Ready for Christmas

Looks like the cardinals are ready! They are wearing red and green.

The horses are dressed brightly for the holiday.

I guess the deer are ready. As long as this one isn't called to pull a sleigh, he doesn't need to worry.

The cute little dog has his Christmas sweater, like the woman holding him does.

The male mallards have Christmas-green colors brightening their heads.

Flash is ready to sleep until Santa arrives.

I'm almost ready. Marie arrived yesterday and we had a nice day today. Here she's enjoying peanut soup at the Southern Kitchen in New Market.

Happy holidays to you and yours!
