Let it Snow, Let it Snow, LET IT SNOW!!!

.

"Oh, the weather outside is frightful,"


(Well, maybe not frightful, exactly - - - I love snow)


(And Fisherhubby loves to dress up in his polar express gear
And play with his big boy, gasoline powered toy)


"But the fire is so delightful!"
(Especially when the tree and village lights are on
And I'm wearing my comfy Badger Jammies
And funky stripey socks)


"And since we've no place to go - - -"
(And can stay by the fire
Wrapped warmly in a leopard skin snuggie
Watching football, NFL AND NCAA, on the big screen)

"Let it snow, let it snow, LET IT SNOW!!!"

(With apologies to Sammy Cahn for
eclectisizing his lyrics)

Sound very cozy indeed! Love the fireplace!

I'm sure sorry about yesterday's Colt loss though. And the Saints! What's up with that????

Martin LaBar said...

Looks like Fisherhubby has a lot to enjoy.

Well, no snow here, but cold. I'd still like a fire! :( Oh, well, I'm too lazy to build one by myself! My husband actually had the gall to go back to work today!

Ahhhh!!! time to sit back and just enjoy... Life is grand, isn't it!!!!
Hope your New Year is just as blessed as 2009!!!

Tonja said...

I have a fire going...but no snow, I'm afraid. You sound mighty cozy to me....enjoy!

The the snow crystals illuminated - if you put a little heart shaped filter over your camera lens, you can turn them all into hearts instead of circles. Oooh, wait -- Maybe you can make a football shape!!!

If it has an engine they are happy. Simple things these male creatures.

Just Breathe said...

Sounds like home to me, what a great way to spend a snowy day!

Nezzy said...

Oh sweetie, ya'll can keep it. I dislike (HATE) doin' chores 'round the Ponderosa in the snow. We just had a dusting for Christmas but we have another storm moving in the middle of the week in the Ozarks.

It looks like ya'll had a blessed Christmas. Here's wishing you a wonderful New Year!!!

Ann said...

I did it----and I'm proud. LOL

Keetha Broyles said...

Ann, you GO girl!!!

Amy said...

Looks fantabulous!!! I'll bring the caramel vanilla lattes in clear glass cups with snowflakes etched on them and homemade cookies:)

Brenda said...

I could feel the warmth!

LV said...

That is the best way to spend your time with a snow like that. We had snow, but nothing compared to yours. Take care.

Dawn said...

Ain't Christmas Break great! Enjoy your comfy seat by the fire and tv for another week!

Dawn said...

And aren't you glad you're not running the snow blower and that you don't need gas powered toys?

Cindy said...

Even with a yrs. worth of snow this month alone, I too sing, "let it snow". But, I may be cocky as we own a marvelous black Chevy Silverado Z71 with 4WD!
Aren't these grand days with the football. I'm in heaven!

Cass @ That Old House said...

OK now THAT is what the season is all about (well, other then the religious stuff and all that!) -- it's about kicking back AFTER the 25th, with comfy clothes and the tree lit and little piles of presents here and there, and leftover cookies (especially leftover cookies -- they don't have to be homemade) -- and SLIPPERS (I love slippers), AND knowing that your husband is outside clearing the snow, and you are not.

Sweet.

And I am leaving my stuff up and proudly Christmas-y till the 6th -- but then, we don't decorate till almost mid-December.

Happy New Year!
Cass

Dixie said...

Oh Keetha that snow is just beautiful... and I'm so happy that it's yours and not mine...

note: we do not own ANY snow blowing equipment here in south Texas!

new year blessings. Dixie

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Oh how snuggly! And Badger jammies to boot! You are such a Wisconsinite living in the wrong state Keetha! Happy New Year my friend, Cindy

Gerson y Betsy said...

Oh, Keetha, you make me SMILE!

Aren't white Christmasses the best?

CRY said...

I had a wood fireplace growing up and I loved it so much.
I used to go 4-wheelin with my parents and siblings to get wood in the mountains.
I was sad when we got rid of it, I like yours in the background of your snuggie

ashley said...

Our gigantic snow storm of last week (26" at the beach!) has faded away to nothing. Boo. Hiss. I love the snow!
