Winter Wonderland!!

Well, as much as it is a sure is pretty!! It snowed here over the weekend but not too much and it just slowly melted. Early this AM we woke to chatty patty (lily in her crib) and lightening and thunder...oh and SNOW. Did you know it could lightening and thunder for snow? It was a pretty decent downpour and it keeps coming. We had to cancel our plans to go to Portland for a few days to have early Christmas with the Portland peeps. Now for those of you in the midwest or east, who deal with this every day, let me explain a few things about Seattle. First, this doesn't happen that often. Second we have big hills. Third, because we are so "green" the city does not salt the roads, they plow main roads and sand but no salt. Therefore the snow falls, people don't know how to drive in it, and it slushes around then freezes to solid ice. Fun huh? Alex takes the bus to work so he has been able to get in..although I am thinking tomorrow will be an ice block so a "work at home day" might be in order. They have pre-empted all TV shows to do "weather watch" news for 8 hours straight. Oh well I need to clean anyway. Here are a few pics from our house and of our adventure walk to greenlake. Lily was pretty unimpressed, although she did giggle a little. She has taken to true belly laughs and high pitch screams....for Winston only!! Nice huh? We get a few courtesy laughs here and there but nothing like the dog gets out of her.
Winsty guards the house from Frosty the snowman.
Down at the lake. Lots of walkers who didn't make it to work or school.
Braving the snow. So beautiful. Lily's cheeks were super rosy!
Winsty tries to catch a snowflake in his mouth. He is so clever. He actually LOVED the snow and would have walked/played all day.
He saves some snow in his ears and paws to melt in the house. He actually tried to chew the snowballs out of his paws! Silly pup. He is now curled up on the couch as I sip my pumpkin spice coffee and baby sleeps!
Lily tries to do her first snow angel.
Winter is beautiful...oh wait, it is still Fall for one more day.
