I’m not sure how but I managed to not upload the whole of this house but its pretty spectacular. It’s just a block and a half from mine and they even have speakers playing the Christmas radio station.
It was cool to see the Manger scene in amongst all of the Christmas chaos.
1After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem 2and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him.” Matthew 2:2-3
8 And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. 10 But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. 11 Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 12 This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”
13 Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
14 “Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” Luke 2: 8-14
Then of course some traditional Christmas fun.
Oh and yes I live in Minnesota, and last weekend we got more snow than we got all last year…
So yeah it was a little cold out, but Cooper enjoyed the walk.

That manger is beautiful! Wish we had a place to do that here…might just have to take over the sidewalk in front of the house…there’s plenty of it 🙂 Great capture of it all!
And as for snow, we’re about to get our 3rd dumping of snow this winter — which is probably more snow than we’ve had around Germany since we moved here 9 years ago. So much for global warming! At least ours will melt again in a few weeks since the usual weather here is tons of rain. Have to say, I think I prefer the snow most of the time 🙂
I love that nativity scene! How unique and beautiful – especially at night! It’s so simple and brings the focus back to where it should be.
And your snow – wow! I don’t know that we’ve had more snow this year, but I know that it has certainly been colder here this year than it has been in years! Merry Christmas!
Love that first shot of the manger scene. And WOAH, that’s a lot of SNOW!
Wow, that is a lot of snow! Those are some really nice outdoor lights!
Hey–can you e-mail me the area where that scene is? Since I have my new camera it would be cool to drive over there and get a photo (or 2…or 10….).
Love the Christmas post!
That manger scene is great!
Our mailboxes were buried about that deep last winter. I’m hoping not to have to shovel quite as much this year!
That is a beautiful nativity scene! Lovely. I hope you are enjoying your snow.
You left a comment on my blog teasing about our windchill in the teens… 🙂 I emailed you back about our time spent in Montana. It snowed there ONCE the entire time we were there, and it was horizontal snowfall. The snow fell somewhere west of us, and blew across the prairie until we had about 4 inches. Several days later, it melted a little on a rare warm day, and then we had ICE until March. Ugh!
Cooper looks like a cute fuzzy snowball. 🙂 Great shots!
Awesome nighttime photos of the lights! I love it. I’d love to play around with that a bit.
headed to minnesota next week as my family lives there (i grew up in fargo)—i am sooooooo excited to enjoy the snow!
Love the shots!
What an impressive christmas lights display! I haven’t seen anything even close to that this year.
These are beautiful pictures!
The manger scene looks great. I am originally from Sweden and I miss the snowy winters living in Texas. It is something special about snow and Christmas. Your dog is cute too, my Rhodesian Ridgeback is not so fond of cold weather..
Thanks for following.
