Let It Snow

I know that the last thing that a lot of you want to see is snow – or pictures of snow.  We, on the other hand, had the delightful experience of snow for our annual “snow” trip.  When we arrived it was summer like weather with temps near 70*.  The only snow to be seen was on the mountain top.

The day afterwards it started to snow.   It snowed and snowed and snowed.  We all loved watching the flakes falling throughout the evening and then all the next day.  In total we got about 12” of fresh snow and it changed our scenery to a winter wonderland.

Digging out to leave was a different story and driving was a bit challenging.

It was a great time for making family memories.

Their last snow trip as they will be away at colleges next year.
Have you signed up for the Spring Meet and Greet Stitchers?  If you do any sort of handwork – cross stitch, applique, etc. you need to sign up for the fun.  I just signed up and am looking forward to seeing all of the beautiful work that is going to be shown.

oh wow! What a sight to behold! We are supposed to be snowed in when we wake up tomorrow so we went out and bought a kerosene heater, just in case. :)

One thing I just love about you is your family....just lovely!

I would love to there! What fun for the kiddies! How exciting for those who are leaving for college. Our new intakes are here at 'O' week. I love seeing them around. It had been quiet in the last 3 months - Hugs Nat

I am really enjoying the snow photos as we don't get any here where we live. And even more wonderful seeing your family together - it looks like it would have been a great holiday.

I would love to see snow. We have not had enough this year. Looks like a ton of fun for your family

The snow photos are lovely but I know the trip home with chains on the tires was not........what a wonderful family gathering you had!

SuperMomNoCape said...

What a great family tradition! It must be pretty wild (and fun) to have that many family members together at one time. I'm more than ready for there to be no more snow but I can see the appeal for those who only see it once a year.

Ramona said...

I enjoy looking at pictures of snow, and yours are beautiful, but do not like looking at snow in my yard! It looks like you had a wonderful time together.

Maria said...

Oh what a fabulous way to build memories...
