The First Snowfall

Hi Friends,

Well...here we are, the first snowfall of the season.  It's supposed to warm up again tomorrow so the snow will soon disappear.  That's okay with me, I'm not ready for it yet.  It sounds like it will actually be a nice weekend so I'm looking forward to that.

This house is just a few minutes down the road, isn't it gorgeous? 


There are actually quite a few field stone houses in this area.  They're all so beautiful to me.  We tried to buy a field stone house days before buying the one we have.  It wasn't meant to be I guess.

I love seeing the leaves on the fresh fallen snow.  Most of the trees are close to being bare now but some leaves are still hanging on.




Our yard.



My daughter told me that when Lily woke up this morning and looked outside, she was really excited and said "Poppa and Gammy got snow for me!"  She makes us laugh.

Thanks for dropping by, I always enjoy your visits!

  3. The first snow is always so magical! Lovely photos....I've always loved stone houses, too. I can remember some from my childhood in New England. There are very few here in WA state. Don't you just love those sweet things children say? So precious. xx Karen

  6. The first snowfall is always a little magical. You captured some nice pictures of the last of "Fall" and the start of what next will come "Winter". So happy your little grand thought you got the snow for her! Love the look of the field stone house!

  8. This was just a teaser for what is yet to come! There's still some on the ground here too but I expect it will be gone by the end of the day.
    There are a number of fieldstone houses along the lake which I've heard were built by a group of stonemasons years ago and many have a stone fence in front too.
    Have a good weekend.

  20. We had snow last week too, but it turned to freezing rain, then rain. I'm not ready for it either! That stone house is a beauty, and looks so nice with the old trees around it. I'm sure Lily says lots of fun things. I used to write down the funny things our kids would say, and sometimes I read them back to them for a good laugh.
    Enjoy your week!
