Christmas in Gatlinburg, 2012

I am so happy to be right where I belong ... in the Smoky Mountains.

One day Clint and I realized for years before we met each other, we both had always entertained the dream of spending Christmas in Gatlinburg, Tennessee.  Last
January we drove up there and made reservations.  My how fast the year flew past us.  We had a wonderful time there, we spent three days and it was so peaceful.

Scratch one more item off the Ellisons' bucket list.

Clint enjoying the view from atop the Space Needle in Gatlinburg.

It had been decades since I gone to the top of the Space Needle.
You get one of the best views ever of Gatlinburg and the mountains.

Our hotel was built right on the Little Pigeon River.  The sounds
of the rushing river could be heard from inside our hotel room.

Another great view from our balcony.

Loved those hazy views from our hotel balcony.

The "Clock Peddler" is a very special shop for clock lovers
such as Clint and I.  We had not planned on buying a
beautiful clock.  Merry Christmas to us! 

Christmas day lunch.
