Sweet Home....North Dakota?

This is our second winter in the sunny Gulf Coast. It is at this time of year that we are especially thankful the the Lord has brought us to where it rarely dips below freezing. Having spent the majority of our years in the Midwest where winters are filled with blizzards, shoveling snow, icy roads, and freezing extremities, we are still amazed whenever we can go outside in short sleeves this time of year. That being said, I'm sure it will seem strange that I picked January to visit my family in North Dakota, but that is just the way it worked out. I'm not wild about sub zero temps, but ANYTIME is a good time to see family. Thankfully, we were blessed with great weather the whole 2 weeks. What a great time we had! I have to say, I fell in love with North Dakota again and maybe these photos will show you why.

The lovely view from the front yard. We were excited to get some snow!
The backyard view was just as good!
Nothing like a North Dakota sunset!! Really!
My camera definitely does not do it justice.
