Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow

The Northern Kentucky/Greater-Cincinnati area got it's first big December snow of the season and it was no joke!
Friday through Sunday were were dumped with rain, ice and almost 6 inches of snow in our back yard....talk about a winter wonderland!
Kev and I hibernated all weekend long and it was beyond perfect. We originally had plans to be out of town for a Christmas charity event, but due to inclement weather, it was postponed. We made the most of our weekend and curled up in our house with lots of sweat pants, online Christmas shopping, hot apple cider, turkey chili, hot maple toddy and cinnaclove nut crunch candles, apple pie with vanilla ice cream, a couple of movies and lots (and I mean LOTS) of Christmas tree decorating.
I love being on house lock-down in the winter. Nothing better on a cold night than being curled up on the couch with my hubby, the doggies, a wam homemade family quilt and some cider. Sounds like a little slice of heaven to me. 








Not only did we love the gorgeous snow days, but clearly the doggies did too. Uggie would snow "plow" for hours if we had let her. And Bailey is our little polar bear...the snow almost camouflages him, especially at night.

It's the little things this weekend that made me count my blessings.
Happy Monday y'all!

Aw, I love these pictures! Snow is so pretty when it's fresh. It's the gross, dirty slush when it's melting that I can't handle. Love love love your yard! But you forgot to mention in your recap that we texted allllll weekend long too. I'm feeling very left out ;)

I'm so jealous that the rest of KY got snow :-( Nothing happened in Lexington except rain and about a half inch of ice. I wanted snow!

Send some of that snow this way! Glad you guys had such a fun weekend! Our dog LOVES the snow. He'll stay out there for hours if you let him!
