Merry Christmas

Linking up with Skywatch Friday  and Good Fences  


Wishing all my blogging friends that celebrate a very Merry Christmas!!
May your home be filled with the joy of the Christmas season. I wish you a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year.


Sorry, I keep using my Christmas ball Cardinal.  He is cute though!


I hope everyone is enjoying their Christmas Day. I had this post ready to go for Tex's Good Fences and for my Skywatch Friday post.. Some archived shots taken from our ride to my son's house and to my sister's place.. We take the back roads to Pennsylvania and enjoy the farmland and animals along the way..My sister will be having Christmas dinner at her place..lots of yummy food and baby Neill will be there..  Yea!


I just love these cute donkeys.. The are adorable, I want to stop and look at them every time I go by.


Some Longhorn cattle and a fence scene of course, lol!


Taking the back road to Pennsylvania we pass this farm with the Longhorn cattle. They are huge..


Another shot of the donkeys and fence... IF I had a farm I would want some of these donkeys..and alpacas and some chickens..maybe a horse or two..I need to win the lottery...



For my Skywatch Friday I have a sunrise seen from my deck looking into the woods next to my house.. The colors were amazing, as if the woods were on fire..



This shot above was the sunset seen from my deck..


This moon shot was taken from my backyard on December 7..I do not think I posted this shot yet.. Thanks for stopping by and for the nice comments..


 To see more pretty skies from around the world please visit  Skywatch Friday
and check for more fence shots at Tex's Good Fences


Thanks to Theresa @ The Run*A*Round Ranch for hosting Good Fences and thanks to Sylvia, Yogi  and Sandy for hosting Skywatch Friday.   I wish everyone a safe and happy weekend.
