A few weeks back, we awoke to a winter wonderland! And this place does feel that way. Hills everywhere, trees covered, and a house that looks castle-ish. The children were out as soon as it was light enough to see. I just found these pictures on the little point and shoot I carry around in my purse. I had totally forgot about them being on there. Maryann decided she was allergic to snow, because she kept getting it in her boots and she didn’t like that. She and I and the little ones headed back inside to make hot cocoa, apple cider and pumpkin bread to de-thaw the older ones when they came in. We all really missed our dog that day. When it snowed last year, she had loved it. Racing all around. She looked almost wolf like. But, alas, many new memories from this day with just brothers and sisters.
