Our White Christmas

There was something almost magical about waking to a fresh snowfall on Christmas morning.  I bounded out of bed to look out the window, and said, "Oh my gosh!!"  I felt like a kid again, and quickly grabbed my boots, coat and camera to capture the dogs as they ventured out for the first time.  We only had a dusting of snow this morning, and about 3 inches this evening, but the dogs had a great time frolicking about!  The snow was just enough to create a winter wonderland, but not so much as to interfere with our plans to spend Christmas with family across town.  Our house guests from Florida knew they were heading to cooler temperatures for the holidays, but got to enjoy a white Christmas too.  The snow is pretty, but I don't think they'll miss our climate, as I already heard them discussing the 70-degree forecasted temperatures at home on Friday.   As for the dogs, the holiday was spent breaking in new toys, snacking on tasty treats, and taking frequent naps where I'm sure visions of snow-bunnies were dancing in their heads.  I hope everyone had an equally beautiful and enjoyable holiday!

  4. Wow, what a beautiful Christmas. Your dogs just love to run, don't they? They're so graceful and you're so good at capturing their grace. It's funny how snow makes all dogs want to romp!

    Merry Christmas!

  12. Now that I know what kind of pics will come of it, I'm going to pray that all of our snow goes to Virginia this winter. Oh wait, I do that every winter... ;)
