. . . To Grandmother's House We Go!! by Lori Deiter

. . . To Grandmother's House We Go!! by 

We’ll be heading to “Grandomther’s House” for Christimas Dinner. This is a photo of the home where I grew up, nestled at the base of Peter’s Mountain…. taken from my back door!!! Yes, my Mom’s house is just across the field from where I live now!! Many years ago, a whitetail deer ran across the field when she was walking to our house on Christmas Eve, so it’s a tradition to warn her not to get run over by a Reindeer walking home from our house Christmas Eve!! HA! {that’s true}

The morning sky in this photo is natural – taken at dawn – the foreground was combined with a longer exposure because it was still pretty dark outside.

Taken 12/20/09, Clarks Valley, Pennsylvania

    Lovely shot Lori. Must be great to have snow at christmas. Over here it’s normally scorching hot & pools & beaches are popular. Such a contrast.

  • Thank you Michael… I just couldn’t enjoy Christmas without the cold weather and SNOW!! But…. and nice warm beach doesn’t sound bad!!! Merry Christmas!!!

    How gorgeous a view. Don’t forget to slip on your red cape with hood and carry your gifts in a basket. As you dance through the snow watch out for the deer and other wild life the may linger behind the trees. Happy Holidays and Good Health to you and yours….Jules

  • Thank you so much Jules…. I’ll watch out for bears and wolves….hmmmm… we actually do have a couple bears around here!
