So Much For A White Christmas!

Remember the pictures I posted last week of all the snow we got? Well, this is all that's left right now :( The past few days, the temps have been up in the high 30's & this morning, as I'm typing this, the temperature outside is 48!!! And it's raining! In Michigan! In December!!!
They're saying that it's supposed to turn back into snow tonight & tomorrow, so hopefully our chances for a white Christmas are still good. Keep your fingers crossed for me :) Yes, I realize those are leaves still on my lawn. Jim & I were waiting for all of them to fall before raking them, but then it snowed on Thanksgiving & well, needless to say, we never got a chance to get to them. So smack me ;)

I need to attempt to get out to a few stores today to pick up some stocking stuffers that I've been procrastinating about getting. Plus I still need to bake cookies, which I'm hoping to get done today as well. Jim's off from work for 11 days.....YAY!!! It's really nice having him home :)
The other day, while the sun was shining, I took some pictures of my living room using different settings on my camera & I'm not sure which one I like better.....the one above or this one:
The second one, I think, shows more of the true colors of the walls, the wood & the couch (except for where the sun is hitting it). But I really like the first one, too. Which one looks better to you? Don't ask me what the settings were because I honestly can't remember now :)
Just a short update for now.....gotta get busy or I'll never get any cookies done! 2 days to go.....are YOU ready? :)

Wow those are great shots. I like them both.

Good luck with your baking. I'm almost finished. The hard stuff is done and just the quick easy stuff is left.

I hope you have a wonderful, Merry Christmas and 2008 is good to you and your family.

I like the second one better Benita, maybe because the colors are so soft and pretty. i don't have a blue thing in my house!
I just wanted to stop by before bed tonight to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!! {hugs}
