snowy day

Despite the strep throat (me), flu (Todd), and sniffles (Tsia), I love this weather. I had to run to the store for dish soap tonight, and the air is so clear! All the Christmas lights are vibrant, even the stop lights at the intersection look festive. Of course, our new snowfall (11 inches, according to the radio) makes the weather and season feel even more festive and pleasant.

















Four must be the perfect age to enjoy snow. She's close enough to the ground to flop or fall down with abandon, which she did every couple of seconds today, just to roll around and enjoy herself. Really, I've never seen anyone have so much fun. We both giggled endlessly!

Tomorrow after school we'll take a pass or two at that sledding hill.

  1. How is it that one look at the white stuff immediately reverts us back to childhood? It does look like four just might be the perfect age to truly appreciate its wonder. I love these photographs. Would love to have you jump in on "The Fine Print" project if you're interested. Stay warm. Get well soon!

  3. My dad made us an snow house one year after a big snow! She had so much fun. I just relived how wonder snow can actually be! Looks like her new winter coat passed the test. Maybe I should make myself a cashmere blend coat. Maybe then I would frolic through the snow with glee! Have a Merry Christmas!

  6. PERFECT! Adored the photos and glee on her face. Wool is still warm when wet!

  7. April, the great thing is that the wool didn't even get wet! We just brushed her off before we went inside and within 30 minutes her coat was completely dry again. I can't say the same thing for her hat and mittens, unfortunately. They were still a bit damp this morning.
