It's a Snow Day!

It's the first "Snow Day" of the year. The kids are thrilled because the weather is so bad that the school buses are cancelled and they get to stay home. We will likely decorate the Ginger Bread House early and have some fun indoors. The wind is really gusty and the visibility is low . . . so no driving today.

Last week we took some pictures for our Christmas letter. Cider is usually up to silly tricks when all this is going on. She has been like that every year, since she was a puppy. I think she knows the Santa hats equal silly poses and giggles. She always makes the kids laugh . . . so we get natural smiles.

She is jumping around being goofy here . . . . and generated lots of laughs.

I found this picture online yesterday . . . the ten best pictures around the world are published every day. Must be a fun job to do the choosing! This one was taken by Mathieu Beanger. An amazing picture of a Polar Bear shaking off water after a swim.

How is the weather in your part of the world today?

Hi Karen...
The pics of the kids and Cider are really nice. Beautiful children!

I love your snow picture. Winter pics are always so peaceful and pretty.

It is sunny for the moment...but really cold. I hope they are wrong, but the prediction for this coming Sunday... -30C for a high!!

Have a warm day!
Hugs, Nancy

Was so thrilled when we got our first snow ... 6" of it ... today we are having sleet/icy rain ... I so enjoyed browsing thru your blog.

Your children are cute as can be.

Merry Christmas, TTFN ~Marydon
