A Wintry Wonderland...


Oh boy, I do love me some snow! It doesn't need to be much, a little goes a long way...

Last Saturday, right after the snow stopped falling, we went out to chop down our Christmas tree. It was mighty cold out, especially after having enjoyed several days with temperatures around 60F (approx. 16C). No matter, we decided quickly and the boys started chopping.

The tree farm got partially flooded, see all the water on the right...
That would have been a fine size for me! <wink>
Cows on the hill trying to stay clear of the rising flood waters...
Barn roof top on the way...

The valley (despite all the flooded roads over the past week) was at its prettiest. A lovely day...

Since Master C. was home for a few days we had to take the Christmas Tree Cutting picture of course:


He took the bus back to Spokane again yesterday and will be back around the 20th, for three weeks that time...

Right after he left, our Christmas tree fell down once again. (twice last year!) This time Mr. G. went out to buy a bigger base and now the tree is still standing. Thank goodness we have no breakables in the tree!

Overall we had a wonderful five day break. My personal highlight was the first evening that Master C. was home and I heard him and Miss M. chat away together on the other side of our bedroom wall.: Family Time!  {smile}
