Snow Days

It's been a cold one here on the plains of Oklahoma yet today the sun is shining and slowly the snow is melting although they are predicting more for the next few days.

I finished up the snowman rug I started in November just need to get it steamed, hemmed and bound. I used lots of scraps but it doesn't seem to have made a dent in the overflowing basket. I'm sure there is another rug or two to be found in that evergrowing pile of woolley worms.

Someone enjoyed there real first adventure in the snow!

Little did Mom and Dad know over 47 years ago that their lil' family would grow so big and this is just the grandkids!

The cows out at Dad's place were eager to see him coming with bales of hay!

The farmwork never ends but we do enjoy what we do. Christmas time was a time to remember the birth so long ago and the rewards we can have if we only trust and obey!

Happy Trails....Ginger
