Merry Christmas 2 Days Late & Snow !

We ended up getting lots of snow here in Oregon , which is very rare where we live . This is the first time in the 20 years I have lived here that we have had this much snow all at once . These first 3 pics are of a fallen tree a few hundred feet up the road from where we live . As you can see the tree narrowly missed their van and it laid most of the way across the street . It took hours for them to get it all cleaned up and they and the people in the apartments across the street from the house did not get their power back til the next morning .

The rest of these pics are taken outside of our apartment complex , I took lots of pics , but these are some of my favorites . Along with all of this snow and being unable to leave the house , my DSL modem went out last Sunday and I had to wait til yesterday for the new one to arrive . But hey I got some cards made because I could not get online . I still need to take pics of them and edit them , then I should have some cards to post in a day or so .

Hope you all had a great Christmas and Thanks for dropping by !

Just something fun !

Your rainbow is intensely shaded blue, pink, and white.


What is says about you: You are a tranquil person. You appreciate quiet moments. People depend on you to make them feel secure. You are a good listener and your friends are glad to have you around in difficult times.

Will have some cards to post soon !

As a mother of a 14 year old son with autism I know how important it is to support autism research . My blogging friend Nancy Panko is a runner and is doing a run for OAR(Organization for Autism Research) and really needs your help in sponsoring her with donations . You can read more about it on her blog here and here where you can also make a donation . My family thanks you for supporting Nancy and this great Organization !
I will be back in a couple of days with something pretty to look at .
Thanks for dropping by and have a great day !
