It's that time of year

One of my favorite pictures of Santa. He's next to the tree in the living room at Pinewood Estate.

Now you are all probaby wondering what this has to do with the title. Well most of you know that Hut and I are Santa's "helpers". And right after Thanksgiving our life is strictly lived as our alter egos. Not complaining though. It's just a really busy time of year. This year we have cut back some due to Hut's health issues earlier this year. Next year Mrs. C plans on cutting back more so that we can spend more time with the family before the grandkids grow up and we miss it, lol.

The pictures I've posted above are from an event we did at Bok Tower for the Pinewood Estate. We just recently recieved the pictures so I wanted to share.

Bok Tower is also known as the singing tower because it is a Carillion Tower. It has giant bells in the tower that are played at numerous times of the day during the year.

The Pinewood Estate is a beautiful home that is located on the property with the tower. Every year at Christmas the Estate is decorated. And every year the them is different. This years theme is movies. So I am hoping to get out there again this year and check it out.

I did do a blog last year about the tower and the estate. I will add the link below in case you would like to check it out.

We were very fortunate to be able to have a tour of the tower and go to the top to the bell level. The tower is not open to the public but since I have connections ( a good friend works there) my whole family was able to enjoy the tour.

Everyone have a wonderful Thanksgiving and remember to thank God for all the blessings in your life.
