Since the day after Christmas, we have received our fair share (and more) of that cold white stuff they call snow! We didn’t mind, because Daddy was home on vacation and we had no urgent place to go, so we actually got to enjoy the snow falling all around us. Sure, we had to shovel, shovel and shovel almost every day, pulled the snow blower out too since the snow was quite heavy at times, but it was beautiful to see how it covered EVERYTHING white. We surely put our snow pants to work as they kept us warm, actually too warm, as we scraped the driveway and sidewalk for the third, fourth…uh we lost track of how many times, but nonetheless, we kept the cold at bay and away from us.
Both Nikita and Bella are having the time of their lives playing in the snow. We still have to teach Bella to not eat the yellow snow, as she has not figured that one out yet, but she loves to run and jump in the snow, and stops to take huge bites of snow when she gets tired. Nikita on the other hand, is a digger. When she heads outside, she finds the huge snow mounds that we pile up and starts her hole brigade. Dig, dig, dig, as the snow goes flying through her legs, then her head disappears into her treasured hole that she has made. When she pulls her head out, she is covered in snow and stands there so proudly on top of the snow mountain as to say “look what I did“!
What is priceless in the end? When you find your little furry four-legged kids passed out on the floor, rejuvenating for their next trip outside. (which will most likely be in 20 minutes, phew)
We spent our New Year’s Eve safe at home, watching it snow (again) and were glad that we were not out on the town driving on the snow covered roads. We enjoyed our time with our dogs and watched the two hour special in memory of Dick Clark. We had all the good intentions of watching the ball drop at midnight, but like every other new years arrival, we missed it, as we fell asleep. We did, however, get woken up when both Nikita and Bella started growling at the fireworks that were going off in the neighborhood. We chuckled, and fell back asleep. All in all, a great and wonderful end to another year with all the people we love, and our special four-legged kids by our side. Priceless.
