Another snow day....

So it snowed last night again and we woke up to a beautiful day. School, libraries, etc were closed, so we rushed outside right after breakfast to play. Look Mike, we got a dog!

So quiet and peaceful. No snow plows out here...

Chateau Coombes

Millie enjoying a sleigh ride with neighborhood friends!

I am definitely in the Christmas mood this year after our early season snowfall. It is only supposed to reach a high of 13 tonight. Brrrrr. Enjoying every moment, cuz I heard we can except rain on Thanksgiving which sounds very sad and dreary.

Gorgeous day and very cold, 23 F.

Snow Day!

We were so excited when it started snowing on Sunday. When we woke up Monday, pre-school was canceled and the snow continued to fall on and off all day long! So much fun!

Now if only we had a few hills in town for sledding...maybe we'll head up to the ridge if the snow stays for a while. It is supposed to only be a high of 26 tomorrow (Tuesday)!

Piglets at the farm

Millie and I love getting to visit Fox Hollow Farm. Every once in a while, they are open to the public and we head on over to Issaquah to check out all the cute animals and play in the front lawn which usually has toy trucks to ride and bouncy balls. This time they had 5 day old piglets.

They were so cute!

Millie also loved the baby Maine Coon cats.

She got to pet some horses....

and even play with this little creature...a minature horse, maybe??

Then back home to get smoked out by the neighbors chimney....

Halloween was fun!

Millie helping me carve our pumpkins into jack o lanterns. We saved the seeds for roasting and I was so happy to find that Millie loves them and gobbles them up like a little squirrel.

Getting ready for the big night of trick or treating with our fellow dragon, Minnie mouse and princess friends. It was so warm on Halloween day. So glad we did not have to dress in layers. Beautiful sun all day long!

I wish this was my front porch. What Halloween spirit in the neighborhood. Next year we will go crazy!
