Snow Day!

Well, here are the pictures of the snow I promised. I woke up Thursday morning to: "Eldarwen, Eldarwen," (this is Narthea and Caldirwen speaking), "Can you believe it? It's snowing outside!" I jumped out of bed, bundled up with LOTS of layers, slipped on a hat and gloves and ran outside (with my camera, of course). Ty loved the snow! He was having a better time than us! lol =D Like I said in my last post, we got 6-7 inches of snow. Probably closer to 6. :) It was quite a bit. More than we've received in years! Alright, alright, here's the pictures...

Ty's paw prints:

Ty outside, on our covered porch:

Our driveway:


In these first few pictures you can see that the snow had just recently started falling. There isn't much snow. Here's a pic of part of our pasture with snow falling:

Footprints in the snow (mine):

This is (left to right) Caldirwen, Narthea, Esara and moi. We're standing by the cross our dad built that sets on our tank-dam, and we're looking towards our house:

Part of our fence:


The chicken fence:


When Narthea got home, we made a HUGE snowman. Caldirwen leaned down to kiss him...
and...
*slush*

His poor face:


When I woke up the next morning, the snow was still packed on the ground, but it was no longer snowing. I went outside to take some pictures of the beautiful snow. These are the snowman and woman Esara, Caldirwen and I built Thursday while Narthea was at work:


My boots were buried in the snow:


Ooh, beautiful woods:


Our barn:


Our front yard fence:


Our driveway... that you can no longer see:

The edge of the pond:


Tree branches:


Our pond:


Our pecan trees:


Another small tree:


Our backyard gate:

Fergie (our tractor):

And our cross:

and just a heads-up for Summer Girl:
From now on, every Monday on my blog Summer Girl will feature a new weekly event called Commenter's Monday. In this event, I will post about one commenter that I think deserves the post. The first part: why I chose them to be featured on Commenter's Monday. Second: a short interview with them. Third: A snapshot of their blog.
Please visit to see this! Go to http://summergirl-ew.blogspot.com. Thanks!
