Snow for Christmas...

The patio on the morning after.


The yard

One small path...



A path plus the front walk

 
Notice most of the Christmas lights are buried!


 
Finally finished!

That's alot of snow, my friend. We have about 8"s, very pretty.
Your home looks so inviting. I imagine gingerbread baking and candles glowing. I love wreaths on windows. Your decorations are beautiful! :)

That is a lot of snow!! And a lot of clearing of paths!

We've had more than usual at this time of the year, but not quite up to your depths. Though Mr. G had to clear the drive and now has a back back!

WOW! That is alot of snow. And I have to admit, when it isn't in my neck of the woods, it is beautiful. :)

You got the snow too, more than us! I couldn't believe it when I heard how much fell in your area. I was hoping you all were okay! Yout photos are beautiful. I love how the snow looks right after it has fallen, clean, crisp, glittery and beautiful! Your house looks wonderful in the snow setting :o)

O.K., so this is more than a "dusting" and pretty much what we are used to here in Ontario. Not what you are used to however and unless you are in for some very warm days, you definitely will have a white Christmas. Your home is a beautiful backdrop for all the snow and Santa loves that white stuff up on the rooftops! Have a wonderful Christmas.
