Frostproof homes aglow with sights of the season

With its white picket fence, this scene on Overrocker Circle makes for a classic holiday look.
A little more reserved, but definitely still beautiful, is this scene on Sunset Drive.

There are several houses as you drive through Woodham Heights and around to Beverly Drive.
This Seventh Street home uses its natural setting to accentuate the holiday, where you will see the winter wonder land put together by Dawayne and Joandiie Thurman.

With such a festive yard, it's almost easy to miss Jolly Old St. Nick on the rooftop of this Seventh
Street home.
