OH my...sweet girl...you really ARE in a Winter Wonderland! So glad you were surrounded by those you Love most, and were able to just stay inside and "be"! Hope your Christmas was overflowing with ALL that is Right! Sweet blessings!

P.S. Your photo will definitely remind me NOT to whine when we get a couple inches of snow :D

wow! I remember snow like that, though I have not experienced it in many many moons. I like in Los Angeles and Christmas was great because it was the first one with our new baby boy. A little snow would have been nice, just on Christmas day, and just a little! Hope you get to do more celebrating soon!

We had snow but nothing like that...Christmas was wonderful with the granddaughters!

Oh dear, it's a good thing Santa can find his way through blizzards! We, on the other hand had 2 days of non-stop Christmas RAIN this year. Not to worry though! Today we received 7 inches of fluffy white stuff to help make up for yesterday. Sort of pales in comparison to your experience though!

Julie Harward said...

OH MY GOODNESS!!! HOW CAN THAT DECK EVEN HOLD THE WEIGHT OF THE SNOW?! AMAZING...WE HAVE COLD, BUT NO SNOW! CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE RECIPES...Come say hi :D

Holli~Where The Rooster Crows said...

judging by the chair snow meter, you really got hit, big time!

Kay said...

Gee, thanks for sending the Christmas Blizzard to me! lol
We have 10", of new snow with an 1" of ice underneath and 5-7ft drifts. The snowplow has not gone by yet. And we had no electricity on Christmas Day from 4a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

But we were warm, (kerosene heater) and had food and each other (dh, me and ds2). And Christmas still came!

I was wondering what had happened to the chair. Was looking for you to post about it when the last snow melted. Glad to see it's still your snow meter. :)

Loved the other pictures of snow piled up too. We got some finally, but it's almost all gone now.

Our Christmas celebration was potponed until January 2nd because WV had an ice storm and we didn't want Sister S on the road then. I did get a wind chime from Sister P in OK, it's on my latest post.

Glad you and the family had a great Christmas and please post the recipe. You know I enjoy everything you share as I make them myself. Yummy!

Happy New Year, sweet friend. xxoo

Cow Pies & Mud Pies said...

Wow! I thought we had a lot of snow! We enjoyed the Christmas Blizzard as well-not quite like you did...:)
Can't wait to see what recipe you are sharing!
Your cards should be arriving any day now...I'm so excited for you to receive them.
We had a wonderful, Blessed Christmas and hope you did too!

Train Wreck said...

Oh my that is WAy more snow than last year!! Look at all the snowmen waiting to be born;) We have a skiff and alot of mud! We had a wonderful Christmas though. I hope you did too. Happy New Year my snow bound friend!

Pyatshaw said...

Wow, you certainly get the snow! I suppose that is fairly normal for your area. Here in UK we don't normally get huge amounts of snow but this year here in our part of Scotland we had a white Christmas but no snow fell that day but had quite a fall last night but thankfully no wind at all so no drifting although the village is at a standstill as it is on a hill and there have been no gritters seen here at all.

Emily said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog Farmchick!
WOW you guys got a LOT of snow too! Our 4 day winter storm finally quit yesterday. Whew! Now I can finally GO somewhere! Lol!

Growing Up A Country Girl said...

Thanks for visiting my place - you have lots of snow too... Our snow was very sticky great for making snowthings - watch my place to see what we all made on Christmas Day -- stay warm and enjoy the snow while it is here --- I'll be stopping in more often--

denise said...

OMG,you did get a lot of snow.I'm kinda jealous. All we got in Florida was rain. Your pics are lovely. Denise

LadyFi said...

Callie said...

Thanks for stopping by my blog, Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you. OMG! And I thought I had it bad with snow, good grief, I can't believe the snow on the porch! Yikes!

The Farmers Oldest Daughter said...

We had snow too but nothing like that. Of course we don't know how to drive in it and our road crews don't know how to prepare for it.

Stay warm.

Boy did you get walloped!!
I hope you have been able to DIG out by now.
We had a good Christmas and I hope that your late Christmas it just as good!

Shelly's Stuff Jewelry said...

Wow. I can't even imagine dealing with snow. I lived in New York for the first 17 years of my life and always remember loving the snowball fights and going sledding. But, I've lived in Florida for just over 20 years and my blood has definitely thinned out! Thanks for sharing the pictures! Brrr...think I need some hot chocolate!

~The South Dakota Cowgirl~ said...

As your neighbor to the south I can say we spent our Christmas in the blizzard of 2009 as well. We did take the chance while it wasn't snowing Christmas eve night to head over to an uncle's house (a christmas eve tradition for 47 years now) to play guitars, have supper and hang out. We shut it down about 3 hours earlier than normal though, as we drove home in 0 to 1/3 of a mile visibility. Spent Christmas day feeding hay to the animals we could get at, and doing chores around the house. We have more Christmas festivities to be had when everyone gets themselves dug out! Glad y'all came through okay!

Muddy Boot Dreams said...

Oh my, that does look like our part of the world last year.

Hope that you get dug out soon.

Happy New Year.

The Wife said...

Wowsers! You did get some snow! It snowed within 20 miles of my house but nothing here.

Sharon said...

We also had that Blizzard and have postponed our Christmas till this weekend.
It also my youngest sons birthday so we celebrate everything in one day.
I have a drift in my front yard and I can't even find my front deck.
It blew and snowed from late Tuesday night till late Saturday afternoon.
We got about 12" and 50 mph winds everyday.
Can't wait for the new recipe.
Thanks for sharing.
I love the chair meter.LOL

Nel said...

Wow... what fun! Looking at your snow pictures made me think of when I was a kid. I grew up in suburbs of Chicago, and I remember mom making Snow Icecream... mmmm memories! How pretty...we barely got enough to cover the ground.
Happy New Year!

Maria said...

What I wouldn't give to be there playing in the snow, then sitting by a fire drinking hot chocolate!

Happy New year!!

The Primitive Bucket said...

Oh that poor chair. I remember your post from last winter..but living where you do you just expect it and make the best of it!! I love to come look and see what you are cooking up and taking pictures of. Delish and beautiful as usual!!!
