Yeah, I know I'm a little lame posting these snow pictures now that the snow has come and gone, but snow here in Portland is still a magical thing and brings out the kid in all of us.
Here is the Count sitting in our back yard with the bundled boys while Girlie busies herself making a snowman:Some fun on the sled. Powdery snow like you see in this picture is very unusual for the Pacific Northwest. One end of our street:And the other end. I just love how the evergreens look white with snow:A closer look. Is that guy trying to cross-country ski there in the background? Okey dokey then.My bundled babies on the sled:
And I really like this next picture because when the Count took down our perfect Christmas tree after the holidays, I wasn't quite ready to give it up. I asked him pretty please to put it on the deck where I could see it from the kitchen window. He looked at me like the crazy person that I am, but he did it. Just in time to get flocked by real snow. To me it was like a gift. (Don't mind the awning--it had to be tipped down so it wouldn't collapse under the weight of the snow).And finally our creek surrounded by wintery white. I'm happy to say that I can see my tulips starting to sprout up now in the back yard. But the snow was such a fun, special time here.
I have more pictures to show very soon of my SP9 reveal package (Tracey spoiled me but good! Thanks, Darlin') and snippets of some knitting and such for you to see. Until then, my love to all.
