Christopher Creek got its share of snow.
It was a winter wonderland. Snowmen were appearing everywhere, but this cute one was in a very strange place.
The Wallace family actually built it on Hunter Creek Drive.
Now, I don't know what encouraged them to build one on the road, but it sure was a plus for those driving by.
Somehow I was picturing their neighbors Mick and Lynn Davis coming by in their new red convertible and this snowman joining them. That would have been cute.
As you drive down Highway 260 into Payson, people were pulling off the road everywhere and making these snow guys.
They were everywhere. Isn't funny how they just appear when there is snow?
Unfortunately along with the snow came a lot of ice.
In the mornings it is extremely slippery here in Christopher Creek, making it almost impossible to walk outside before the sun comes out.
I can't count how many times I fell.
The problem is you can't see the ice, it is black ice.
If you are driving up this way early in the morning or at dusk, be aware of black ice.
It is on the roadways that don't get any sun, and it is very dangerous. It is in the parking lots, it is everywhere.
Friendly Elk Road
Last week I told you how dark it was on Friendly Elk Road, not even a friendly elk or a Christmas light.
Well, get ready, because Caren and Sam Seay were away but they are back now and their house is all lit up, as is the yard and anywhere they could put a display.
It is well worth a drive up Friendly Elk Road.
I don't know about you, but I have been having a really tough time keeping my decorations on with all the rain and heavy snow and I have to admit it was dark at my place for a while, but I am also up and running.
Jo Armistead on Homestead Drive in Hunter Creek is all lit up again this year and her place also looks nice.
Friday, Dec. 14 the Christmas Potluck at the Christopher Creek Bible Fellowship Church is at 6 p.m.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Come out and bring the whole family for a night of Christmas carols, good food and make some new friends.
Santa is coming
Saturday, Dec. 15 from 2 to 4 p.m. is the annual children's Christmas Party at the fire station.
Children are asked to bring along two nonperishable food items to put in food boxes that they will decorate and pass out to those who may need one.
Santa will be making an appearance to all the good boys and girls.
Decorate your quad
Don't forget, Saturday, Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. it's the first Annual Quad and Cart Christmas Parade.
Get out your quads, decorate them and head to the Landmark parking lot where everyone will head out for a parade through the community.
There will be prizes for the best decorated vehicle and maybe even some hot chocolate.
Mike Harper will be adding another candle to his birthday cake on Dec. 15. and Bob Anglin will be celebrating on Dec. 21.
Wishing both of you a Happy Birthday and may your wishes come true.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Power Webb, who is down at Mesa General. We all wish him a speedy recovery.
