The Nutcracker Army Faces Winter’s Roar

Yes, it looks like winter came in (again) with a roarDSC02950.  It makes me glad to be appreciating it from inside todayDSC02951.  Our nutcracker army is standing at attention from their cozy perchDSC02952.  They just keep on smilingDSC02953.  They are completely happy with this turn of eventsDSC02954but then again maybe I’d smile too if it were painted onDSC02955.  This cheerful army always blesses meDSC02956.  They seem to be cheering us on from up thereDSC02957.  They remain unaffected by snow and coldDSC02958.  I could envy them from withoutDSC02959but I think I’ll join them inside instead!
