And my lesson? Scented pinecones don't taste as good as they smell. Enough said.
The following pictures are for our Auntie Sniggy, down in Georgia! She wanted to surround herself with memories of Kansas in the snow. Mom stuck the camera out the back door and shot these:
That was straight out the door to the deck. The next one is a little to the right:
Kansas isn't normally that bleak-looking, it was just a grey day! Here are a couple night shots!
Cool lights, huh? I tasked the boys to help Mom and Dad put them up. Inside the screened-in part of the deck, we have a little tree on the table, too. Here's what that looks like at night:
Our dear Aunt Sniggy is a great friend to my mom. One of Mom's best memories of Aunt Snig is the two of them walking their pups together in the snow while Dad was deployed on Desert Storm. These pix of us from yesterday are sure to bring a smile to Auntie Snig's beautiful face!

Then Zim decided to make a snow angel. Check out the look on his face. I think he forgot about his shaved tummy!
Yikes, that's cold!
Perhaps we should have posted that as another lesson learned. Ha roo roo roo!
Tail wags to all and snowy Kansas wishes to Auntie Sniggy,
