We received an early Christmas gift of a snowstorm this year. We haven’t had this much snow in a few years, so we are going to be sure to enjoy it. Unfortunately, this storm also brings bitter cold – double digits below zero Fahrenheit, plus the windchill. Our furs are good, so we can still be out and play for short stints. It is truly a winter wonderland outside right now.
All of us take turns playing out in the fluff. It is Nelson’s first real winter experience with snow and cold. He is totally in love with this weather and races around like a crazy boy!
Olivia is also pretty nuts about all the snow and the invigorating cold air to go along with it. It seems that the younger two siblings have the most fun in the cold and snow.
Poor Madison is short, so she gets cold quicker and we have to be sure she doesn’t disappear in the snow! We always blaze a trail from the stairs to the back of the yard when it snows. Madison tends to stay on the trail when there is a lot of snow. Smart girl she is!
Even though I am the oldest, I love snow and I can run through it with anyone who challenges me. It is an early Christmas gift for all of us at this house.
Olivia has been digging around in the snow and is totally snow covered but it doesn’t seem to bother her at all.
Nelson runs around checking on all of us and then he powers up to head off to his next point of interest. He is one funny guy!
Miss Madison can power up and create her own little snowstorm when she wants to. It looks like she is focusing hard on getting going.
The wind is blowing the leaves across the top of the snow. Olivia being a sports dog is using it as FastCAT practice. She is stretched out long, determined to catch a blowing leaf.
Here comes Nelson! He says he is all ears! You all know we love the flying ear photos we all seem to get with our floppys.
Olivia always has the best totally crazy eyes and it is no exception in the cold and snow! She specializes in funny expressions.
Look out, here I come for one more pass by! I’m flying, I’m flying!
We’ll leave you with a flying Nelson. It is his first real taste of a snowstorm and bitter cold. He loves it, so he is a true Minnesota hound! We look forward to a few days down the road when the temps are a bit warmer so we can be outside more and enjoy our early Christmas gift. Now on to things like gift wrapping and preparing food for Christmas Eve I guess.
We are joining our friends at Living Laughing and Barking in Our Backyard for their Nature Friday blog hop.
