There's No Day Like a Snow Day

Hey my friends!

Take a look at our view when we woke up this morning...


A snow day in Louisiana!
(Please excuse the attire,
we Southerners aren't exactly equipped for these type days :)


Every creature in the farmyard came out to enjoy the white stuff.






Sights around the farm...






It's warm and cozy inside by the crackling fire with some hot coffee.
But the view was inviting.


Think spring, think spring :)




Hope you are staying warm inside by a fire, too.
Plans for traveling to Canton tomorrow aren't looking good :(

Have a safe weekend.
Blessings
Becky C

What a clever way to repurpose a chicken feeder...that is a feeder, right?
Snow on the ground is a rarity here in Dallas too...thank goodness.

I know, I think we might wait till Sunday to go to Canton, we want to hit the sale at Laurie Anna's! My daughter in McKinney went out on highway 75 yesterday about 5:00 and said it still was awful.

Those sweet little pigs look like they just don't know what to think!

Enjoy the rarity of southern snow. We seem to be getting it every year in OK now.

We're waiting to see if more snow will hit us today or just rain. I am so ready for spring although I must say your photos are lovely! Even to someone who's sick of seeing the white stuff!

It has been a nice change of scenery from what we normally get this time of year hasn't it. Seeing your farm under a blanket of snow made me think about and miss my old house in the country. My post from yesterday was full of pics from our neighborhood of little antique cottages though. I loved it there and I love it here. Sometimes change is good. Thanks for sharing the view. Oh and CLEVER window treatment!! Love it!

Becky I am in Texas and we have had cold freezing weather all week. The kids missed 4 days of school, you know how unusual that is! I had plans of First Monday today too and that didn't happen! One week ago it was 75 now 20, only in Texas. Love your farm!!!

michelle said...

Great pictures! That's how we look in SC too since it doesn't snow here often! Enjoy!

Amy Kinser said...

The snow looks wonderful, Becky. We were supposed to get some this weekend and it never came. Glad because my husband and little one had to travel to East TN to visit his dad who was in the hospital. It left me and the two big kids home alone. Didn't really want to get too snowed in or him have trouble traveling.

Your kids are adorable!

A Cottage Muse said...

I'm sure the kids had fun in the snow!! It is pretty to look at, for a while...we sure are wishing spring would get here lickety split!

Robin said...

Looks like everyone is having a great time playing in the snow! Looks like fun!

LLH Designs said...

So fun that you got snow! We were disappointed in Huston...all talk and no snow! It was my daughter's 10th birthday on our "snow day" that wasn't, so I gave her a pack of instant snow (the fake kind that you mix with water)!

I love your farm animals!

Happy weekend!

Your pictures left me wanting more and more.... and oh yeah...I want a Pig too!!!

Cheryl said...

I live in Louisiana too and all we got was cold and rain. : ( I am originally from the northeast, so I would of loved to have seen some snow even if it melted soon after.
Stay warm and safe.

I absolutely love your little pigs! They are the cutest. I also love your rustic chicken coop! I might need to get my husband to upgrade mine!

Valerie@chateaualamode.typepad.com said...

I have been visiting your blog and I wanted to tell you I love it. Love your post about the snow and your farm animals enjoying the snow...way cute!

pamq said...

Such a neat and tidy farm you have!

No wonder those pigs look so darn happy!

Hope your kids got to build a snowman and make snow angels....

T's Daily Treasures said...

I cannot believe you have that much snow in Louisiana. I was born in Mississippi and grew up in Texas and Louisiana all my life. We were lucky if we saw a few snow flurries or something that might stick to the ground for 30 minutes. My how weather patterns are changing! Enjoy your temporary winter wonderland. Best wishes, Tammy

Anne Marie... said...

Morning T said...

Hey girl, I heard you came by my Shoppe, so sorry I missed you! Remember that next month is our Spring Reveal, hope to see you there!

Love your snow pics....don't you love the way the snow makes everything look? See ya soon!

SSH said...

So glad I happend on your blog, such wonderful photos of the farm. If I cant be on a farm its the next best thing looking at all the wonderful farm blogs. You are truly blessed.

I will come back in a bit, bring some coffee, bundle up ( I see its cold there) and visit with the farm animals. You can toss me an ear of corn, a handfull of grain or some fruit while I am out there... I promise I will share it with the animals and not eat it... :)

June said...

Becky everything looks perfect at your place!!! I LOVE those little piggies. I just had a friend ask me if I wanted a couple of his piglets from a new litter, because the sow had too many to care for. I had to (reluctantly) decline, because I already have to get up twice a night with my son and I wasn't sure I could do the nightly feedings too. But oh, how I would have loved a couple of these darlings running around the place.
I hope you enjoyed your beautiful white stuff.
hugs to you from here...
