Let it Snow and Snow and Snow and Snow......

This winter has brought quite a bit of snow in our area. Our first snowfall that stuck around was then and we have been experiencing more and more of the fluffy white stuff ever since. And it will most likely stick around for another couple of months. So even though we are dreaming of spring.....(minus all the mud :) and are looking forward to the days when we can go outside again without having to put on all the winter gear....as the saying goes...IF YOU CAN'T BEAT EM....JOIN EM! So here's to winter and snow and cold weather.....a photo journal of winter here.

Every year Mark pushes a big hill while he is cleaning out the yard with the tractor. It's a big highlight and the kids love to play on it.
The more snow we have the bigger the hill gets.
Caleb trying his feet at snowboarding

Zachary trying to stay up on skis


The more the merrier

Nate's going to play it safe and ride the GT down.

And Jesse would just rather push the GT!

Jumping is always fun!

They look so teeny!

We have rows of hay and straw bales that we baled in the summer to feed and bed the cattle in the winter.

There are usually some pretty fun snow drifts that blow in around the bales. Another favorite place to play.

More Jumping Fun!

Sometimes you sink up to your waist :)

Josiah just likes to lay back and enjoy the ride

And over the winter the trail needs to be broken over and over again. Not always an easy task for those little legs!

Sometimes you just need a rest!

Even Teddy likes to play in the snow

Do you remember these pictures from the summer?

Here's what the old truck and tractor look like now. Guess the boys won't be playing on them for awhile!!!

We have cleaned off this deck several times....

The trees and branches are heavy with snow.

I think the horses are waiting for spring when their owners will be able to spend more time with them and ride them again.

The whiteness of the snow is breathtaking. It really is a beautiful time of the year. God's creation is amazing.

And here's a picture of one of our calves....just for fun!

Wow! That is a lot of snow! I too, enjoyed all the pictures of the kids. Loved the mid-air ones. And the buried tractor, wow!

Snow is so beautiful and we love when the trees ice over and make tinkling sounds like a chandelier. Sooooo amazing to hear~

Love this post. We've been blessed with the 4 seasons that we get to enjoy anew every few months. I love Winter and once it's over I'll welcome spring and enjoy that time also and so on. They are all special to me!
