“The real things haven't changed. It is still best to be honest and truthful; to make the most of what we have; to be happy with simple pleasures; and have courage when things go wrong.” ~ Laura Ingalls Wilder

A Snowy Valentine's...

 ...yesterday afternoon

...last night


I got my camera and went out for a little walk around our house this morning.
    
footprints  :-)
 
  
Our backyard...

    
Care to swing?

 
Or hang some clothes?

  
One of our Rose of Sharon bushes



  I love snow covered fences.♥


  a little stream behind our house

  The snow from the trees was melting and dropping in the water. 
You can see the little ripples.

   
So pretty with the sun shining through the trees

 Such a funny doggie we have. Lilly *loves* the snow! 
When there's snow outside, she's scratching to go out about every hour so she can play.
That is one spoiled pup right there!

   
Katie made this sweet wreath. I just love it!
 I baked the dough hearts. She did the rest.

I hope you're all having a happy Valentine's Day. 
Thanks for stopping by. :-)

Take care,
~Melanie

  6. Beautiful photos! I've heard it's been a long winter back there, and we've had the mildest one in years. My kids have been complaining about not having any snow, lol. Thank you for the sweet message welcoming me back to blogland :)
    Blessings,
    Marcia
