an you believe it? More snow here! On Christmas Eve we had an actual (almost) blizzard! We received more than 12"of snow overnight along with winds of more than 50 mph! The results were beautiful!
Our Great Pyreneese Lance thinks this is wonderful! We let him in when he wants to warm up a little, but this is a winter wonderland for him. I keep catching him sleeping out in the snow, all stretched out to enjoy the delightful cold. His favorite winter sport is tackling sledders though! Consider yourself warned if you come over to sled!
We have a pretty good hill behind our house so there has been a lot of sledding going on here. Since Nate is home right now he helped the boys build some pretty fun snow ramps. I have been out sledding with them too. We laughed so hard! I love playing in the snow with the children (both young and older!).
Look! My echinacea were wearing winter hats this morning from an additional 3" of snow we received last night!
I think I introduced you to Dude didn't I? This puppy has some serious cuteness issues~ I think I'm smitten! (Yes, I know, I really shouldn't let a puppy that could easily weigh over 200lbs as an adult get on our furniture!) Seriously we are training him. A good friend directed me to this site~ if you need some dog training info. What a wealth of info you'll find there!
Nate has to leave Friday morning to head back to Ft. Drum, NY. I will really miss him. One morning (before it snowed here) I happened to look out the window to see him leading his little brothers and friend Paul in PT. Love this interaction between older siblings and younger. This is fruit that I cherish.
