Snowboy and Snowdog

One of the great attractions in Brian's mind for going to Washington for Christmas was SNOW - a commodity we don't usually see a lot of at Boulderneigh. Sunday we drove straight up to my dad's condo at a small ski resort north of Spokane. It was snowing when we arrived after dark, and both boy and pup had great fun romping in it until we made them come in for bed. I wasn't sure what Jackson would think of his first experience with snow, but he was obviously in his element from the git-go.

The next day was mostly sunny and GORGEOUS. I supervised the youngsters outside while my dad and Rick got in a few hours of skiing and Louise did some cleaning. Brian tubed, sledded, romped and flopped -

and Jackson met a couple new friends, most notably a cheerful Golden Retriever named Molly who lives on the mountain with her family year-round.

We left for Spokane that evening, and boy and puppy were happy to see that there was snow there as well.

That's it for now from . . .

What could be better? A boy, his dog and a bunch of snow, too cute!
Love the icicle picture too.
Happy New Year!

Scenes that beautiful could only have been created by God ~ but captured VERY nicely by Michelle!
