ATTENTION READERS: I am once again interrupting my regularly scheduled blogging to bring you the very latest here from our neck of the snowy woods.
I totally should have gone into broadcasting. Didn’t that sound so professional?! I felt like I was talking into a microphone while I was typing. Ok, sorry, back to the snowy woods now………..
Basically, this is just a post with a bunch of snowy pictures! But we want to remember this beautiful snowfall, so I am documenting it for us. However, if you like to look at a lot of snowy pictures and hear a little funny, go ahead, read on.
This is what we woke up to this morning (March 5, 2015). Well, at least the kids and I did. Sam had gotten called out to work at 2:30am so he was long gone at this point, not to return til evening. I love when the snow sticks to the branches like this. It snowed all day and we got lots more than they forecasted. Unfortunately, we had to do school all day, but it was fun to look at from the dining room table. Every once in a while, I would run out on one of the porches to get a picture.Sam’s Ranger is basically buried.
Grace’s tree As soon as Weston was done with school, he was out the door! Dunk (that would be my brother Darrell, for those of you who don’t know him by “Dunk” ;)) came by in Fred’s truck to plow us out this evening. Thanks, Dunk! Gracie Girl I love this picture. And that is not anything coming out of Grace’s nose~just a snowflake falling down. We have icicles on our chimney and doghouse dormers. Our road. Ok, so the kids came with me down the driveway and they all wanted to jump off this big rock into the snow. Here’s Grace……no problem. Here’s Lyvie……no problem. And here goes Weston……… Problem. He got stuck. I thought they were joking at first. And I even said, “If I tell you that I’m really leaving you to go back to the house, you couldn’t come?” And he said, “No.” So, I asked the girls to go over there and pull him out. They pulled and pulled and couldn’t do it. It was like Winnie the Pooh stuck in Rabbit’s hole. I really didn’t think I could help with my back the way it is, so we yelled to Sam, who thankfully, had just gotten home. So, he came to the rescue and pulled him out, right out of his boots! Ha! We were cracking up! His boots were so stuck that when Sam finally got one of them out, he fell right back into the snow. We got a good laugh! Here is Grace under our favorite pine tree down by the road. And Lyvie’s turn. It was like a fort for them. (And where was Ethan, you ask? He was out doing chores still.) Our Little House in the Snowy Woods. Throughout all these snowstorms that we have been having, (which by the way, we love!) Sam has been maintaining a nice path to the woodshed with the tractor. No, we are not tired of the snow! It is God’s beautiful creation and we are soaking up every snowflake! Spring will be here soon and everything will be a muddy mess. So, we are just enjoying the here and now. The beautiful snow, the cozy wood stove, the hot cup of coffee while we do school and watch the snow fall. I love it all! This is my kind of weather!
Tonight, as I was heating up supper, Sam called us to the front porch. Grace’s tree looked like something out of a Narnia movie or something. It was so magnificent (and still is). This picture definitely does not capture it. The tree is just softly glowing. We are loving our Winter Wonderland!!
