Ariel is in her Santa's helper outfit, and
Coco is in her purple sweater .

I went out to walk the pups today and saw these wonderful bird tracks. As soon as we finished our walk, I took the pups in and dried their little paws with a warm towel that I keep on the heater vent while I walk them. And they promptly went and layed on the back of the couch in their little coats to warm up.
We received about 6 inches of snow last night. It was so delightful to see the snow falling down like glitter on the frozen prairie.
I felt like I was in one of those gorgeous snow globes and it had just been shook up. That is how hard the snow was falling last night. The only bad thing is that is hazardous to travel in these conditions. It had rained and sleeted for hours before the snow came.
I would like to leave you with a quote this evening:

The holiest of all holidays are those

kept by ourselves in silence and apart,

The secret anniversaries of the heart...

_ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
