It's Beginning to Look alot like Christmas in

Kenosha, Wisconsin

Our Westie, Diamond, in her Christmas Dress

 

Starting December 1st we start seeing the signs all around us that Christmas is in the air around Kenosha, Wisconsin.  Starting at my house, we have to make sure our doggies are decked out for when company comes, and there is no better way than Diamond showing off her Santa Dress.

Amidst the daily routines of my real estate business ... this week has me sneaking in extra time to go about doing a variety of daily errands shopping, stopping off at the bank, buying our Christmas tree and wreath, a stop at the beauty shop for my last minute Nail Manicure and Hair Cut n' Color, a Ladies Tea with a past client, and Ringing the Bell for the Salvation Army with a fellow Realtor.

Johnson Bank 75th & Greenbay                 Ladies Tea at Lord of Life               Ringing the Bell Salvation Army

 

And who could let the season pass without driving around town and seeing how others decorate and celebrate Christmas in Kenosha, Wisconsin.

I am not a big celebrator of the Christmas season like I was as a child but what I do like is the explosion of color and lights.

Joe Pryor We have a street in Kenosha called Christmas Tree Lane and every homeowner decorates their house ALOT ... it's the rage and everyone in town makes it a point to drive by with family and friends.  It's an explosion of color and lights!  You would love it.

Hi, Diana...this is a great entry into the challenge. Thanks for sharing your pictures. You went above and beyond with all of your photos. Diamond looks very pretty in her Santa dress.

Thanks Debbie Laity It was fun and I couldn't just pick two pictures so I went overboard - guess that can be normal for me - but I will say I enjoyed it and hope others who read it do too!  Merry Christmas!

Your Westie is looking quite festive.  We were in Idaho for Thanksgiving and were amazed at how many people were getting their Christmas trees.  Guess everyone's getting into the Christmas spirit.

Pamela Cendejas Yes!  It is that time of year.  We just had 8 to 9 inches of snow and that always makes it really the Feeling of Christmas!  It's really cold outside ... but I'm flying to Arizona to see my son, daughter and grandkids in two days.  Can't wait to get there to the warm weather - even if for only a few days!  Brrrrrr

Diana Dahlberg - I really enjoyed reading your post today and seeing your photographs. My favorite one was your nails! You are definitely not an ordinary Real Estate Agent. I have a feeling you're extraordinary and fun! 

I remember the very first time I visited Kenosha. I was in grade school and my Aunt married a man from Kenosha. In father's car, I felt like we were driving to Europe! But things have sure changed a lot since then! But one thing hasn't changed, the wholesome people who live in Kenosha, WI.

Patricia Feager Thank you so much for this descriptive post.  I've only been to Texas a few times and the area I was seemed to be all freeways -- I was there on a business trip -- so I can't say I got a true representation, however, I do remember all the women seemed like "Southern Belles" -- of course that was almost 30 years ago and I'm sure alot has changed.  Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas!  See you around in the Rain!

It is definitely Christmas now. We drove around tonight and looked at the lights. It didn't seem to me that as many homes are decked out this season. I did see some pretty home decors.

I LOVE this time of year!  I have to agree that there are not as many people decking out their homes this year ... could be the economy has not picked up enough yet ... but I still love the season and the Reason for the Season!

Seeing the lights on others homes allows us all to rise to the spirit of the holiday season. Enjoy this time with family and friends and take a moment free of distractions to enjoy some peace and quiet as well if Diamond will let you.

Right now as I write this response, I'm looking out the window and it just started snowing!  It's beautiful, and it brings my heart peace and quiet as I reflect on the beauty of this season and the reason for the season.  Merry Christmas!

Diana Dahlberg - Your memory and description of the Southern Bells were probably true. I moved here in 1997 and felt like I was living with the movie stars from the set off of Dallas. It was the first time I ever heard of acrylic nails and discovered only people like me from IL swims in swimming pools. Everyone else was busy tanning and didn't want to get their hair wet.

I can't believe I'm just seeing this post but, I LOVE your pictures - and the Westie is ADORABLE!  I've also rung the Salvation Army bell many years with my Rotary group and loved every minute of it!

Laura Cerrano Me Too!  This year has actually started slow compared to previous year.  But I am staying positive and looking forward to the next few weeks. Should be picking up here any day now.  However, my daughter is coming to visit for a couple of days next week and I'm hoping I can give her as much of ME as I can, so if it stays slow another week, I am okay with that.
