A Snowy February

We've had some snowy weather in our part of Missouri this month.  It hasn't amounted to as much as in other places in the U.S. but it has been pretty.  Here are some photos out our window

 The snow has been quite heavy at times and the sky dark.  Fortunately, we haven't had more than 3-4 inches with either storm

 Doesn't the snow make ordinary things look extraordinary?

 J and Sallie coming in for lunch.  

 You can see how big the snowflakes were!  We have an expression around here when they're that big - "hamster-sized snowflakes."  LOL! 

 The cardinals (both female and male) and woodpeckers visited the bird feeder.

I find sunrises and sunsets the most dramatic in the winter, don't you?  These photos were taken facing east early one morning.

I'm also celebrating a special birthday this month!  Jack and his mommy and daddy has us over for a delicious steak dinner. 

I hoped to share a new sewing project I'm excited to start but this post is long enough.  I'll share it next time.  Wishing everyone sunny skies and warm weather!  I know I'm ready for both!

First of all...those pictures are wonderful! And you captured your snow days perfectly. Girl...that looks like a lot of snow to this old Florida gal! Love it! And Happy birthday to you this month. This month I too will be celebrating a birthday but I will pass you up by one year on the 18th. LOL! Boy does time seem to go by in a hurry the older I get. Baby Jack is growing so much. I just can't believe it! Happy birthday dear Zenda. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

Well Happy Birthday Zenda! Great pictures of the snow and I especially loved those morning sky photos! We’ve had a few mornings like that too and I just marvel at it!


Oh my goodness the Winter images are gorgeous and so serene. I love the cardinals going to the cute red bird feeder. Stunning morning in the snow too.
Your little boy is adorable ! Happy birthday dear Zenda, even if it's belated I always celeb each's birthday month.

The snow is so beautiful, and I love the cardinal with the birdhouses.

You are right, Zenda!! Every item from the grasses to the trees looks so beautiful draped in white snow. Look at the sky that encompasses every hue of color from yellow to crimson. The cardinals and the woodpeckers have become even more beautiful. Thanks, Zenda for compiling a beautiful album. This has made my day.

That is so much snow and a beautiful sunset. We don’t get so much snow in my part of the country. Winter is long gone and the summer is setting in. And yes, happy birthday Zenda. Let god give you many such wonderful birthdays.
