Mr. Christmas and the Lighted Stocking Cap

Susan, Mr. Christmas and moi.

The old boy himself.

Yesterday, it was Mr. Christmas’ turn. Susan and I hiked Roaring Run in Botetourt County with the idea of decorating a tree for the holiday and doing a little celebrating. It’s a good idea, but we didn’t take traditional decorations.

Instead, we improvised and came up with a pretty dang good alternative: Mr. Christmas.

I had brought an extra sweatshirt (red) and Susan had another scarf, some ribbon, a pair of red gloves and a stocking cap with a string of lights attached. They were perfect.

We found a tree that had been cut off about three feet off the ground and I set to decorating it while Susan shot photos. Here’s the result.

(Oh, we do have a good time.)

Working on Mr. Santa.

Putting on the gloves.

Yeh, we do kinda look alike, don’t we?

Mr. Santa ponders a swim.
