Saturday’s Critters

When we took a quick overnight trip to La Conner for an anniversary celebration on December 11th-12th we happened upon this field of Snow Geese in the Skagit Valley. They really were a noisy flock!

I’ll be linking up with Eileen for Saturday’s Critters. Thank you, Eileen, for being such a gracious hostess.

The last Saturday of 2017 and I’m recovering from boxing up all the Christmas decor and putting it back in the attic and vacuuming up all the needles from the tree.  Saturday evening our daughter and son-in-law will be hosting a small dinner party here to celebrate Katie’s birthday. Are your Christmas decorations still up? Will you be going out for New Year’s Eve celebrations? We’ll be fast asleep before the ball drops on New Year’s Eve.

About Ellen am a wife, mother, baba (grandmother) and a loyal friend. Jesus is my King and my hope is in my future with Him.

  1. Lovely photos Ellen. Our decorations stay up til twelfth night. New Years dinner here with all the family. And silly games too. Happy New Year to you and yours. B x

  2. How neat to see those beautiful creatures and so many of them together.

    I plan to take my decorations down on the 1st, so I’m still enjoying them.

    Have a wonderful 2018 ~ FlowerLady

  3. Hello Ellen, it is cool seeing the large flocks of Snow Geese. They are so pretty and are an awesome sight to see. I am taking my decorations down on the 1st. Thanks so much for linking up and sharing your post. I appreciate all your visits and comments on my blog in 2017. I wish you and yours all the best in 2018, Happy New Year. Have a happy weekend!

  4. HI Ellen! Your header is beautiful as well as your shots of the snow geese. I tend to linger a bit before I start cleaning up. But am gearing up for it.. Our home is small and we keep it simple, so not a big deal. We may watch New Year’s Eve activity on television, but not a priority to stay up. I’ll go with what my body tells me.. Lol!

  5. My goodness! I have never seen such a large gathering of geese. I can imagine they were making quite a racket. We won’t take our decorations down until after January 5, when the kids return to college (I want to pretend their visit is not rapidly coming to an end). Since the kids are both working New Year’s eve, my hubby and I have decided to go to the events at the Ski Resort, which include a rail jam, a torchlight parade and fireworks, followed by live music. Should be fun but we won’t be out late since we are all going skiing New Years’ Day. Have a Happy New Year, my friend!

  6. Those geese are gorgeous! And there’s so many of them! I had no idea they flocked to La Conner. Is that a yearly migration, do you know? I have all my decorations down but the tree is still up. My granddaughter is spending the night New Years Eve so her mom (my daughter) can go out with friends. Happy New Year!
