Old MaN WiNtEr StoPPed By..and Hasn'T LeFt..

Well the first day of Winter came in with a bang! you can't see any of the walkways..We had to make paths so the outdoor kittys could go from the house to the garage..When we first let them out this morning..they had to walk in our foot path and it was up to their bellies..and up to our I don't own a pair of nice winter boot so I am out running around in my rubber a little cold on the old toeies.....None of the photos are in any order so just be prepared...(its the way my mind works)...

Here is Stanley Manley...settling in for a long winters nap..

Here is our Old man who just found this little bed under the deacons bench by the fire..he is in heaven I think..

Heres margarita (black), sunny, next to her and Otto Bisquit all snoozing by the fire...Margarita hates being in the house, but come winter or a good blizzard and she is all over coming in to visit and doesn't like going out to the garage period...end of story...all 3 outdoor babys are like this..but who can blame them and we certainly love having them all in with us getting cozy...

here is Nap-a-Pop on the couch..he is such a good house kitty...just wish the indoor girls would leave him alone...

Here is Millie with her stuffed likeness sitting in the window on a doll looking at the snow...

Here she is with the kitty on her back...isn't she cute!!!she looks thrilled too...:)

Here is Stanley Manley getting some milk foam from my hubbys coffee..look at his chin...

He too looks thrilled that mom is taking his photo and blogging about his "milk chin"....thats what mamas do...embarass their children...

Here is pody Ann going out in the snow...she loves going out..but the snow kicked her little butt and she didn't stay out really long...

here are my wrought iron kittys getting loaded with snow..from the front they are little blobs..

I am grateful we did not lose power so far and that is just fine by me..we always lose power if some one farts or burps around we are lucky especially with this nasty weather...we are going through wood like crazy..we loaded the box up this monday and it is gone hopefully we will get a break so we can fill it back up...Take care....:) hope you are all enjoying your family and friends this week..have a wonderful christmas!!!!:)

  6. Hi Gina,
    Everything there looks so beautiful covered in snow. Your kitties look like they are all settled in for a long winter's nap. I would of like some snow instead of temps below zero with a high wind warning.
    Still have not gotten my package...hoping it comes today or tomorrow. I'll let you know.
    I have a picture of the other sheep with the sampler on it posted on my blog.
    Got to go make cookies now with Josie.
    Hugs, Cindy

  7. What beautiful photos! I love the view from the Kitchen window with the wreath - that would be my Christmas card!
