Winter Wonderland

Gentle Reader,
I have been a little distracted of late because of a certain little someone who arrived last Wednesday night. Scott, Nicole, Bailey and Spencer got here safe and sound after a few delays and I have been busy holding Bailey at every opportunity. But I did take a moment to get some pictures of the snow here. It feels like we are living in a picture postcard! "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening"

"He will not mind me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow...
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep...

The youngsters were very enterprising-- most of our winter stuff is packed away in long-term storage--but Seth found my rubber gloves handy for keeping his hands dry!


Sam taking advantage of the snow and a perfect hill.



It's hard to get a good night picture of the cabin--but you can see how Dad risked life and limb to get lights all around.




We can't wait for everyone else to get here for Christmas!






I feel like I live inside a snow globe--and someone keeps shaking it!

Is that poem from the poetry book from my class at BYU?? I'm pretty sure we studied that in my class. haha

"...and miles to go before I sleep,
and miles to go before I sleep."
It's a few lines from Robert Frost--I brought several books of poetry here to the cabin so I could inflict it on the youngsters at every opportunity! Can't wait for Tuesday! Hope the weather cooperates!
