Snow days

We have been having some snow days around here. It started snowing Friday at about daylight and it snowed until just about daylight on Saturday. We had about 8 inches when it was done. It is so pretty to look at, but it does slow things up. We don't have all of the material for our next beds, and we have not been able to get out to get what we need. But the kids have been having a lot of fun. Of course what else would four kids do with 8 inches of snow. The little dog really does not love the 8 inches of snow though. He is only about 10 inches tall so he really just wants the world back the way it should be. Also the chickens do not love it. They have been hiding out under a shed and under the deck. Those are the only places where they can find dirt to scratch in.
It is really beautiful to look at though.

The cat has been cracking me up. He saw that the birds were coming to the feeder and he really thinks he should catch one. I think he thinks that he is hiding from them. He reminds me of the old cartoons with Sylvester and Tweety bird. Poor Sylvester never could quite make it work for him either. Of course the birds see the black cat in all the white snow and they are going to the other feeder.
