Snow Day!

Hi, brrr... It's cold out there. Come in, put your feet by the fire. Here's a cup of cocoa. Do you take marshmallows? Now this is how you enjoy a good snow storm :)

This picture of my kids' playhouse during Storm Benedict reminds of Robert Frost's poem.

Of course I was not on a horse and Frost did not have to airbrush lawn furniture out of his picturesque poem. I don't think I did that bad if you don't look at it too long. Ok, look away.

Winter Storm Benedict paid a visit to Connecticut and dropped 2 feet of snow. Yes, 2 feet! I have been tweeting about how funny Scout is in the snow and thanks to some much needed reminders from a Twitter friend (wink @MarshaEpstein )I finally have a few pictures to share. Above my son Spencer takes a break, but Scout is still eager to run. Below Scout plows her way toward Spencer and my daughter Megan and then does her best super snow dog impression. I think she actually caught some air there! Look at those ears and her smile! lol

Today is another snow day (3 inches + freezing rain) and those evil weather people are predicting another foot (A FOOT!!) of snow for Friday. I'm charging my camera now for more pictures and stocking up on the hot cocoa.

Do you have any snow pics? I'd love to see them. Leave me a link in the comments and I'll check them out.
Thanks for stopping by. Stay warm.
Kristin : )


  1. Love these pictures, Kristin! They are full of heart and make winter look like fun. Love Scout playing with the kids. It's the stuff that memories are made of! Thanks for sharing.

    A cocoa toast to you.
    Hugs, Marsha

    What fun to look at your vivid, charming pictures! The snow looks soft and deep. You and your family are so cute! Thanks for the treat. I don't have any snow pics 'cause I live in San Diego, but I can live it vicariously through you (ha!).
    Stay warm and enjoy.

    Thanks for stopping by Marsha and thanks for encouraging me to get some of these memories documented in pics. Sometimes I get so caught up in our busy life that I forget to slow down and fully enjoy it.

    Response to Louis aka @batpoet:
    Thanks Louis for the nice comment. You are welcome to live vicariously through me as long as I can do the same. The thought of sunshine and sandy beaches is all that keeps my sane through these long winter days. Did I mention that my kids have had 4 days of school in the past 2 weeks?
