Sledding down at the old shooting range. The Swiss have these all over the place, so I always find myself looking about furtively, hoping that I'm not smack in the line of fire, which would not be unlike me!




The Russian and our sweet strawberry darling...



...take to the slopes!



We walked home in a cluster as the evening grew dark, snow freeze on our local daily read and Christmas Town glowing in quaint splendour.



The Abominable Snow Man would make this picture so much more complete!

The photo of the church does make me think of those little Chrismtmas towns that people set up on their buffet tables. Gorgeous!

It has a lovely Dickens-like twinkle to it, doesn't it? Tell the Strawberry Girl she is a peach :)

I'm with Nancy on that last photo. That is so beautiful with the snow, lights and the mountains in the background. I would love to see that view everyday. Beautiful pictures.

You live in a winter wonderland. I couldn't imagine anyplace more beautiful in the snow. Loved that "platter" of snow on the newspaper stand. Thanks for letting us go sledding with you!

A really nice shot of the town.I like to skate as well as sled. I figure if you live in it, it is best to play hard in it.

Your church scene is so special I don't think anything could make for a more delightful Christmas scene.

What a wonderful Christmas card from Switzerland, Allison.

Hugs,
