Thick White Blanket.


Here are a few bonus photos for those of you still jacket free this December. We keep getting more snow than expected, and Saturday was no exception. We had fun playing in it - sledding and shoveling and digging. The mountains of snow at the roadside are challenging to summit but the boys love climbing something so tall. We had to carve steps out of the mounds just to get to the road to reach our mailbox.


Being outside while the snow is coming down is so nice. Big, fat, fluffy flakes, so thick and heavy that they cloak everything and stick to the eye lashes.

The blanket of silence and yet so clear the chirping of the dozens of birds at our feeders.

In seed time learn, in harvest teach, in winter enjoy.

We got the snow of the century about 4yrs ago. If we want to see snow we have to go North but it's nice to see it even in pictures. Love that silence when it's snowing.

we are living out snow vicariously through you!!! We finally have gotten colder (50's) instead of 80's but I fear we will be back in the 70's by the end of the week.
The grass is always greener! Or maybe the ground is always whiter on the other side!!! :)

Yes, winter is to enjoy. I agree completely with the poet, and therefore lay in a good supply of hot chocolate and spicy tea just for watching the snow come down.

Your little ones look like they understand the essence of enjoyment as they play in the snow!

I picked some violets today in my side yard. No snow here.

Thanks for thinking of us no-snow people!
