It snowed on Christmas! How rare and beautiful to see so much snow over the long holiday weekend. Below are a few photos from around the farm on Christmas Day, as well as the day after Christmas when even more snow fell.
Only a few inches had fallen by the end of the day, just enough to create some excitement in the neighborhood. We could hear kids nearby, screaming with excitement, likely immersed in a snowball fight. We left holiday treats for the barn animals: peanuts for Patch, apples and a carrot for Reggie, and kitty treats for Barney the barn cat.
We were not disappointed! When we awoke on Dec. 26, it was a winter wonderland out there with 11 inches of snow.
The cars are covered and the snow is too high to try to drive them. We could probably take the truck out if we really wanted to, but I doubt we'll go anywhere today. It's a good day for building a snowman.
