Auld Lang Syne {Our Robbie Burns Snowman}


This afternoon the snow changed from powder to what I call “snowman sticky.”  It was the moment we were waiting for.  The girls quickly changed into their outdoor gear and we made a Robbie Burns snowman.  The kilt was worn by my husband on our wedding day (19 1/2 years ago!).  It was handy because I used it as a Christmas tree skirt this year.  Sadly, the sporran is packed away in our attic so it was not available for this little photo shoot (must get it out for Burns night!).


Wishing you a happy New Year celebration and a blessed 2013. 

Thank you for taking the time this year to stop by and visit this little space in blogland.  As of tomorrow, I will have kept the blog up for three years!  I very much appreciate your kind response and the bloggy friends that I have met along the way.

… And we'll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne
