Will it ever stop snowing?

I swear I feel like Im living in a frickin' snow globe.
So does everyone else who lives around here. 
It has been snowing here for days. 
Many, many days.
As of yesterday morning we had over a foot of snow.
A foot!
That is more snow than I have ever seen in my 
twenty eight years.

We had a brief break yesterday.
And then it started to rain. 
Which quickly turned to freezing rain, 
creating a thick layer of ice on top of the snow. 
Last night the wind was raging so loudly
that it kept me up for 2 hours. 
And now it's snowing again.

It's really is beautiful, like a real Winter Wonderland.
The snow covered trees are breathtaking 
and the large flakes of falling snow have a magical quality.
The ground glitters with ice crystals 
and everywhere you look are sledding children
and snowmen of every size. 

Surprisingly, our dog Reese LOVES it. 
She's a bit of a spoiled princess and doesnt usually like 
the cold and wet, 
but she has been spending lots of time 
bounding through the snow drifts and digging 
snow tunnels. 
It's been really fun watching her. 

For now though, we're all cuddled up on the couch 
while the snow and wind swirl outside, 
drinking our hot apple cider and watching Christmas movies, 
enjoying this Winter Wonderland together.

I live in Central Germany and this is the 2nd time that we've had a foot, rain melted it turning it to ice and now we have more snow on top. Love me a German Christmas!

Happy Monday to you! :)

How wonderful that you get to have such a beautiful Winter Wonderland! (We are in the 70's in FL)

I seriously cannot even begin to grasp what it would be like to have that much snow! It is incredibly beautiful, but I know y'all get sick of it, too! Christmas just seems odd with the 60 degree weather we're having in Mississippi! Love your pictures, so beautiful! Merry Christmas!

It's so pretty, but I can imagine your frustration with how much snow you've been getting! I was over the inch we got the other day really quick!

FUN! I'm hoping we have a white Christmas in DC like they're predicting. Reese is so stinkin' cute in the coat!

Terrific snow scenes! I know it's impractical when it snows this heavily, but I still love it! Glad you're at least able to enjoy its beauty! Stay warm :)

The snow is gorgeous but I'm sure it can be a pain. A foot - holy cow! Hope you have a great Christmas!

I can't believe you guys have so much snow! I'm not sure I could handle all that.

I love the fact your Min-Pin loves the snow. Boomer HATES it. He doesn't even want to go outside and walk in it when it snows.

I would love, love, love for Germany to be our next assignment, but I know I'd have trouble adjusting to the cold and snow! Hope you guys are staying warm, and I'll bet you'll have a beautiful white Christmas :)

Ok, so I grew up in the midwest, and sort of love snow. But more than anything else, I really love your dog's coat. I cracked up and my dogs looked at me like I was crazy.
