Fun Monday a little late

Todays Fun Monday is brought to us by Kitten from Kittens Homeschool.
This is what she requested for today.

"Today for Fun Monday I thought it would be neat to hear about the story behind your home and the road you live on. It doesn't have to be historical, maybe just something that stands out to you. It would be nice to have pictures to go with your little story. I also would like to know who has the oldest house. Whoever has the oldest house will get a little Christmas treat from little ole me."

Well I don't really know a lot about the history of our house or street. I do know that the owners originally bought it as a beach house and that is what they usually use it for except obviously right now since we are staying here. We are actually moving in about 2 weeks but will still have a great view then! We live north of town and there really isn't a whole lot out here except the homes and a gas station everything else you have to drive into town.

Also I did this one for an excuse to show new winter pics of my house since people had asked I post when winter came!

Most of you who have read other fun monday posts of mine showing my house such as
this one.

So if you go there you will see what this below looks like in the fall. We do get snow all the way down to the beach.

To the side of the house.

Another beach shot.

Just above the stairs going down to the house from the trail to and from our garage and house.

Our street to the left

Our street to the right.
Nothing really exciting about our street other then we used to have a firestation on this street and it's not there anymore but the one out on the north end is named after our street either way.

And of course a pic of the kids in the snow when I could still pose them before they started throwing it at each other!

Also a couple of people have asked about the puppy and what kind of breed she is. Actually she is kind of mixed but her mother is a Blue Heeler or Australian cattle dog with a little border collie mixed in but she is mostly blue heeler. The father was a husky. She seems to be taking mostly after her mother showing both blue heeler and border collie markings. Her legs and lower half of her body were white when she was born but are now showing the blue colors but on the top half she is more border collie.

Gorgeous pictures.

I had a blue heeler when I was a young girl. She was a beautiful snow white when she was born and developed the blue slowly. She had a few tan markings and a big blue dot in the middle of her back. We called her Dottie.

They are wonderful dogs. Your kids will love her to bits. I'm sure they already do.

Your pictures are so pretty Terri!
We DID have snow but it has all melted... :( It's 7 above freezing today....not great for keeping snow around...and it all melted today. I'm curious what your temperature is like there since you're in a bit of a 'rain forest'.
Hey another question....where did you find your new template? mine is still pumpkins and I'm trying to change it but the colours on blogger don't really seem very Christmas-y...yours looks great.
Merry Christmas!
