Happy New Year

I hope everyone had a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We had  a white Christmas this year.  The first one we have had in many years.  I know to some of you our snow wasn’t very much but we have ice under our snows so it makes them very dangerous.  These are pictures of Christmas morning.

My cousin’s car is in the driveway and when they left, late Christmas day, they had to really scrape the windows and let it warm up for awhile.  They came Christmas Eve evening when the weather was “OK” and when they left Christmas afternoon, what is normally a 2 1/2 hour drive for them turned into a 4 1/2 hour drive for them home.  Unfortunately, our roads are not kept clear because we don’t have the equipment to do that. 
We had a quiet New Years Eve.  We didn’t even see it in.  Our daughter and her husband went to see his family this year so we kept 2 of their 4 dogs.  This can be very interesting when your dog is blind and one of theirs is a pup and is quite rambunctious.  They are good dogs though.

Our dog is the one in the red sweater, his OU sweater.  The other one is their youngest. He just turned a year old. These are our grand dogs, you might say.  They both went home yesterday.
This morning we woke up to more snow.  I am not a fan of winter but we have no choice in this.  It is a pretty snow though.  Here are some more pictures of our snow taken today.

It doesn’t look like much but it will turn to ice by tomorrow, just in time for everyone to go back to work. 
I have a terrible head cold and tomorrow is my birthday so I hope I feel better by tomorrow.  I never get a cold like this one, but it hit me this year.
I am hoping that all of you have a very blessed 2010 and I hope to meet more people in blogland.  It has been a fun time getting to know everyone.

Happy Birthday a day early Maxine! I'm sorry you aren't feeling all that great, I hope you can get lots of rest today so you can enjoy your day tomorrow!

It's down right cold here in Virginia....cold enough to snow but the air is dry. I'm ready for some more snow!

Take care and Happy Birthday again!

Happy Birthday! Maxine, I hope you have a very special day.

We have not had snow yet, but they are predicting it later in the week.

The dogs are all so cute! I love schnauzers and miss my Pepper so much. We never dreamed of getting another dog after her. But the Lord had other plans. Our new puppy is growing like a weed, literally! She has already gained a pound in the few days we have ahad her! I still have hopes that she will stay relatively small! LOL!

Happy New Year! May it be filled with blessings & joy!
