It was like a fairy tale, we woke up and there was a fresh blanket of snow on the ground.We were up at 5:45am,  so we actually had to wait till there was enough light to go out and take these pictures.

We were up even before any cars had traveled along the road

It snowed nearly continuously during this long weekend.

Getting ready for some football!

A twinkle of sunlight peeked out for about an hour

A warm house filled with love creates hearts on the window

The cul-de-sac Oakies

bunny prints?

Our 1st snowman at the cabin ever!!

The boys had to plow the cul-de-sac every day. Here's Jimmy doing his part.

Every year, the owners of this cabin in Mi Wuk/Sierra Park decorate their yard with a zillion lights. They start decorating in August and they actually open up their yard for the public to walk through. It's really amazing, they even pipe Christmas music though the 'snow garden'. Along with the 'gardens' they have a display of over 3000 Nutcrackers in a specially designed room with a large window to see them through. They do it just because they love it and love watching the smiles and the children's eyes light up whenever they walk though their yard. We went on New Years Eve after a wonderful dinner at La Morenita up in Coldsprings.

This reminds us of snowcones!
