a snowy day to start February


We woke up this morning with more snow.
So beautiful!

Rocky Mountains, USA

One of the things I love about living in Colorado
is the snow!

Frozen Snow Queen

Okay, that's not really me above,
but she looks way-cool pretty!!
Here's a snow castle for her to live in...

Castle Sharfenstein, Germany

...and here are some friends to play in the snow
with her...

Dog loving the snow!

Elephant snow fun in the Berlin Germany zoo

Of course, not all cats enjoy the snow...

sometimes for good reason -

I find if you dress properly for the cold
it's a lot more fun to be in!

Have you ever made a snow castle?
or a snow fort?
Here's a snow forest!

McCall's Winter Carnival, Idaho

...and of course, a princess to live there...

...her court to entertain her...

The Nutcracker ballet

...and her jesters...

Here is one of the palace guards...
