Winter Snow

I mostly had to post this because it was scary seeing my face pop up every time I brought up my blog! Tee Hee!

Our back yard, the chairs are almost covered!

Our "barn"

just pretty snow...

This has been a beautiful winter so far. So much snow. I love snow! Really, I am not kidding. I hate driving in it, but, I love playing in it, and building snow sculptures. I love the fact that it makes you want to stay inside and cuddle in a warm blanket and watch a good old movie. I watched the old "Sabrina," with Audrey Hepburn and Humphrey Bogart, over the holiday and started "Roman Holiday" also starring her with Gregory Peck. Man, I LOVE old movies. There is just something about the simplicity of them that I enjoy. Movies now try so hard to make everything so "real," dreary and hard to face--maybe, I just want to get away from "real" and just enjoy a few hours feeling blissful. Maybe that is why I enjoy cartoons like "Horton Hears a Who" or "Kung Fu Panda." Just happy, with a little lesson to be learned and we laugh and enjoy it.

I also want to mention that my dad's side of the family Christmas party was SO MUCH FUN!!!!! It was such a blast. I don't have any pictures and I wish I did, I forgot my camera, but, it was full of balloon popping, gloved present opening, duct tape, movie's famous lines, basketball, soup and ice cream. But, most important family! Thank you all for being so wonderful... I love you all very much and I am so proud to call you family. I am so blessed.

Last night I had a get together with my immediate family. I love them dearly. They are one in a billion. I am so blessed.

My nephew, Bryan leaves on a mission to Chile on Wednesday. I had the opportunity to teach him, and raise him for a time. I am so blessed.
