Catching Up...

We have been one big block of ice! It warmed up and rained 
and rained a lot! so we have lost at least half of our snow.
there is still a lot of ice. I would take 2 feet of snow over all of this ice.

When my brother was here at Christmas we drove down the Kanc
a road that winds through the White mountains of NH.
Lots of hiking and beautiful views.

We went on the Santa train with our Miss B just before Christmas,I love this picture she is
telling Santa what she wanted for Christmas. Now before she goes to bed she
asks her parents every night if it is Christmas eve. Gotta love that magic. 

As a Christmas present for my brother My husband made him this
bird house out of wine corks.

As you can see the roof and the bottom is made out of an old wine box.
He carried it on the plane and when he got it home there was a lot of interest in this
really great birdhouse.

And look who paid us a visit today!!! I can just smooch 
that little face forever.
I hope your week has been a good one. I have plans with my Thursday 
friend to go snow shoeing in the woods on the full moon this week.
I am hoping it is not to icy.

I'm glad that you lost some snow too but that ice is something else. It's still thawing and I don't mind that at all.

What a creative mind that husband of yours. Such a great idea for a bird house.

Oh that Miss B. looks some charming and sweet. Love that long braid.

Stay safe and warm Cathy and enjoy your snowshoeing trip to the woods. Wishing you a clear sky.

Cute pics! I'm not a wine drinker but the bird house is really cool and probably could make you guys some bucks if your hubby would make more! Wine drinking is so popular now and Wine Bars are springing up...even here in Ashland one is opening tomorrow. Enjoy your day out in the elements and I do hope the ice is gone! I too would rather face snow any day than ice! Ice does keep us busy in surgery however...

How sweet is that cork birdhouse, wow!!!!!! Enjoy your moonlight walk, sounds beautiful, Francine.

Saundra said...

Agreed I'd take snow over ice any day, but it is pretty in the picture.

OMG, I LOVE that birdhouse!!!!!! I've plenty of corks saved and wondered what to do with them. But in all honesty I'm sure I'd not have the patience OR knowledge to do the birdhouse.

That pic of Miss B with Santa is soooo cute! Love that birdhouse!

Kim said...

Wow, best birdhouse ever! I have a lot of wino friends (hehe) who would appreciate that.
Miss B continues to get cuter. Be careful snow shoeing. I bet there is still a lot of ice around
