A Snowy Christmas And Some Moose Pics, Too!

Merry Christmas to all my blog friendies! ♥ Not many of us have snow this year so I thought I'd upload a BUNCH of snowy farm pics from LAST YEAR and give you a white Christmas! This opening pic is taken from the top of my looooong drive way.From my bedroom window. My flower beds were all comfy under their blanket of snow.

Ooo! Looking toward the highway.

Yikes! Right outside my bedroom window! Rookie the teen aged moose had just finished "marking his territory". I truly think he had a crush on me. ☺ Rookie visited us frequently last Winter and he was bigger every time! (Don't mind that tipped over chair. We do cool things like that around here.) ☺

Here's Rookie contemplating a ride on the rope swing!

He was a bit smaller and cuter here. This is right after he was looking in my living room window at me.

I think he missed his mama. He had just turned when I snapped this pic. He sure scared me when I walked in the living room!

Our dog, Lexi stopped chasing Rookie after she was "charged" by him. It was scary. We were sorry when we had to thoroughly chase Rookie away for good but he was getting too big and unpredictable to be in the yard with children around. (And me!)

Lovely, snowy fir trees!

I occasionally hike to the top of this wheat field. It's steeper than it looks!

I love the Winter shadows on the snow.

The empty horse pasture that will hopefully have a horse in it some day!

We had a LOT of snow last year!

Another pic through my bedroom window.

I hope you enjoyed the snow! Merry Christmas one and all! You've made my life richer and sweeter!

Rookie sure was a cutie.

Posting photos of snow, some people are just sick, sick, sick.

What gorgeous pictures of your snow from last year. We're dreaming of a white Christmas at our house too. It's unusually green in West MI. We'll just have to enjoy our paper snowflakes.

Have a lovely Christmas!

Dear Holly, WOW your snowy pics are gorgeous and I can't tell you how much I enjoyed them since we do not get that kind of snow here. Some icy flurries predicted but not much.
Love Rookie the moose. He sure is a big teen. Glad Lexi showed who's boss in your front yard.

Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and many blessings in the new year.
Thank you for your friendship and sweet visits. See you in 2012.
Love to you and yours, Celestina Marie

Merry Christmas Holly. The pictures are just beautiful. We have to leave Texas to see that much snow. In fact in South Texas we do not get any snow. Thank you so much for sharing.

Merry Christmas Holly! As soon as I read the word Hoosier in your e-mail to me I hurried right over. What a treasure you have given me in this snowy post. Oh Holly! You live in the most beautiful setting ever! I have such a smile on my face that you have gotten your own Hoosier to enjoy every day. It is the perfect spot for all the collectibles we have all come to love when visiting here. Smile again! I am so happy for you! PS I am anxiously awaiting my own copy of my daughter's wedding photos from Hawaii to share as a last thank you for all who have followed her story. They are the most joyous photographs, and I can't wait for you to see them. Soon, I hope!
Wishing you a wonderful New Year. Always, Elizabeth

Yikes, a moose! Pretty cool though and I bet you're glad you captured him in pictures:)

Hope you had a very merry Christmas!


Lisa said...

Holly you are the only person I know with a moose ;) It would be scary to have him so close and not know what he would do.
Hope you Christmas was wonderful!'
Hugs, Lisa
(silly I would NEVER delete you ;)
