Missing winter

If you live in or around Toronto, you might have noticed that winter has gone missing. I'm not sure what happened, but we'll have a few days where it might hover around freezing and we get an inch of snow, and then a couple of days later, it'll go up to a balmy 10 degrees and all the snow will melt. We've had a lot of rain, and frankly, I kind of feel like we're having a Vancouver winter. I shouldn't complain because anyone who knows me can tell you how much I hate winter, but somehow not having any snow on the ground, and not having to wear a winter jacket most days is just a tad disconcerting.

Anyway, here are some pictures from my parents' place in the Townships to get us back into that wintry mood. To start off, here are a couple of pics my dad took around the house, just to show off the winter wonderland:

Then we have lattes will silly faces:

Pretty ornaments on the Brumalia shrubbery:

Tasty baking:

And a whole family of MacBook Pros (my brother got one for X-mas... so mine's the smallest, his is the middle one and my dad's is the biggest):
