Let it Snow

"Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow..."

Oh the weather outside is frightful,

But the fire is so delightful,

And since we've no place to go,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

It doesn't show signs of Pausing,

And I've bought some corn for popping,

The lights are turned way down low,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

When we finally kiss goodnight,

How I'll hate going out in the storm!

But if you'll really hold me tight,

All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,And,

my dear, we're still good-bying,

But as long as you love me so,

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Sammy Cahn and Jule Styne penned the words to this song in 1945. Dean Martin, American singer, film actor, prizefighter, and comedian was the voice that gave these lyrics life. Although it is commonly associated with Christmas carols, it is actually a love song and does not mention the word "Christmas."

A few hours ago as I made lunch for me and Noah, it began to snow. How beautiful and peaceful it is. This is mine and Noah's first real snow. It is supposed to snow until 7pm tonight and I absolutely love the sight of it. Everything is covered with a layer of white and the snowflakes are floating quickly to the ground. Although you can't see that its snowing presently, the beauty is there nonetheless. This picture was taken from our back door overlooking our patio and backyard. "Let it snow!"

It is just beautiful and I love to watch it snow. That is perfect weather to be in p.j.'s with a good book and some hot tea.

Jana, a good book, pj's... and that handsome litte guy!

Let it Snow is a year-round about that. I think it's too late to tell me that...I'll go nuts if people start singing "Let it Snow" in the middle of February! ARGH!

Sis. Allard, mmmm sounds good. We're supposed to get 3 to 4 more inches tomorrow morning. We'll be waking up to the snow this time. I love it.

James, Yeah, I hear ya!! No more holiday music. I play it nonstop from Thanksgiving day until Christmas day... by then I'm burnt out. Nevertheless it applied to my post. lol

Sarah, Tahoe... ahhhhhh that reminds me of our good ol skiing days. How I miss them. I haven't been in YEEEEEEARS!!! (sigh)
