Snowy Winter Wonderland

Hope you all are warm and snuggly in your homes. Here in Connecticut we are being hit with a winter storm. Really the first one of the season. We are getting another one Sunday. I think right now we are at about 10" and it is still coming down. I love it when it snows, when it is a good snow storm. I know by the end of winter I will say different, but for now it is fun because the girls are having fun with it. I thought I would share some photos. Grab a nice cup of hot chocolate with mini marshmallows.
Snowfall after roughly 30 minutes. This was around 12:30 p.m. today.
I took this picture at around 4:40 p.m. The children who live on the street are all playing in the snow across the street.
Girls were so excited Daddy got home from work because HE takes them in the snow. This is about 7:30 p.m. Even our new puppy is enjoying herself.
They had so much fun. I don't really have any winter clothes for them so they are in three layers of clothes! LOL
I had the darndest time getting Audrey to look up at the camera and smile. Jane was very willing.
Finally...but she said, "Mom Iam too busy." I am amazed that Brownie is still playing in the snow. I was freezing my pippy off while taking pics.
Slowly making their way closer to the front door!
I think Brownie wants to come in!
Look at that face. She looks like she is pleading with me! We have had Brownie for three weeks. She is almost 3 months. She is a brindle pitbull. She is our second pitbull. Chloe, our first, died this past May. Chloe was 10 years old. The best dog Dan and I ever had combined!!!!
Audrey~Are you cold yet!?!
Jane are you cold yet? (She looks funny in this picture).
Jane is ready!
YAH! SHE's Cold! I couldn't get her to smile! She is cold and all wet!
Of course she can't resist alittle snowy snack!
Look at those rosy cheeks!
Well, I hope you enjoyed the Girls Snowy Winter Wonderland! Stay Safe..Stay warm...Stay full~of Hot Chocolate~
hugs, Ellen

Good-morning Ellen,
Thank you for all your wonderful and thoughtful comments. It was so wonderful to wake up too. We have been getting snow here in Portland OR too. Not quite so much of coarse but it has been beautiful. Your little girls are so darling. They seem like true snow bunnies- next year you will have to get them proper gear so that they can build a proper snowman. Don't worry about the houses... even if they had them I would rather you stay in side where it is warm! Yumm I love those little marshmallows too!

Happy Pink Saturday! ENJOY! Fifi

Pretty girls. Our dogs used to love to put their noses down in the snow and run in circles. The snow would pile up in front of them!

Now the dogs are gone, and I live in Florida--temperature is currently 77.
