It's beginning to look alot like Christmas...part 2

I haven't decorated much outside this year. To be honest, it's just to darn cold! I know I could've done it weeks ago, but I didn't want to!!

We bought the Cement goose in Brown County, IN about 22 years ago. I used to always "dress" it, but kind of got over that! Richard mentioned a couple of months ago that he enjoyed seeing the goose dressed sitting on the deck. So, being the good wife that I am...LOL...I started dressing it again. My mom the the red outfit at a church bazaar many, many years ago. Richard, this is for you!!

I bought the little cement bear, he sits by the back door, at the Shipshewana flea market several years ago.

The white tree, I bought at Goodwill 2 years ago. It was only $5.00. I got the flag there also, $1.50.

We used to hang icicle lights on the front of the house. But, Richard doesn't want to anymore.

Oh Denise, I know how it is about the outside decorating! Joe doesn't want to do it anymore either....It is a big task to undertake and then to take them back down...UGH!
Last year it was just so windy all the outside decorations kept blowing down!
