Hello out there Blogland neighbors! Well, a short, very short 2 weeks from today is Christmas Day ..... uh oh ..... and, as is par for the course, we're just zipping along here at MBIAJ Headquarters at a SNAIL's PACE !!! So, since I can't show you any significant progress here at Headquarters, I thought I'd share pictures of some of the shops in town all dressed in holiday style. So, fix a nice cup of tea or hot chocolate (or maybe you'd prefer a martini?), kick off your shoes, tell those kids to knock it off and get to bed, and enjoy a brief little tour of Jim Thorpe, Pa all dressed up for Christmas (I won't even talk during your little tour so you can actually have a little peace and quiet .... )
(oops, some of these pictures are hard to see ... so , you can click on them to make them bigger so you can actually see them!)
I took these pictures this past Sunday when it was FREEZING outside .... my fingers were NUMB !! (that's my excuse for lousy photography ... this time .... and I'm sticking to that story!) Anyhow, I was freezing, so I ducked into Mr. Moonbeam's business establishment, The Inn at Jim Thorpe to stand by the fireplace and get warm .... so I took a picture of the Christmas tree in the hotel lobby .....
.....isn't that pretty !!! This is the tree Evan and Mr. Moonbeams picked out and cut down .... and the ladies that work at the Hotel decorated it (which is why it's so pretty and actually DONE ... because yours truly has nothin' to do with it!!)
Well, I hope you enjoyed our brief little holiday tour ....and, as much as I'd like to sit and visit with all of you a little longer, if I don't remove my carcass from in front of this computer and actually get myself in gear, I'll have to keep passing off the hotel Christmas tree as ours!!
Be back soon!
