A Beary Merry Christmas

I have come to have a fondness for bears! Since building Grimmwood, where bears are spotted roaming the area, I decided I needed some bear Christmas ornaments.

I found this handsome fella at Cracker Barrelfor 50% off so he is at Grimmwood, making my tree beary pretty.

My sister, Leta, gifted me this one. Since our Daddy worked for the US Forest Service, Smokey has always been a part of our lives.

He faces the window so he can be on the lookout!!

And I saw this one at Cracker Barrel as well and brought him home to Nanaland.

He is admiring the ornaments around him.

Hoping this week before Christmas is going well for all of my Blog Friends. Before we know it the Jolly Old Elf will be making his rounds.

The bears are really cute on your Grimmwood tree. John and I spent our honeymoon in Gatlinburg one hundred years ago (ha) and we collected a lot of bear ornaments too that year.

Have a very BEARY Christmas! How clever to add bears to your collection. I guess they make ornaments of just about everything these days. Makes for a beary interesting tree! Or trees! We have a little one at the ranch. Next year it will be a bigger one!

I have come to love bears, as well. They are such a cozy and charming presence- in the form of an ornament of stuffed animal, anyway :) Maybe not the real thing on a hike, hehe. I love yours and the charm and fun they add to your tree. That is so neat your dad worked for the Forest Service! What an amazing job that must have been. I love Smokey the Bear and that is so neat he has that meaning for you and your family.

Hugs to you & wishing you a joyous week ahead of time with loved ones and every blessing of the season!
