Libby Loves the Snow!

Well it wasn't a white Christmas in 2011 for us here in Forest, but December 27th brought down a bit of the fluffy stuff; wet and fluffy that is.  After a bit of shopping in the morning and polishing off left overs in front of the TV in the afternoon, we thought we really better get outside for a walk!

It was a gorgeous night and big fluffy wet flakes were gently falling and we wanted to see how Libby would react in the snow.  Needless to say - she Loved it!  My camera couldn't keep up with the speed of her excitement, but the following pictures will give you a bit of an idea of how much she enjoyed it.  I can't wait until the snow is a 'dryer' and a little deeper - then I hope to get some really good snapshots of her.

Getting ready to head out for our walk.
I told you the flakes were big !
I am surprised that the camera even
captured this shot as clear as it is. 
You can tell by how her feet are positioned how fast
she's flying through the snow!
She's loving this!
She kept stopping to get the snow balls off her feet.
She'll be wishing she wore the puppy boots I bought her for Christmas. 

Well the snow was thick and wet, but very pretty against the night sky.  And just watching Libby have so much fun was so worth it.

Holly called and said she made it home ok, but it wasn't a pleasant 2.5 hour drive. She's thinking that snow tires are a good idea after all and I'm hoping it's clear for the morning commute back to work tomorrow.  The only really good thing about going back to work tomorrow is that I won't be tempted to sit and each the left over Christmas cookies all day.  (Well - that - and the paycheck!)

Happy Holidays everyone.

We, too, had snow last night but, our flakes don't wear glasses....woooooops sorry just sayn's all.
(actually come to think of it,,,most of ours do, lol)
It was a beautiful evening for a walk and it can flake right off now!. Naw, it is actually one of my favorite times of year, well except for the end of May. Cheers to a fun rest of the year to all of you and may all of your dreams come true in 2012.
Be always in stitches.
