ABC Wednesday - W

I guess the appropriate "W" word for today would be Winter.

This is from 1969, my sister and I with our snowman. We used coal from our "pot bellied" stove to decorate our snowman.


Last year's Winter Festival, in Jefferson, offered free rides with the dogs from "Muddy Paws" kennel.




A pair of mules, decked out in jingle bells, offer rides through town.


It is a time to keep our winter friends fed.




...time to play in the snow



...time to enjoy the beauty of nature...


...and then it is great to come inside for a hot drink or some baked treat!

Such a cute photo of you and your sister. And what a BIG snowman! I bet riding on a dogsled is tons of fun. I have watched but never ridden.

We certainly don't get to experience any of those activities here in the warm state of Texas. I would love to hop behind that dog sled and say, "Mush, mush, on you huskies!"

Great winter photos ~ thanks for sharing. Love the dog sled photos ... brings back great memories of when my Dad and brothers had sled dogs and we'd go riding. What fun that was! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Hello.
I never knew winter could be so much fun! I'm not the adventurous type, but I wouldn't mind the dogsled.
Great photos!
Thanks for sharing.
