Winter wonderland......

 We woke up to 12-18 inches of fresh snow on Christmas morning.....
 every thing looked magical......
 The boys have gone ice fishing the last two days and have caught their limits
both days.....and Mimi and cory have been having fun sledding at  friends houses.
I took some pictures in town of all the snow....I will share them next!

I had three moose in the yard yesterday and I totally forgot to take
pictures because it took an hour and a half to get Jerry back in the house
even a leftover piece of steak wouldn't get his attention,
 that poor little moose family.
Thank God they looked at him like, would you please be quiet!

I hope you all had a lovely Christmas!

I finished taking the tree down yesterday, 
it gets so dry with the wood stove.

Do any of you have fabulous New Year plans?

Take care, 


  1. poor moose! :)

    love the golden light, then blue light, then shades of all in these!

  2. Love the nature pictures. I have had a great Christmas time. Tomorrow we are travelling up in the mountains to celebrate new years eve with som fiends in their cabin. Happy new year to you and your family. D

  3. Hello Heidi!
    It's so nice I can take a short trip to Alaska through your blog! All that snow!
    Nothing special planned for New Year's Eve or Day...i'm hopingthat something good may come along last minute!
