a snow day
we had a swirly little snowstorm start up in the middle of the day tuesday, the first snow of the winter here! we get really really excited when it snows since it's a pretty rare occurrence around these parts. it was so beautiful and peaceful watching the cold rain turn silently to snow. lucy was so excited when she noticed the snowflakes fluttering down outside the window by her changing table.
we quickly got her bundled up and jammed out to let her experience SNOW!
(a little vintage snowsuit borrowed from jorden and becky)
she was so excited!
the snowflakes would land in her eyelashes and on her cheeks and she would giggle with this shy little nervous grin. she never fussed or cried, just smiled and smiled and gazed around with wonder.
darin had to leave for work at 2:30, and by the time he left the whole yard and street were covered in snow. lucy and i took a little walk.
looking down the hill:
and up our hill:
it seemed like we were the only people home in the neighborhood. everything was so quiet, even the birds. some deer were gliding by across the street without a whisper.
home from our walk, she loves to sleep on mama:
next morning dawned brilliant and cold, and we went out to enjoy our sparkly white yard.
Tutti got to touch snow and eat some! Will wonders never cease?!
mmmm, that's pretty good! i'll take some more please.
although i loooovvve springtime for all its warming sun and balmy eves and the way that everything turns green and blossoms, i will sure enjoy some winter wonderland when i can get it! february brings a nice mix of both.
hope you are all enjoying some beautiful days!
