Is this photo worthy?

How sweet my son Jack was today when I picked him up from school.  He had a wrapped gift in his hand and he wanted me to open it just that moment. I of course was driving and had to wait til we arrived back home.  With much anticipation I tore it open and I was so tickled at what he had made for me.  He asked did I do good Mom? Do you love it? Let's go find a good place on the tree.  So once we did we both gazed at it a second, and he turned and asked is this photo worthy Mom for your blog?  WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL.....what can I say? of course it is!!!!! The fact that it is a snowman, my favorite, I thought I would share my snowmen on the front porch as well.
There is my special gift from Jack, I love it!

Love these big ole stockings from the Dollar tree, they even have hooks for the chairs

Last year holiday pillow with a picture of me, Mom, sis and Jack, oh and Lucy too!

I also received my early Christmas present from my dear husband, a NEW camera! I will be having fun playing now.
Oh and guess what? We are predicted for some bad weather here in the South. It is bitter bitter cold and we are supposed to get an ice storm!
My bird bath is starting to freeze over OH wait, I was not finished, had some more photos to share.....

 Thanks everyone for stopping over. I know how busy we all are this time of year. I have enjoyed everyone Holiday homes so much. There is so much to see and to be inspired by!

Awww, how sweet "is it blog worthy?" ... I'd say, it's wonderful.
I love your porch too, your pictures look great, what kind of camera did you get, and how do you get the snow effect on the photos?

Oh, the gift from your son is so special and so precious. Tell him he REALLY did good. It is definitely photo worthy, and should have a very special place on the tree. Doesn't it just melt your heart!!! Your front door is gorgeous also, and I love your snowmen. Very pretty. Hugs, Marty

Oh bless him! It is sooo photo worthy! Tell him it is not only photo worthy today but will only be even more photo worthy every year from here on out! I love it! So sweet! I am hoping we do get some inclement weather (haaha) but I'm not very hopeful. I would prefer some snow over ice though. It sure was cold today, so maybe!

Hi Debbie Dear! Yes, ma'am! You tell Jack his ornament he made for you is definitely blog worthy and then some! How sweet and precious. I'm a little teary eyed as I think of when my son was little and would make me special little presents. sniff sniff.
Your porch is gorgeous and congratulations on your new camera. I want one too but we've said we'll go easy for Christmas this year since Mr. Precious retired about a year ago. I'll keep on dropping hints though. :)
Take care sweet friend and be a sweetie,

Hee hee, is there ANYTHING better than children? Heck no! And when they tentatively ask if what they did was special enough for you to show off? Give that little man a zerbert right on the neck! His ornament fits right in with all of your sumptuous sparkling decor. He's definitely your son.

Dear Jack,

It's mega, mambo photo worthy. Your gift to your mom isn't just a work of art created by your eyes and hands, it's a work of love created by your heart. No gift could ever, in any way, be finer.

Debbie, you tell that sweet young man, I was gonna say baby, but he may read this. Well, you tell him his snowman is more than photo worthy. It is award worthy!! Not only is his snowman unique and expertly executed but his choice of recipients is also very worthy. It is always smart to be nice to Mom and especially this close to Christmas.
Merry Christmas, Ginger
