This is how our back yard looked this morning and the first day of spring will arrive tomorrow.  Naturally, we are thrilled to see the snow but mom and dad aren't!
We spent the day at Crumpie's working on the cupola project.   It's coming along nicely with its coat of fresh white paint!
This is the roof portion.  It's up on its side so that the "overhang" could be primed and painted.
We had company come today and they helped dad lower the cupola roof to the floor so that the roof boards and shingles can be applied.  This might not look heavy but trust me - it is!
 The guys were talking "shop" and Jeff had Molly's ball in his hand and he forgot all about tossing it to her.  She was being ignored and she was NOT happy!   oops! haha
We love our days at Crumpie's.   We get to run and play inside as much as we want to! 
Mom bought us each a stuffed bone and this one has some of the peanut butter stuffing still inside.  Of course, we both want it!
This is the scene out Crumpie's door~
It sure doesn't look much like spring!
So until next time.........

Love ya lots,
Mitch and Molly

You two look so cute sharing that bone - a great pair you make! We have a few inches of snow coming on Thursday, but it won't last long. Then they say we might get some heavy snow over the weekend. We sibes are pretty excited about all the white stuff, but the Momster says she has had more than enough already.

You are lucky to have that indoor place to play in. We just got some more snow yesterday too.


Sam said...

Wow Molly and Mitch, we have had dry weather (for once) for the past few days. It got up to a daytime high of 48 degrees yesterday but it's been pretty cool in the evenings. We hope that the snow will melt down your way soon so we can see your mom's garden blooming again.

We hope Spring knows it's supposed to arrive so you can get the cupola up!

Priscilla Phang said...

Your back yard looks gorgeous with those white bits on the ground but I think it's a better idea to stay indoor to supervise your mom and dad though.

Molly The Wally said...

Brrrrr it looks cold where you are. We are due for more cold weather too. It is going to be a cold Easter here. Hurry up Spring. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
Best wishes Molly

Crumpies is always a fun place for you to visit. Too bad the hoomans didn't give Molly the attention she deserved. Bol. That's the same face Baby makes when she's waiting patiently for a toss. Oh, and the snow looks divine. Way too hot here in Phx already. Let's trade!!

We're in the same boat. We have a series of storms coming at us (snow storms). It ain't spring yet!

Your dad is amazing. That cupola is incredible. I cannot imagine having a talent like that!

I'm glad that you two had a fun day at Crumpies!
