Winter Wonderland

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! 
It has snowed so much here in Germany over the last several days!
It's supposed to ice tonight which I am not looking forward
to, but the snow is gorgeous! 
I've got a ton of errands to run tomorrow,
so I hope the roads arent red or black.

We are having J's birthday party this Friday night
and I am making a cake plus yummy favors:
Chocolate peanut butter truffles & cake pops.
Expect a post on the making of those soon!

Until then, here are a few photos of our Winter Wonderland. 

This was on Thanksgiving Day

And this was this morning......
After 3 straight days of snow.....

J is rolling the base for our snowman
I cant believe the difference! 
That's at least five inches of snow

My feet were buried and by the time we were done playing, I couldnt feel my toes!
They were dry though, so thank goodness for rain boots! 
Beautiful view from our backyard 

Our first snowman of the year!
Yes, his mouth is made out of dog food. ;)

Of course after we finished building the snowman we had
to have a snowball fight!
This was also the perfect morning to make pancakes, fried eggs and
hot apple cider.


How's the weather where you are?

WOW! That's a lot of snow, in fact I got chilly just by looking at those pictures.
Weather here in gorgeous, we do have a cold front around though and this morning was early 70's for us, that's pretty cold for the Carribean (don't laugh!)... Have a great day!

Snow makes everything look so much prettier. Up here in Alaska we do have a real winter by now - enough snow for skiing, downhill&cross country, and it is getting chilly ..... :-) Temperature is most of the time around teens, although it was below 0 a couple of weeks ago.
Anyways, snow days are awesome - have fun out there!

How fun! It reminds me of our winters in the midwest. We had a dusting the other night, and for where we live, that's a pretty big deal. We were excited and the puppies didn't know what to do with themselves, it was so fun!!! And your breakfast sounds delicious!

I love looking at snow but hate going out in it! Here in the Pac Northwest it's overcast and rainy. I'm glad its not snow:)

I love the snowman and the snow looks beautiful. I'm used to the southern heat so I'm not ready to get any snow. It makes me shiver just thinking about it. Good job improvising on the mouth of the snowman!

That is a TON Of snow- believe it or not, I have yet to actually encounter any. I live in sunny South Florida. Hope you can make a snow angel for me. :)

Hahaha! Sounds like a great time. I love the dog food mouthed snow man. It snowed here yesterday but the wind has been blowing so hard here today that it's been blown away. Oh well.
