I just like the simple color palattes (even if a lot of grays and browns)…But, assuming you do not want to see a series of swaths of grey trees and blue skies, I aimed for as much festive green as possible…

    I really appreciate the evergreen ferns and conifers at this time of year, otherwise it would seem so bleak.
    Great action shots of Dexie!
    Love the snowflake chandelier and all the pretty lights around your home. ‘Zilla is growing up so fast – she has really sprouted this year.
    Enjoy all the Christmas festivities!
