Through My Front Door



Vicki has asked each of to us post our view from our front door. This is going to be so much fun to see what our blogging friends view is every time they open their front door!

The snow made our view prettier than the poor brown grass. . . :)

I had to add my front door picture. . . I like Willowtree's!


And, here is the biggest selling point of our house. . .this is the elementary school. . .Bud was in his second semester of Kindergarten when we bought our house. . .


Yes, I did add more pics. . .sorry. . .

Look at those nicely shoveled walks! Who was the shovel guy?

Sure is alot of snow out there in the blog country

Pamela - My birddog shoveled and shoveled. . . It took him forever! He started Thursday night while it was still ice. . .As the snow fell he would go out and shovel every couple of hours. . :)

I really like the snow!

I really like the brick on your house. I've never had a house like that.

I have to know what is in the flowerpot - the remnants of a holiday poinsetta, perhaps?

LOVE the snow!

I'm so jealous of all the snow I keep seeing. All we have here are gales!

I would post a photo of what I see when I look out my front door, but I'm barely able to post blogs. I suck. Maybe I'll get my kids to hepl me......

The snow is a nice touch! It makes everything look so clean and fresh. Wish I had some :(

The snow made my pictures better too! Brown grass and sandstone rocks.

I love your snow! I love all the brick houses in the midwest. They are rare and very expensive in California!

pretty pic!

Looks like a nice, neat neighborhood. I like the brick (low maintenance) exteriors.

I see you're a busy basketball mom also!

LOL Tiggerlane. . .It's actually a century plant that comes back year after year and gets bigger and bigger. . .It's so abused. . .

LOL Beccy. . .

Life - I'm going to be watching!

Your are so right Susan!

Devon - we have a lot of people moving to OK from CA. . .they pretty much pay for their homes in full from the sale of theirs in CA. . .

:) Vicki

Momto3cubs - This is a wonderful neighborhood. . .

I love basketball. . .football . . . and baseball. . .Actually, I love anything the kids are involved in! ! ! :)

Snow (shudder).. I'm glad we don't get that around here! What a lovely front door.

That is nice to have the elementary school so close. Now, if it was a High School, I'd tell you how Sorry I was for you. I rented a house that was directly across the street from the local high school once. Horror - especially football nights.

Beautiful snow. You sure got a lot.

I'll bet you have a lot of fun watching kids. I love to watch them coming and going from the park. They have such energy.

You have a very nice door.

LOL Sue! We don't get much snow here so when we do I GET REALLY EXITED! :) Thanks for the compliment on the door - Birddog and I redid it a few years ago - it used to be really dark and UGLY. .

Karmyn - Now that the boys are in H.S. I wish we lived closer to it. . . :) I'm sure that you had people blocking you in on football nights. . .My sister and her hubby used to back up to the big stadium here and people would pay them to park in their circle drive. . .

I think we got around 6" of snow. . .I am enjoying it. . .Sad to see it melting. . .

tlawwife - It is fun to watch the little ones at the playground. . .When my boys were there I would look for them and watch them. . . It was a lot of fun :)

Thank you too for the compliment on the door. . .

Willowtree had a neat idea when he posted his! I just had to copy. . .

Wow Shauna, a brick house! You don't see many of them in the States. They are the most common form of housing over here.

Look like someone is getting some snow.

I got your your comment about using my idea and posting your front door. I didn't mind at all until I got here and found that yours makes mine look like shit! Oh well.

Nice front door!! Love the snow and I am soooo jealous. All we've gotten is rain, rain, rain.

 
At 4:39 PM, Blogger Shauna said...

Willowtree - don't know if you've been to the great state of OK - but brick homes are pretty common here.

We got around 6" of snow on top of ice. . .The snow is so pretty. . .

My front door doesn't make yours look like sh*!. . .Can't believe you said that. . . :)

Sonbird - thanks. . .Send me your address - I'll send you some snow. . .We all got some much needed precip. . .

wow...that is a big yard...and lots of snow!! Very nice front door.

 
At 6:12 PM, Blogger Robin said...

Hmmm, brick hours are common here, too (TN)...and in SC...and NC...and GA, everywhere I've lived in the SE.

Maybe we should do a round-robin post with front door pics; I thought it was a great idea when WT (and now you) included it, it never crossed my mind because Vicki instructed us to stand in our doorway and snap a picture of our view...I'm very obedient that way :).

Oh, and 1) snow envy and 2) your kids can tell THEIR kids one day that they walked to school in the snow! HA!!

Looks like a great place for kids.

 
At 6:16 PM, Blogger Shauna said...

Claudia - our back yard is much bigger :) And, thanks. . .

Robin - LOL on being obedient - I started that way until I saw WT's post. . . LOL - why not stretch it a bit. . .he he

We really like our neighborhood, but I sure would like to have a little bit more room to roam. . . :)

Songbird - I apologize for mis-spelling! ! !

Nice pics! You have so much more snow than we do! The snow in my pic is only a day old, too.

Great door--my door is a dreadful laminated, peeling monstrosity. Must sand and repaint it soon.

 
At 8:27 PM, Blogger Shauna said...

Thanks Kurt! My Birddog told me that he had no intentions of redoing the door again. . . In other words, next time I get a new one. . .The sun really plays havoc on it. . .

 
At 4:45 AM, Blogger Amy W said...

Glad I am getting my fill of snow looking at all these pics! I would love to live close to an elementary school, pretty cool.

 
At 3:05 PM, Anonymous swampwitch said...

YES ! My kids lived in your town. Anyway, I think I know what town you live in.

That looks like just the right amount of snow. Terrific pictures, and I really like your front door.

You have one very pretty front door. AND lots of snow.

Our snow melted and I have never been more thankful in my life.
