We Be BLiZzARDiNG

Well it finally happened, Christmas threw up in my backyard! We have been having 100km/hr winds and horizontally slicing snow that would put speeding cars on the 401 to shame! I have stayed inside as much as possible to avoid getting my face whipped by the pelting snow. And stuck inside all I seem to want to do is bake cookies and burn candles that remind me of Christmas. Really this is just too soon, I mean it's at least 3 months away! White just doesn't make me feel like Halloween. I need that rotting orange colour of the grass to get me into the mood for that spooky holiday!

Even "someone" wanted to be inside! The winds were just too hard core for him! Inside, bored he shredded every piece of cardboard he came across! Here I am trying to confiscate a FEDEX box that he had found. What a baby!

Here is the baby expressing his displeasure of the weather conditions and then his happiness when I let him inside.


I did go out to get a few pictures (including my flip flops in the snow just for Tina! Is it the exposure of toes that you don't like?). Here I am braving the blasting winds, I can't even keep my eyes open for the 1/200th of second it took to take this picture!

Here is poor Norman demonstrating what happens when Jen gets stuck inside for too long. Don't worry he forgave me. I was only doing a little preparation work for his Halloween costume...just kidding I don't think he will want to be there, even if the candy was made of Tuna.

That cat costume is hilarious! I can't believe you're getting that kind of weather already. We have snow here now and Colby went to school today in snowpants! No wind though thankfully, not yet anyways. And, it's not the exposed toes that drive me, it's the sound they make when you walk in them.. the flip-flop. It drives me batty! LOL

Norman you had better start your own escape tunnel in your litter box. It is only October and she has already started to dress you up! Who knows what she will do to you come January!

And of course I absolutely love Normans outfit! Now that I have a baby the kitties are getting a reprieve as I dress Hunter up instead.

Norman does not look happy. But he does look manly, in a feline kind of way.
