More Christmas Pictures
The great gift of family life is to be intimately acquainted with people you might never even introduce yourself to, had life not done it for you. ~Kendall Hailey,
At the Fortress we are in a race to get our Christmas decorations up before Christmas. I thought I would share with you this morning how far we have come.
Let's start with our outdoor manger scene.
It had one good night and then the blizzard hit and now it needs to be shoveled out.
Here is our Firplace all decorated.
That is done. I think.
This is our manger scene.
If you click on it you will see it is really three manger scenes.
These are our angels watching over the manger.
Finally our tree.
The star leans and looks as if it will fall off.
The ornaments are the leftovers as we can't find the regular one's that we have used for years.
Who knows where we stored them this time.
But the tree has ornaments, bead garland, and all the lights work.
You can cause the tree to light and rotate and the train to run from a wireless remote you can use anywhere in the room.
It is a fun tree.

First she had put a protective spell over Pigeon Falls to keep it from being sent back to the past again. That was the good news. The bad news was that she was gone to California to help a gypsy and wouldn't be back until early next year. It looks like they just have to hope the kid doesn't cast any really weird spells while they wait for her to come back.
Chief Ican said there may be another solution.He said " When I was Chief of a big city police department we had a man who was using magic to kill people as well as steal. Somebody put me in contact with this fellow , Dr. Jim. He was a retired college Professor who was very much into magic. He had even taken some kind of vow to help those that were being hurt by magic. Well, he came and we found out who the man was and he helped us capture him and control the villian's magic powers.
I'll try to contact him. He might think this is interesting enough to come and help us even though we don't have a villan since people could end up getting hurt."
Mrs. Trumble and Eugene both thought that Chief Ican should try to get Dr. Jim to come to Pigeon Falls.
