On Friday morning November 19th we woke up to 6 inches of snow on the ground. Our first significant snowfall of the season.
Snow is such a delight to our little grands. We received these photos via text.
Any snow in your neck of the woods yet?
Today I’ll be shopping for the things we need for our Thanksgiving meal and other ‘company’ meals. I’ll be off the radar the next few days while our company is here. Hope all of you in the U.S. of A. have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good; for his steadfast love endures forever!
For the benefit of our family and my memory bank I’m posting several more photos of our family time over Christmas. Some of these are out of order and some repeats in collages…
Thank you to Laura for all the photos!!
On the day of our Coast kids’ departure we gathered for more last minute fun at Dan and Jamie’s with a great lunch of leftover Rib Roast, creamed corn, salads and other goodies. A great clean out the fridge meal!
Such great uncles and aunties.
The day after our Coast Kids journeyed home we had seven more inches of snow at our country bungalow (Wednesday December 30th). In the next several days the temps will be above freezing and we have some rain in the forecast so the snow will become a sloppy mess with puddles everywhere.
Here’s the latest puzzle we are working on and hope to get done before Russian Christmas which is January 7th! Perfect weather for puzzle time.
After Christmas we got enough snow to be able to go sledding. Jaymison isn’t convinced about the wonder of snow but Addy really enjoys it.
The contrast of delight and “I’ve had enough of this stuff”!
Love this snapshot of our grands with their mommy! And that was our snow event in the last days of 2019.
So far the snow that has fallen has not been an issue for getting around. The larger snowfalls quickly melted off because of temperatures over freezing.
I’m happy to report that I’m feeling a lot better. Happy to leave my only illness of 2019 behind! I’m thankful for a very healthy 2019!
On Boxing Day we all gathered at Dan and Jamie’s after breakfast for some fun in the snow and dinner. When Addy woke up from her nap we headed down the driveway for some sledding on the steeper section of the 1 mile driveway.
The sled picked up some nice speed going down and the climb back up was manageable.
Couples decided to give it a try, too.
Laura even managed a selfie zooming downhill with the snow flying in her face.
Addy didn’t think it was time to go inside and half way to the garage she noticed Auntie Katie still on the sled and high tailed it to her.
One last ride into the house.
Another great family memory in the books!
The Western kids left Friday morning for their drive to Spokane Airport for their flight home. It was a quiet afternoon here at our Country Bungalow. Dear made a trip to the dump. Two months of trash disposal cost us $10. Today we woke up to a fresh snowfall. It looks like we have about six inches.
I’ll be staying put today enjoying some down time. How about you?
