This cute squirrel has been visiting my backyard lately. It's hard to see but his tummy is pure white as are the backs of his ears. When you see him face on the white fur ringing the pinks of his ears makes him look angelic. Or kinda like a koala bear with a funny nose.

That holiday feeling is starting to creep into my house. The outdoor decorations went up yesterday and today. I bought my crackers when shopping with a friend, have the festive paper napkins, started my cards and have most of the gifts safely hidden in my closet. Perhaps making the Christmas cake was my jump start.
