Winter Wonderland

This is what I woke up to this morning!
This is at 7:00 a.m. and the sun was just coming up over the lake.  I'm standing at my back door.  I couldn't walk out any further because the snow was too deep and I only had my slippers on.
I was up at 7 because my little Fergie

as cute as he is, had just peed on my bedroom floor, which, by the way, is newly carpeted.  He's three years old, but just never potty trained well at all.  I was so mad at him and practically threw him out the front door and then saw the fresh, new, virgin snow that fell during the night.  It was still sort of dark out and with the sun coming up it was just so pretty.  Luckily for Fergie, my mood changed from mad to happy and content.
We already had about 7 inches on the ground, and now with the new layer it's up to about a foot.
I'm so glad I got my groceries yesterday and almost finished my Christmas shopping.  It was so cold yesterday, and I didn't get home until 5:00 in the dark and I wasn't looking forward to carrying all those bags in the house.  Well, I was pleasantly surprised by Hubby at the door ready to carry in all the bags.  As I walked in the front door, I saw that he had a blazing fire in the fireplace and all the Christmas lights on!  Oohh, that felt so good to my body and my soul.
This is what Christmas should look and feel like!  I wish I could wrap this up and give it as a present to all that don't get to experience Christmas and the Holidays like this.  I really do appreciate it and try not to take it for granted!

Glad that Fergie ordered up some snow! He's an awful cute little guy to be doing such deeds. What a sweet bed he has, too.

Beautiful snowy morning in your back yard:) Love it and that sun coming up is breathtakingly gorgeous! The Hubby is a keeper!

I think that little puppy is too cute, even though she had an accident on the new carpet:(Have a blessed day my friend, HUGS!

My word, what a gorgeous view you have! My little Yorkies are three years old. And they aren't properly potty trained either. Despite the fact that I've worked on that the entire three years!

Hope that snow keeps your mood happy and light, as long as it lasts! It's always so fresh and pristine for the first few days, anyway.

Beautiful scene providing you're indoors. Aah poor Fergie. Guess he didn't want to do it in his gorgeous bed!
