 {My world right now)

Hello {what used to be our} sidewalk and {what is now} a foot of snow.
Hello dirty and slightly broken window in our wood shed. I saw you and thought you were looking uniquely picturesque with the large snow covered tree through your glass.
Hello home. I have always fancied you with a bit of a gingerbread house aura. Today more than ever. How warm and inviting you look! And what thick frosting you have!
Hello little boys having so much fun together on this snow day. You all look so darn cute. Your adorability belies the whining and fighting that has punctuated our day. Soon I will dress you all in so many layers you will lose your balance and we will jump into one of those cold fluffy mountains.
Hello three year old. When Mommy begins talking about our house being a gingerbread house it is only because she has entered her own little world of sugar plum fairies. Our furniture isn't really edible. My apologies for leading you astray. You, my darling, are simply scrumptious though.

Hello idealistic expectations. You propel me to aspire to creating these with my angelic little boys this afternoon. The end result will more than likely not be the sweet little picture of family creating that dances in my head. But I will hold on to it as long as I can.

Hello Bloggy friends. I hope this day finds you warm, happy, full of anticipation, and ready for the mistletoe.

We have about that much snow too- it just makes it feel like christmas! I love the pictures through your shed window.

I really like that picture through the shed window! All that snow must be making you feel very cozy and Christmassy.

I'm so jealous of everyone's snow!! Lol!! I've NEVER seen snow that thick (and my BFF saw snow for the first time in her LIFE only last year).

Awww, that's the first time I've see your whole outside of your house, it's adorable!

...those boys are pretty adorable too :)

Hello yourself! That snow would have me eating the furniture, too - too cute! We will satisfy ourselves with making sand balls and sand castles instead of snowmen, though...

Mari said...

We've been snowed on too - about 12 inches last I heard. I had to go to work today and am happy to be safely home. I love this happy post with cute little boys, gingerbread houses and gingerbread men!

Rachel said...

I loved this post. GOrgeous pictures and creative story-telling captioning.

Heather said...

What a lovely post! I wish you could send some of the snow (and cold) my way. 77 degrees here - not very Christmas-y!

sara said...

I love the snow when it's in your pictures....but enjoying 64 degrees and sunny here!!

I hope you had a great day baking cookies with your boys! And even if they don't turn out like the picture, I'll bet you had more fun than the person that made those!!!!

Merry Christmas!

Those boys playing and the gingerbread men look so nice. Stay warm!

I LOVED all the pictures:) I really really really like the one you took from the window of your wood shed. Great eye:) I wanted to go out the other day and take some pictures. The snow isn't pretty now though. It is more like dirty slush. I should have gone out earlier.

I got to bake a carrot cake with J and he and Noe helped me to shell dry beans tonight while you and Dave went out to eat and shopping. I did not take pictures but we had fun. Thanks for the time I got to spend with the boys and for Dave coming to get me. Our road is still not plowed!!!!!!! Love, Mom

And what a lovely gingerbread house it is! You sound like me, putting romantic spins on everything in our heads (yeah, remember when I wanted to enter my mini Christmas village?) :)

I LOVE the shot of the tree through the window. You are practically a pro, my friend. :)
