Ten Day {Before, During, and After Snow}

Here are ten pictures from the last few days including all this crazy snow I alluded to.  I hope to be back up and sewing soon (still coming to you from no power; thank goodness for generators for the basics!!).

Sammy made her first trip to the Home Depot.  And has a lot of training to go, but seemed to love every moment of it!


I made Candy Corn sugar cookies for a Halloween party that never happened.  Snowed out.  We've enjoyed them either way.  Here is the site that shows the how to.


The snow started early on Saturday and the ground and trees were covered within an hour.  Still pretty at this point.


Snuggled up with a fire to get through the storm.


Sammy's first snow!!   She was tickled at the idea of playing, running, and eating it!  Even catching flakes.  She sure knows how to enjoy a good storm!


Katie looking adorable as she is covered in snow from playing.


Lost power which meant playing Monopoly by candlelight with the mister.  Sammy loved the game too as she tried to eat my properties and money. 


The next morning.  Sun was shining brightly... and rather beautiful.  But oh my goodness there are so many trees down, thirteen inches of snow, and a ton of clean up to do.  Not to mention that tree, a ninety foot oak, at the end of the drive is down on the power lines and over the driveway. 

Sigh.


But the sky and trees were so beautiful!!


And yet.  This big tree is causing a lot of work.  I'll feel better when it's all cleaned up and the power is restored.  At least our mailbox was spared.  See you all soon!!

I love that you're out of power but still posting to your blog. I would do the same. Good luck with the clean up. Guess the trick or treaters in your area are wearing snow pants today.

Oh dear! Hope you have power back soon. Wow! 13 inches in October. I can't imagine what the remainder of winter has in store. Beautiful pictures.

Stunning pictures! That was quite some storm!!! All the snow clinging to the sides of trees (and trees with leaves still on them no less!). Hope the big tree gets removed soon so that you get your power back up.
Love the pictures of the "girls" playing in the snow. :)
Do the candy corn cookies compare to candy corn itself in flavour?

Wow Christie, you handled the October snow beautifully and your pictures make it look so inviting!! Especially the fire and the candlelight--love. We are just waiting so anxiously for the temps to dip and stay in the 50's so we can have an outdoor fire! The cookies look gooood btw...

Sorry that you are experiencing the power outage and I hope that you will have power back on soon. Sammy knows how to have fun in the snow and is great at sneaking out monopoly pieces what a corker. See you next week. Meanwhile, take care.

Hi Christie!

What a cute blog :-) Sammy is a cutie! I was confused there for a bit when you mentioned snow. Here is Israel it hardly feels like fall. No snow expected, except maybe in a few more months in the mountains. Lovely photos! :)
