Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of my lovely blogger friends. I hope the Holidays are treating everyone well.

It's a low-key Christmas around here....

Kinda figure Santa has given me everything I wanted....A new patio, new lighting in the kitchen...and a new barn. It's kinda hard to top that. ;-)

The weather has been holding up remarkably well. Outside of a couple of skiffs of snow....we have been dry and are holding steady with temperatures in the 40*'s most days. Doesn't do much to promote the 'Christmas Spirit', but sure makes doing chores and riding a lot more enjoyable. :-)

It's hard not to get a bit of the Holiday Spirit feeling when you enter the pavillon at the Bellagio though. It's one of my favorite places to visit during the NFR because every year is a different theme. I thought this year's was outstanding...
The penguins were singing carols, flapping their wings and moving their heads. The little guys in front were skating in circles. Pretty cute stuff.

The star of Bethlehem hung high above...
Known for it's water shows, this year the Bellagio brought some of it inside...
The water jets pulsated with the music (above) and formed perfect arches over the walkway (below)...
Like almost everyone else, I had to touch the water stream to see if it was 'real' or encased in a tube. LOL...It was real.

I think the Polar Bears were my favorite though...


All of the bears were made with carnations. It was almost like being at the Rose Bowl Parade and seeing the floats up close and personal.

Wishing all of you the very best holiday. Much Love!! BEC

A very happy Christmas to you too. Sometimes low key ones are the best. We got a little bit of snow this morning- less than an inch but enough to call it a white Christmas.

I love those Belagio bears. They have been in the last 3 yrs display. Wish we could have seen the penguin display; thanks so much for the pictures.

Merry Christmas to all.
