The weather outside was frightful

We got snow, snow and more snow. Last time I posted I talked about the snow we had. Well that wasn't the end of it. Friday it held off until later in the evening but then it started and it kept all. Saturday I didn't even go out for my usual weekly shopping trip. I stayed home and cleaned and of course shoveled

Just a few pictures of all the snow


 Once the cleaning was done I thought I would show you that I'm not a total grinch with no holiday spirit. As Ginny pointed out though, It's not in the decorations. Christmas is in your heart.

Top left I have a bit of Christmas on my table

Moving down the left side my bathroom wall has snowmen on the shelf and quilted how to build a snowman wall hanging that I made years ago.

My couch got a festive red throw, some Christmas pillows and a gingerbread girl that I also made (years ago)

Top right Wade pulled out the Christmas tree and put it up. It's waiting to be decorated later today

The snowmen are lined up on the steps

A pretty red noel hand towel sits on the bathroom counter

I swept off my porch coming home, we are getting a dusting but not very serious.I made goodies yesterday and shared them with neighbors

You decorate the bathroom? LOL Bigger pictures would have been nice, so we could see close up. Watching the weather report on the daily news each night always gets a "Oy poor Ann' from me.

You may take awhile with things, but when you do get around to them, oh WOW! You have done it up beautifully! I especially like the snowmen on the steps. How much snow did you get? I hope you don't have to drive to work in it! Do you have four wheel drive? We have not had any yet, but I know it's coming...

It is snowing here today too. It makes me more joyful in the holiday spirit.

Your house looks cute! My house looks like Christmas threw up. Not sure why I do this...but I do. Only to take it all down again.

I'm home and blogging again. We had a great long weekend.

Wow, that's a lot of snow. I'm glad it's not be in that. I would hate it.

Love your decorations and your tree is beautiful.

Have a fabulous day off. Big hug to you and lots of scritches to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

My favorite are the snowmen on the stairs! They look so cute! Have fun decorating the tree - I hate putting the lights on but love doing the ornaments.

Your Christmas decorations are lovely Ann! It is snowing in Pittsburgh right now - our first snow of the season. I believe we're supposed to get a couple inches. Not much, but it looks pretty!
