Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
On Friday we woke up to snow! It was so beautiful as it laid a soft layer of white dust on everything!
I braved the cold and went out to get some pictures. I love this pretty picture of our new cozy home in covered in snow!
There was about 2 inches, but it kept on snowing!
Everything looks so pretty when covered in snow!
This picture looks like I have it on a sepia setting, but I don't, it's full color!
Everything is so magical.
The snow is so peaceful.
I didn't have to go to work! Snow day!!!
My husband and I posed for pictures for our Christmas card.
This is the winner!
Hayden and Blondie are enjoying the snow too!
We went back inside and had breakfast and watched as it continued to snow.
It's fun to be all cozy inside watching it snow!
It was piling up fast and when I went back out, we were up to over 6 inches! We ended up with close to 9 inches total!!!
Talk about winter wonderland!
Here's my seasonal shot of this tree! I took the same shot of the same tree in the summer, then fall and now winter!
Now this would be a pretty Christmas card too!
Eric and I went out to check on the goats.
They were smart and stayed inside the barn.
We cleaned up their pen, blocked off any gaps in the walls, laid down new straw and Eric bought some special bedding. We gave them warm water and more feed. They seem to be doing quite well out there.
Eric's going to check on the pond to see if it's frozen.
Yup! It's froze over, but not solid by any means. Isn't it pretty!
This old wild pear tree is exquisite!
Me and my snow sweetie!
What a difference this picture is from the one I took earlier in the morning! Now it's almost completely covered!
I love this picture of our mailbox!
Home sweet home!
The gates look so pretty!
The old rugged cross looks so lovely in the snow.
The next morning it was all still here!
The sun is starting to rise!
Another beautiful snowy day on our farm!
I love this picture of our flag blowing in the wind on this snowy morning!
Everything is so still and peaceful!
So happy to be warm and cozy inside with my honey.
It was so cold outside!
It got down to -2 degrees!
The goats are staying warm and are so cute!
Another view of the old pear tree. Look at that gorgeous blue sky!
It's so pretty!
It almost looks like cotton!
I went to check on the pond and now it looks completely frozen solid!
Look at the beautiful crystals growing on top!
It's simply breathtaking!
I gave it a little test and heard a little crack and my foot did go in, so it is not frozen solid. I hope our goats or dog won't try to walk out on it.
I love Oregon because we get to experience the four seasons. It is rare for us to get this much snow and to have it stay so long. We have had freezing temperatures for a week now and we are praying that our pipes won't freeze. It sure is beautiful though and it is especially fun at Christmastime!
