Well this was definately a day for the record books here in Virginia and the most snow this So.Cal. gal has ever seen! We've got about a foot and it's still snowing right now! This is our backyard and that big mound is the BBQ! LOL
Here is the front of our house. Our youngest son had to be to work at 6AM (perfect!)....his car parks on the driveway and was pretty entrenched so we got up to take him which was quite the adventure at that hour! I took a couple of pics in the afternoon when I went back out to pick him up. This is our subdivision street, as you can see it hasn't been plowed but other's had driven on it including me earlier! You have to be very careful!
This is a pic of the street that you drive down to get to our subdivision, it's considered a secondary road and by the time I had to go pick him up it had been plowed but it hadn't been at 5-something in the morning and that too was quite treacherous but doesn't it look pretty!
I'll bet some of you who get snow all the time are rolling your eyes but this is all very exciting for me! LOL
While you're here I thought I would share a few pics of the tree I have in my office that I forgot to show you last time!
Most of the ornies were made by Shannon of Sweet Liberty Homestead, she sells on ebay and I purchased a few ornies from her last year and a few the year before.
There's little log cabins and barns and a couple different lanterns that have a hole in the bottom so you can insert a light from the strand up in there! Cute huh? I added a few candles and paper ornies and think it makes for a mighty cute tree!
Then lastly, I wanted to show you the blanket crane that husband made me using Kris' tutorial (Thank You Kris!) He did make a change to it, he modified the middle piece a bit and added screws to the top and bottom of it so it can move side to side. I have been saving that throw just for this! I also hung a little framed Christmas print on it for now.
I figured that today would be a good day to hang it so we did. I had a couple of pictures in that spot before but took them down to make room for the blanket crane.
Well that's all for now! This is the first time in my entire life that I've had snow around me right before Christmas and it's WONDERFUL!! Merry Christmas!!
