No disappointment as this is what we woke up to this morning.

Snow means sledding,

It doesn’t snow much in Houston, so this time in Maine is a delight. Even the shoveling doesn’t seem so bad, but maybe we’d change our minds if winter were longer than a few days!

What winter are you experiencing today?

  1. Happy New Year Linda! I’m making the rounds to see what I missed and it is plenty of beautiful snow! Snow is a rare occurrence for us. Your second photo looks like a winter wonderland! Love your picture with the reindeer antlers:)

  2. Looks like so much fun!
    Enjoy, wishing you happiness and joy in the new year.

    1. Thank you Patti for stopping by with your good wishes.

  3. Such excitement for the children and adults! Beautiful grandchildren and winter scenes. Have a wonderful time with the family. Memories are treasures to savor.

    1. It is such fun to see the kids enjoying the snow. For the 3 year old, it is his first experience. Sometimes he likes it, sometimes not. I do love building the memories.

  4. I grew up in Texas and Louisiana but my mom is from OH so every other Christmas we would go there and to Michigan to see her family — visiting snow was so much fun! But not sure I could ever live in it full time. Enjoy! Tammy

  5. Like waking up in a snow globe!!!

    1. I’m crazy about snow globes so I love your analogy.

  6. Oh yes, we definitely have lots of snow in New Hampshire. The only problem is that it is heavy wet snow…not easy to shovel off the walk. Thank goodness we have a plow and a snow blower for most of it.

    1. We had to call a guy to come plow today. I couldn’t bust through the icy mass that was our driveway. I’m kinda glad not to have to do this all the time!

  7. Oh how wonderful to have a White Christmas…enjoy the time with your beautiful family!!! Just love the pictures!!!

  8. That’s a LOT of snow!!!! You look so cute with those big ol’ snow shoes on! It’s fun when you don’t have to get out in it to go to work or whatever. That’s when snow can be classified as pretty! 🙂 Such cute photos of your grandchildren. They look like they were having the time of their little lives, too! Be safe, and Happy New Year!

    1. Snow is even better when it seems a novelty as it does for us Texans. A few days in Maine goes a long way.

  9. lovely photo. I am happy you enjoyed a white Christmas. We did too. It started snowing on Christmas eve and hasn’t stopped!Thank you for sharing at the hop xo

    1. oops the s fell off of photos…giggle. should read photos 🙂

      1. It sounds like you better keep your snow shovel handy!

  10. No snow at all, just grey skies, windy and rain rain and more rain.
    Beautiful photos!

    1. The snow is fun, maybe more so because we only spend a few days in it.

  11. Yes… something magical about snow. Beautiful and fun snow photos!

    1. I think it’s best if you don’t have too much of it. Shoveling the driveway today was a bit of a challenge!

  12. Popping over from the Thursday Favorite Things Blog hop. Here in Baltimore we had a snowstorm yesterday and the kids raced out on their sleds but it has all melted today!! Gorgeous photos of Houston. pop on over and say hi

  13. What wonderful photos !! We had snow in Dallas and its still here! Happy New Year to you and yours.

    1. I don’t think the snow made it to Houston, so close and yet so far.

  14. Loved the Christmas photo! Unfortunately we are getting more wind and rain down here in South Thomaston….all the snow is melting.
    Wishing you and your family a sunny New Year filled with all good things.

    1. More snow falling so maybe it will stick down your way. Same wishes to you for a great 2013.
