My updated Christmas Village. I try to add a couple of new pieces every year. Also, this time I changed the layout from a square table to a long table.

We finally got a new furnace and central air!! We've lived in this house for 16 years with gravity heat, which is about a 50 year old system. We could never have central air with it, either. This winter is going to be so much warmer. Almost looking forward to it - - - almost. Old on the left. New on the right. What a difference, right?

It's been a busy summer. We had the house and garage trim painted bright white. It looks real good. We also finally had the front sidewalk mudjacked. If you don't know what that is, I'll explain. When the sidewalk sinks down away from the step, they drill holes in the sidewalk and pump grout into the holes. That lifts the sidewalk. Ours was about 3". It was interesting to watch.

Happy Spring! I finally got a bowl large enough so that my solar fountain doesn't spill over the sides. Love it!

My daughter bought me this frog a couple years ago. He used to have a solar light inside. It didn't work for very long. I decided to give him a new paint job. He used to be rusty green.
