Christmas eve we went to bed and knowing that Santa probably would not come and expect us to help put toys together because he would have a lot more stops along the way. I know each and everyone of you have probably had to help Santa. During the night I got up to see if it had snowed. Nope no snow and I wondered if the weather man missed it, I know they are human and Mother Nature is hard to predict, I guess like a woman.
Christmas morning came and when I got up DH had just opened the blinds and when I walked in he said Merry Christmas. What a beautiful site with the Christmas snow. God and Mother Nature had given us a RAK. We are here in the panhandle/West Texas part of our world and don't get a lot of snow but here it was several inches. Nothing to stop this part of the world but the snow was beautiful. Hearing the crunching on it when you walk on it and the quietness of the fresh cleaned world. It just seems to clean it all at one time.
This was the site I saw when I first got up and it was still snowing.
The site out our front door, now it did snow at Christmas time a few years ago but the news and paper did say it rarely does here. We have been in this house 4 years now and we have had two white Christmases. I think that is good odds.
One of the two concrete little people we have at the front door. One this cute little boy and another a little girl. To remind us of the sweet grands we have. Well and to hold the rug down when the winds get up to their casual 60 plus miles an hour. Usually it is 15 to 20 miles an hour and we are use to that.
DH sweeping off the back rug so the fur babies have a dry place to walk on when they first go out. Now remember they are outside dogs except when it really cold or hot, when the wind blows, when it is snowing or raining or they are just looking cute. But they are outside dogs, remember that. They do have their "tropical" hideaway with heaters, baby monitor, smoke alarms and plants and their 6 inch foam beds. It is really pretty back there.
Just a pretty view of one of our windows from inside to out. We do decorate some outside but not like we use to.
Well the year is coming to an end, seems like yesterday I just said that about 2012. I have been doing some art work and some Crazy Quilting. That stuff just gets in your blood and love doing it and collecting the pretties that you can play with when doing CQ.
All of y'all have a safe New Years Eve. Did you know that the new year comes in even if you are asleep? Surprising isn't it?
Hope all have a wonderful 2013 and will be back to posting whatever is happening in my world. Thanks for stopping by and create something pretty.
