Winter finally came

Oh, happy day! It snowed over night. :) I'm only sad that I didn't get to see the snow actually fall though. I love watching the flakes come down. But it feels like the winter I've been wanting has finally come.

I took a bunch of pictures of the snow at my in-laws house, and their dog was a pretty good object to include in the pictures.

I know... it doesn't really look like snow. It looks like somebody tripped with a bag of powdered sugar. :P Angel wasn't too happy that I was making her sit still - but she kept trying to lick the camera!

I had a lot of fun watching Angel play in the snow. I couldn't believe she was willing to touch it and all, since she hates baths so much.

She also hates the rain and is pretty miserable when the monsoon season comes. But snow? It was her best friend! She ate it, rolled in it, pawed it, rested in it, lovely wonderful snow. :)

I had to give her a good toweling afterwards, so she wouldn't stink up the house too bad.

But I'm really thrilled with the camera my parents gave me, it takes fantastic pictures!!

Probably for my father-in-law's birthday or Christmas I'll print up a bunch of pictures of Angel and the snow. Dare I call them "Snow Angel"? ;)

For Christmas 2007, I gave my FIL a picture of Angel in a frame. A simple gift... but when he opened it, he looked teary-eyed and gave me a hug. (Let's put it this way, nobody else got a hug for their gifts to him!) I know Angel really means a lot to him, but not too many people will show affection towards her.

My husband's happy now too. I can't whine that I'm waiting for winter to come. :D Seriously, it hit 73 last week and I was kinda grumpy about it cuz I had worked up a good sweat. It's a crime to sweat in the winter! :P
