The snow give occasion to many "photo shoots" around our place.
The Little Boys
"Hey mom! You haven't put any pictures of me on your blog lately have you???" Seriously, this girl is a character!! She's daring and stubborn and so beautiful!!
our Ice Princess!!
And yes, Daughter #2 (our resident photographer since Son #2 moved to Hawaii) even conned me into getting my picture. Do you see that I got my hair cut? It hasn't been this short in over 20 years--it sits right on top of my shoulders. I've always kept it put up anyway. And can you see that I'm wearing my Crocs? Lovely snow shoes don't you think??? (my eyes aren't shut, by the way. I squint really bad when it's bright!!)
Lila is part Black Lab and part Chow. One night I had this dream that we found a puppy in our barn. Then that very morning the kids woke me up shouting about finding a puppy in the barn. I was like "yeah, I know!!"--then I realized I had only been dreaming. She looked just how she looked in my dream. A big ball of black fur. That was about 10 years ago. She's getting older now. She's been a faithful watchdog and protector for so many years and I'm thankful that the Lord sent her to us--even if she does steal our eggs. :-)
