winter wonder land

Look at how our Creator decorated our trees for us!! Isn't it beautiful and wonderful?? I absolutely love it. Never will you hear me complain about heaps of snow that falls...never. And poo-poo on the nay-sayers who whine about it. I feel sorry for you. Seriously. **This pic was taken from my bathroom windows. Please ignore the unfinished paint job (which is totally my fault) and no, we have no curtains or livin' folks!! Love it.

Lucy has been itching to get outside. Finally one of the big people in the house caved in to her sad baby-browns. That would be Dad, of course. She looks anything but enthused here but that is only because Dad told her he wasn't taking her outside until she let Mom take a picture. So she posed, best she could. Bless her heart.

Sorry but this is the only pic I have of Lucy-bug playing outside...and if you look closely at the photo, you will see a tiny "grid"...hence, is why my quantity (and quality) of pics are limited...yes, that's the screen you see because I was INSIDE.

I fully expected this little pink-adorned powerhouse to return inside quite quickly after going out because of the bitter cold, but no...she absolutely loved every second of it!

Thank you, Lord, for the absolutely gorgeous display of your creative hand. You did a great job frosting our trees and blanketing every inch of ground with snow flakes, none of which are alike...that's so like YOU! It's beautiful beyond words. Oh and I'm also SO grateful for the incredible WARM house you have provided so that we can fully enjoy the snow outside...while we are inside. Thank you!!

I so agree with you about the snow. Beautiful in Chicago, too. We got an extra 4 inches of lake effect snow. Gotta love that lake.

I agree that the snow is gorgeous--it's just that I don't like slogging through it with a grocery cart or dealing with a car that is covered in salt--which the kids brush up against and get all over their coats. :)

But yes, it is soooo pretty to look at!

Yep--snow IS beautiful--when you're INSIDE! Take me outside, and I am not a happy girl :)

I love your pink little powerhouse :)

Oh Lucy looks so sweet all bundled up! Sydney would have stayed out forever. We had to make her come inside too. Right now it is 7 degrees with a wind chill of -8. BRRRRRRRR!

And many of our pics have that subtle grid too!

I want some snow!!! It's about 2 degrees right now with a wind chill of -15 and not a snowflake in sight!

I love little pink Lucy, I just posted Abigayl dressed about the same from we were back that way visiting a few weeks ago:)

I love the snow too! And by that I mean how it LOOKS! And I like driving in it unless it's too slippery. But I'm with you. When the kids go out, I'm in. :)

It is so beautiful and so incredible! I love fresh snowfalls! I do stress fresh because our dogs go out and ruin it in no times if you get the drift- that's a pun! I'm crackin myself up!

The kids love being out in all this beauty BUt I did notice Momma Lori stayed inside her cozy home!! I'm an insider too!!
