(Day 360) Walking in a winter wonderland

Sunday Dec. 26, 2010

After Christmas celebrations with our son's family yesterday, we headed out for the 4-hour drive to where our 3 daughters live. We didn't realize the full scope of the change in scenery until this morning. After church we took a couple of dogs for a walk and saw what 3 feet of snow looks like in the brilliant sunshine - pretty, but I wouldn't want to shovel it !

Rick this is a stunning shot and no kidding not wanting to shovel that much snow! I'd get out the Cat if I was out at the farm and had to get through that sort of snow! Like I've ever driven the Cat! lol

That's wonderful that you get to see all of your children, a few dinners I'd imagine. Christmas is family, love, and laughter, this is why it's my favorite time of the year!
