Dear Wendy,
Such a fun slide show! Thank you.
You do have snow...my goodness.
How many inches?
Stay warm and safe...no slipping and falling.

Hi, Wendy,
B-r-r-r! That looks cold. At our show the other night, we sang at the end, "I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas." I wonder how many were singing that from the heart since they all come to Florida to get away from it. I've never had a white Christmas, nor have I seen much snow.

Great photos. I like the appearance of your blog. Your header photo is beautiful.

Big hug.
Good night.

Wendy, I like the slide show and the snow flakes falling over it. You do have some snow there! Guess that takes care of walks for a while, or do you brave the weather anyway? Hope all is well with you and your family.

Have a great Holiday!

That looks just wonderful! I'd so much like to wrap myself up into something real warm and have a long walk through the snow! It's been quite some time since we had so much snow, I really miss that!

Lots of hugs
Carin

Wow! That's a LOT of snow! Great photos...it must be sooo cold!

I wish the snow we had yesterday stuck, but snow falling and melting is better than no snow at all.

Great presentation Wendy. Hope you didn't have to shovel all of it. You made winter look very inviting.

Wendy said...

Hi Sherry, I think we got about 20 c.m. Not sure how many inches that is. But it's our first big snowfall of the season.

Hi Bev, thanks for your compliments re my blog. Christmas is a time to decorate! You are welcome to come to my house and spend Christmas in the snow. I'll be waiting for you!

Hi Cheryl, it's cold alright. And yes, we got somebody to shovel when there is lots of snow. I haven't bought an electric shovel as yet. Not sure....

Hi Grammy, isn't it exciting? You get to see your grandbaby before she's born! Hopefully next time she'll cooperate and NOT be face down.
My daughter's apointment went well, except that there was a 3 hour wait for the ultrasound, so she decided to do that later. She had some blood tests and is waiting for the results.

Hi Beckie - this is just the beginning. We have more snow on the way tonight! I go out for walks when the snow is gently falling and it's not too cold. If it's really cold I stay home!
Happy Holidays to you too!

O.K. Carin - watch out. There's a Snow Cloud heading your way. I sent it and it's full full full of snow!! LOL!

Hi Kanak - some and visit! It's really not that much for us. It's a good start to the winter, but we will get lots more before the season is over. Yeah, it's cold, but warming up on Sunday.

Hi Annette - it must have been fun for you yesterday to see the snow - you're probably glad it melted anyway. Otherwise, your plants might freeze.

Hi Ruth, no I don't shovel. We finally found someone who would shovel our walk when there is lots of snow. If it's only minimal, we'll probably leave it.

So beautiful, Wendy. I know you get tired of it, but I think it would be lovely to have a white Christmas! Did you get anyone to clear the snow for you?

Carin Fuchs said...

LOL Thanks a million Wendy, has worked! We had snowfall the whole night and its continuing! Not as much as you have but I am easy to please! LOL LOL LOL

Mimi said...

No electric shovel thingy??? I love the pictures, but I get cold juts looking at them. Alas, I was meant to live in warmer climes.

CIELO said...

that's lovely... I don't like winter, or winter storms, of driving on a snowy day, but winter has its beauty... its whiteness and purity is fascinating... is like an enchanted world embraced in a white shawl... ;)

See you at the party

Your title says it all--it really IS winter at your house! I love this kind of snow at Christmas, but after that it can all melt away as far as I'm concerned, but I don't think that will happen here this year either:)

Just catching up on blog reading after being gone a week (Toby thanks you for your compliments, by the way). I loved your dancing grandbabies! My daughter found that website last year and put in some of our photos then; it was a lot of fun. Enjoyed your post about your mother and grandmother's fruitcakes as well. My mother--and I when I was a teen--used to make Swedish tea rings to give as gifts at Christmas time. I can still smell the scent of cinnamon and the rising bread. Yumm!

Wendy said...

Hi Jen, yes it is pretty. And we did get someone to shovel, so I don't think I'll run out and buy an electric shovel after all.

Hi Carin - see? I told ya. Snow on the way. LOL!

Hi Mimi - I was meant to live in a warmer climate too. Now I'll just have to get there!

Hi Cielo - how poetic! What a nice way to describe winter. I like that. And I don't like driving in the snow either.
See you on Sunday.

Hi Rose - I hope you had a good time away. My mom also made swedish tea rings, but not to give away - we ate them! Ummm - delicious!

Mary said...

Gee. I'm so darn jealous. That's just beautiful. Ooooo how I'd love to bring my camera there...

Wendy said...

Hi Mary - welcome - you can come here any time you want. Or I'll just send you lots and lots of snow! LOL!
