Like My New Shoes?

Aren't these pretty? These are my snow shoes. Yeah. Again.

It all started like this.

The snow was pretty.

My pretty dillys seemed to be OK.

My little dillys seemed to be OK.

Then it got ugly. I had to trudge through the stuff. And there was no where to hide. Even under this tree.

Oh boy. This ceased to be fun a while ago. My shoes are starting to form. See?

Geez. The peeps can't keep up with all the snow clods on my skirt.

Geez. The peeps can’t keep up with all the snow clods on my skirt and between my toes. Ouch.

Pretty. NOT. I was having such a good time in the snow yesterday. Then, this happened. Grrrrr.

Thanks for the ride, peep. I don't think I could have made it another step.

Thanks for the ride, peep. I don’t think I could have made it another step. What would I do without my peeps? They kept saying things like, “He’s such a good sport,” and, “Hope his little feet are OK,” and “Don’t worry, I’ll give him an elevator ride back home.” To which, I say, “Sweet. Thanks, peeps.

    In the “distant” past when our peeps lived in snow country with scotties the ‘snow balls’ were fun to get off….. she would fill the tub with a couple of inches of tepid water and some rubber toys then ‘plop’ the scotts in to play.. Walla~~~~~ no snow balls & a play time!!!!
    Snow toes can hurt =/ ~~~~~ L&M
