A Real Snow Storm

Saturday, December 20, 2008

Today was one of those mornings where you wake up to several inches of snow on the ground and a good snow storm underway. After canceling all the plans for the day, we all bundled up and ventured out for a late-morning walk. Then it was all about getting toasty warm, making coffee, and turning on a newly rented video for Sam, which we picked up on our walk. Do you see me waving at Landon in the upstairs window? I'm happily housebound, loving every minute of this wintry snow storm.

It's been quite a storm today with white powdery snow falling steadily, strong winds blowing it all around, and temperatures in the low to mid-20's.

The hummingbirds come by often for nectar, and sometimes, they fluff up their feathers and sit on the feeder, too cold to fly back and forth from their nest to the feeder.

Sam worked all morning on his Sculpey figures. In the past, he has watched Landon make them, participating here and there where he was able, but now, he makes them all by himself, and he does a really good job.

Here they are, fresh from the oven. There are many different sea dinosaurs, a centipede, and a human face.

I'm excited for this evening--sitting on the couch with Landon, playing with the kids, catching up on my magazines, drinking lots of hot coffee, staying warm by the fire, and savoring this winter storm, which is so beautiful to watch from our eight living room windows. This is the first December in many, many years that I can remember where the wintry weather has slowed down my schedule enough where I'm not longer stressed about keeping up with the holidays, but instead am enjoying, appreciating, and feeling happy and content.
