Out in the woods...

There's a 500 acre wood where we walk Griffin and for the past 4 years the other dog walkers and ourselves have taken to decorating a tree near one of the ponds.
Al and Bev, who own Niki, come in with the truck with all the necessary luxuries...
fire pit to keep warm...
camp stove for the coffee...
cookies for our belly's...
...and Baileys just for fun!
We've all brought a few decorations over the years to contribute...
And have made this our own little surprise for others walking in the woods.
Here's the gang...
Looks like every one's enjoying the treats!
Tom getting into the spirit...
Brenda and myself as well!
Al and Bob...our very own giddy elves!
Griffin spreading his Christmas cheer to Bev...
Benji with Nancy and Stu looking for cookie crumbs...
Niki and Griffin TRYING to be still...
That didn't last long!
So here's to hot coffee and a bit of Christmas spirit...
All we need now is a little bit of snow!
