Yarn Along

Do you see what I see...


the needle is no longer attached to the scarf!
How amazing is that...
proof positive that patience and determination pays off.

It's Done!!
I'm not sure what's up next...
I organized all of my yarn this past week and I have way too much "stash" yarn!

I have not finished my punch needle ornament yet, 
so I think I will finish that before I start a new knitting project.

The house is all decorated for Christmas...
I don't buy a lot of gifts, just for the little ones and a few things for my boys.
My shopping is done,
it's time to wrap the gifts and soon I will be baking cookies.
We have two short trips left, you know one is to Washington, D.C. to see ICE,
and the other to New York Cities Radio City Music Hall
to see the Rocketts. 
Then it is Home for the Holidays with wishes for snow!

Koziar's Christmas Village

It was a 45 minute ride from Hershey.
The unlit winding country road leading in was dark with a lot of hills.
When you come over the last hill on that dark country road...


this is the view, only better...it took my breath away.

The greatest Christmas light display in the U.S.A.






It was freezing cold that night so I had to wear the cute boots!
I'm not completely sure I needed them, 
but I did not feel like fielding all the questions from strangers about why I was wearing flip-flops.













The outdoor display includes themed, enclosed glass buildings.


Twas the Night Before Christmas


Raggedy Ann's Ice Cream Parlor

Christmas in the Country


Reading Railroad


The Wizard of Oz
There were many more that I did not photograph!

There was also a display of vintage sleds of all kinds.








I really enjoyed all of these!


Here we are in the Gingerbread House.


As we left the display, we pulled over to get a few more pictures.


The hubs found information on this wonderful Christmas Village on-line.
Koziar's Christmas Village
Mr. Kozia started this Christmas tradition for his young family 70+ years ago!


The brochure I picked up.

You really have to see it to believe it!!
