Winter Wonderland!

Happy Winter!! Just thought I'd share some beautiful pictures that my very talented husband took of our window the other day... and a few others too!

Aren't they gorgeous?! God is so creative and amazing!In the last week, we were blessed to recieve quite a blanket of snow! We've had a beautiful, mild November, and then winter came in with a bang! We heard on the news last night that we haven't had this much snow in November since 1996! (and we've only had snow for a week!)

Anyway, both Bobby and I LOVE snow so we've really enjoyed the last week! It's so beautiful! (Of course not so fun to drive in, but we've been able to stay at home all week and just enjoy watching it fall.) We both bought new winter boots last weekend and the other day we went for a quick little walk (it was a bit colder than we thought!) and took a few pictures... (yes, we do take a lot of self portraits!)

Our home base (for now anyway!)

It was snowing so much you couldn't see very far!

This is one of our favorites...

Two things will always make me smile... snow and being with my wonderful husband! (and what fun it is to combine those two things!)

It just kept snowing and snowing!
and of course I couldn't resist playing in it! :)
In my world, it's officially time to celebrate winter... and Christmas! I've been listening to Christmas music for the last couple of days now and I love it! Nothing better than curling up with a blanket and a hot drink and listening to Christmas music and watching the snow fall!

We haven't decorated for Christmas yet though since we're starting from scratch and can't really go too crazy since we have to either store everything or take it with us to Japan (most likely storing it since we already have Christmas stuff in Japan... including a HUGE tree we bought from one of our co-workers... can't wait to set that one up!) Anyway, we're going to go tree shopping at the thrift stores around here sometime soon and see what we can find so soon our home will look like Christmas too!
Hope you're enjoying your winter!
