at the end of Ladiges Road. After some super-sleuthing, we think Lois and Martha may have created them. Anyway, thanks to everyone who takes the time to decorate for Christmas! Your efforts create a winter wonderland that everyone can enjoy!
