Making the Most of Snow Days

My daughter came over and tried her hand at photography.  She didn’t do a bad job for someone who never takes pictures.  A few details were missed:  the strap on my dress, a head turn here or there.  But all in all, she did a great job.

I had this big idea for some Christmas pictures.  And it was a pretty great idea, too.  Here.  See for yourself.

I just know this is a great idea!

Darn that strap

A great pic -- except for that stinking strap!

preparing for the red nails in white snow pic

We  were supposed to have our red-painted fingernails in the snow beside each other.

Mmmmmm.  It needs work.  My butt needs to be smaller, and we definitely have to work on the hand placement.  I can’t believe Kate is acting like she can barely stand to put her hands on the snow.  She has been out in it for days!  Loving it!  Sledding, eating snow, throwing snow balls.  She did have on gloves, though.

It was a great thought

perhaps the planning was a tad flawed

Then we tried for the red toenails.  Kate, who is the hot potato, never gets cold, runs around with shorts all winter, was acting like she was freezing!  Normally she is one tough cookie… especially when it comes to cold!  I never know about that girl anymore.  She’s seven going on 17.  BooHissBoo

Actually it wasn't too bad.

We had fun sticking our toes in the snow.

Maybe we’ll try again on the next snow storm.

I love laughing... children... photography... writing bad poetry and probably blogs... collecting people for a lifetime... and their stories... dancing... playing cards. I love words; they're delicious! I love lying in my hammock in my backyard and watching traffic from the swing on my front porch. I love that Christ so totally loves me.
