The Canadian Pacific Holiday Train came to a town nearby early in December.  It was actually not too cold of a night but since it wasn't scheduled to come until 9:00, we didn't think that many people would be there.  Surprisingly, many came to see the train, the lights, the band, and of course Santa.

Every  year when the Christmas decorations and tree are put up, the cats seem to become more active.  I swear they sleep less because there's a tree to chase each other around, there are ornaments to knock off the tree, and there are other random decorations to play with.

The deer have been present in our backyard lately.  When we do see them, it's usually in the morning [except last night when they made a surprise appearance!].  I do wish they'd stick around longer, but they are usually scared off or we have nothing to offer them, so they continue on their way.
