snow day in pictures...

on tuesday we woke to a beeutiful blanket of powdery snow!

the backyard (viewed from the kitchen bay window...it was all sorts of crazy cold so i didn't go outside for a loooooooooong time)

the bottle tree looked neat with a layer of snow


all wildlife were well taken care of...the husband filled all the feeders on monday afternoon in hopes of snow...


view from front door to neighbor's house



i LOVE the colors in this...



we arent' going anwhere!



my altar worked!


tyler didn't see what the big deal was...


her preferred to spend his day like this


out like a light...


after the snow stopped falling we went for a walk with the newest member of the family, barrett...a rescued golden retriever mix that the in-laws got right after christmas...


i also made snow cream!


and as for 'the queen'



she was on her throne!


in honor of this special event, we even light the gas logs!
it was such a nice day...hopefully we will get another one before springs arrives...

I'm thinking if your snow altar worked that good, I better have you make me a "sun/warmth" banner! LOL

Well, I knew you were crafty but who knew your craftiness actually controlled the weather??? :)

Glad you got to stay home with the kitties.

Oh, what a great picture of the squirrel getting a snack and Barrett is the cutest! I love Goldens. At events, I always go to their tent and hug all the rescue's necks.

Sophie doesn't look amused by the snow at.all!

It's so so pretty! It does make you want to stay in and drink hot chocolate and read a book. I thought that was sophie outside in the snow...so I enlarged the pic and saw that it wasn't.

sandy, the queen's feet are too delicate for snow!

The photos are so pretty! I love seeing snow photos! The snow cream looks tasty - I've never had that before!
