Hello King Winter

Snow Covered

Winter has finally come to our little neck of the woods bringing with it breathtaking beauty.

Good morning

It started snowing yesterday evening, with the snowflakes falling quite heavily and this morning we awoke to a little over 4 inches of snow on the ground :)

Frosty Face

I could hear the squeals of delight from the family room as I lay all cozy in bed and I knew that I was going to have to officially designate today a snow day because there was no way that I was going to get the children to focus on school work with all that snow beckoning them to come out and play.


With their snowsuits on and their gloves cinched up tight they were all gone by 8:30. Not long after there was a knock on the family room window letting me know that they had made paths around the house to the chicken house, the woodshed and around the front yard :) The snow is so light and fluffy that they even shovelled half of the driveway and that is no small feat!

Face Plant

There were no snowmen built today because the snow refused to stick together but there was a whole lot of snow angels, sledding, snow eating and the occasional face plant *grin*. All I can say is BRRRR!!! The temperature was around -6 today and with the wind chill it was more like -15 making our little jaunt to the mail boxes down by the main road a little nippy so we really had to do some speed walking to get the old blood pumping and create some internal heat :)

Falling snow

More snow is forecasted for tomorrow so I can just imagine what filled their prayers tonight at bedtime *grin*.

You have snow???? It somehow skipped up completley. We must be the only snowless place in the province!

that top photo is stunning. I love snow, not any to be seen here in the uk so you will have to trow a snowball or two for me. x x x

It looks so beautiful. What a fanastic winter view. Impressed at how industrious your children are. I'm sure they slept well.
