It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas

I would like to start this blog post by saying, yes I am aware I live in Ohio. I know we have crazy weather sometimes. That doesn’t mean I have to like it. Monday morning it snowed. Lots of heavy, wet snow that clung to everything. It looked like a beautiful scene from a Christmas card. My problem with this? The turkey hasn’t even begun to thaw out for Thanksgiving yet. Seriously, Mother Nature, let me eat my turkey before you make me look at that white junk.

This didn’t stop me from taking pictures of it. I mean, I hate to admit it, but it did look pretty. This is the first thing I saw after getting out of my car at the farm. I saw lots of snow all over the road getting there. Very glad we only live a half of a mile away. Could have been a long ride!

Once the sun came up I could snap a few more pictures of our winter misery beauty.

If you look really close, those 2 black dots are some chilly ducks.

Of course, with it being the first snow and my children’s horrible adaptation to the time change, the tribe emerged bright and early to play!

Snow also brings on snow ball fights. Who better to come after than your parents?

I wish I could have recorded all the laughter in this shot. Now there would be some undercover farm video for you!

When we were done and came home the plight with the white stuff continued…

The snow was also a first experience for some this year. Our trusty little wanna-be cow dog had never played in snow before. She quickly took to chasing and attempting to retrieve snow balls!

Little Henry took a more reserved approach and enjoyed his first snow from inside our warm house!

This day was nothing compared to the next two where it struggled to get over 20. Good news is a few more days and it’s supposed to warm up and rain. Then we can enjoy our mud…
