Merry Christmas to all my wonderful friends and blog buddies!  
This post will be a little different...first of all...there are three posts and I have to admit that is because blogger gives me fits when it comes to adding 8 or more pictures.  I think I have tried all the tricks to stop that from happening but so far no luck reversing that problem...
so...("SHE," thought, (she being ME) I will fix Mr. Blogger, it HAS TO BE A MR., RIGHT?
but I digress...that is a whole new post!
Anyway, if you are truly my friends you will have to set aside some time (sorry about the busy season, etc.) and, well, get a cup of coffee. put your feet up and (continue reading) as some of those fancy blogs say...  

This is where I am fortunate enough to live...A lovely 
Retirement Community for Active Adults.  This is the Front Entrance and it is a shame it was so cloudy on that day.  In our area we average only about less than 50 days a year of 
not sunny...Of course if it rains all winter that changes.
(Sorry for the yield sign, but I wanted to show you the pansies and daisy ground cover that grows all winter.)  Are we lucky or what!

We have waterfalls on either side of the main entrance and it is so pretty.

This is a picture of our main lodge not including the Fitness Center
where some of us try to "keep fit."

And this is how you get into it...

Our beautiful Christmas Tree...but I am sure you figured that out!  DUH!

There is also a lovely fireplace right to the right of the tree but "someone" seems to have "deleted" that picture...can't say who that was, but let's just say, "I am the only one who uses this computer...must have been one of the gremlins who love to mess me up."

My house didn't get much more than my Feather Tree up..thus no Christmas picture...
I am leaving for Minnesota 
(Brrrrr) and Iowa tomorrow morning and will return early in January, So
and now...grab your coffee and read on...there are two more posts that go with this one
so have fun my lovelies, leave me a comment if you can
 and I will see you next year!


AND everyone was prettier than the last... Enjoy!

This one was all done in soft colors...pinks, whites,  pale greens to match her room colors!

Here we see a cute tree done up in red checked ribbon, some Hand painted "Father Christmas's and a lovely hand painted plate.  This homeowner is an artist in many forms.

This "Frosted" tree had tons of Teddy Bears...looked like they were residing on a "Snow-y" Mountain!  Very cute!  

This one took your breath was huge...around 20 feet!

And yes, we even decorate our bathrooms in Sun City!

Here is a beautiful "Angel Tree."

This tree was located just inside the front doors and it must of had hundreds of ornaments.
A real feast for the could stand there for hours and still see something new!

Here we have Santa IRONING to get ready...

And here  he was checking out the "Good Little Boys and Girls List"
(He snored, too!) 

This is a beautiful table setting...full of sparkle and charm!

And here we have the Dept. 56 North Pole so charmingly displayed

A "Gingerbread Scene" under a "Gingerbread Tree." 
Absolutely darling!

And another "Gingerbread House"...See all those "Calories!"

And last but not least, "See the Tumbling Snowmen in the guest bath shower.!

Well, I hope  you liked our Sun City House Tour all put together by Seniors 
And I am sure a couple of kids and grandkiddos helped out.

I want to thank all my followers (Oh my gosh, I am getting close to 100!  Who Knew!) and also those who leave comments and make me a "happy blogger!"
Please come back often and tell me what you like
or even what you don't and I will try to FIX it!

Happy Holidays to all and see you in the new year!
