Winter Welcome

I know a lot of my family and friends do not like winter. But it was a requirement to be married to my husband. Not really, but it helps. I have always liked winter. To me it is just so beautiful. On days like today it can be one of the most beautiful seasons. I just stepped outside and snapped these pictures a few minutes ago. It's only 2 degrees today with wind chills of -25. The church had an outing planned today to take a group sledding. Needless to say it was cancelled. Mom called me this morning to ask if I was going to church in this weather.... "Mom, I only live 1 block from the church".
I took this photo standing on our front porch looking at the neighbors house. It's snowing lightly but it's blowing really hard so it looks worse than it is. And really, we do not have a lot of snow. Not enough to snowmobile. Monday and Tuesday was nearly 50 degrees so we lost most all of our snow and had to start over again. Craig and I did go grooming last night with what little snow we do have. And yes, I wore my seatbelt the whole time. We groomed from 7PM to midnight.

Craig has a new snowmobile. Well, used but new to us. He sold our oldest sled and upgraded to this one. He's out in the garage right now polishing it all up. He's very happy with it.

Caleb should be home from Traverse City in the next hour and I'm making chicken tacos for dinner. Time to go.....

I love the snow...too bad we don't get any. Your pics are really pretty.

Good job on the seatbelt. ;)

Your snow is my type of winter.

I dislike winter when it is just grey and rainy.

Our first winters when we moved to Scotland were dramatic, but over the years they are nowhere near as good.

I love the snow pictures. I could tolerate a white winter.

But have to say I love the sun and the summer best.
