Take A Picture Tuesday--Snowy Winters

So....continuing with my new format....Tuesday is now Take A Picture Tuesday. I'll put some photos on my blog each Tuesday and talk a little about them. Some may be old, some may be new.

First, in honor of Inland Empire Girl's birthday tomorrow on January 9th, here is a picture of her and I during the big snow of 1968-1969. I saw one day on Huckleberries Online comparing this winter to that winter. I'm not sure this winter can compare quite yet. At least here in Kellogg. I was in kindergarten that year. See the picket fence in this picture. That was in the backyard. I remember the snow got so high that I could walk on the snow over the fence to the neighbors yard. Now, that was a lot of snow.

Tonight, I took some pictures of the infamous backyard tri-color beech tree out in the snow. Here's some shots from our back deck.

I just want to know how we were outside in the snow without gloves or mittens! Mom must have been at PTS or on the phone with Y.M. tntl.

That is a GREAT looking snowperson.
I am impressed.

I love the picture of the two of you! And what a great snowman--very tall. Ours always seem to end up squat and fat!

IEG--Wonder where the gloves are. Maybe we just took them off for the picture.

Go Figure--Yes, it is pretty good, hug.

Katrina--It is a fun picture, and a great snowman to boot!!
