Spongebob Wishes You a Merry Christmas!

A few years ago I made a trio of Spongebob characters out of plywood for our front lawn.  I simply found and printed out free coloring book pages that I liked and then drew them to a larger scale on the plywood by dividing it and the coloring page characters into squares.  I painted a festive Santa-like jacket on Squidward, and Spongebob and Patrick received jaunty hats.

We got our first snow last night, about two inches when it was all done.  Other parts of Wisconsin weren't as lucky as we were and got 12-20 inches of snow.  Katrina will be driving home through the snowy war zone today and battling high winds and blowing snow.  When she finally makes it home she'll find a lasagna and some loaves of homemade bread...and that Spongebob and pals weren't buried in a blizzard!  Merry Christmas, Everyone!


  1. LOVE your decorations! Merry Christmas!

  2. I hope Katrina makes it home okay. The weather's pretty frightful out there.

    Our son is traveling cross-country from New York to Oregon. Last we heard, he's in Genesee, Illinois, coming up on Iowa. There are vehicles all along the sides of the road. He said he stopped counting.

    May they arrive safely to their destinations.

    1. Katrina made it home fine, the roads were pretty good by the time she got going. I saw a few unfortunate vehicles in the ditch on my way in to work though! What a drive your son is making, and through snowier parts of the country than this by the time he makes it home. Happy Holidays to you all!

  3. Wishing you a lovely holiday season; here's to safe travels for all who are on the road to get to their loved ones for Christmas.
