Sun and snow

It is so beautiful that I find myself stopping several times during a short walk to try to take it all in.  It isn’t just me that has slowed down with the arrival of the snow.  My children can’t walk without diving into the snow every few yards or wading knee deep before they stop all together falling down to roll around in all that white fun.  

It takes three times as long to walk to the bus stop than it did before the snow fell.  

The kids were tired last night from a day full of snow play.  I think tonight will be more of the same.  How often do my children actually tell me to put them to bed because they are tired?  Almost never.  

Last night, all three were begging me to tuck them in before eight!   

I took some photos this morning.  I hope you enjoy them and that you are having a nice day.

    It makes me miss winters. In Oregon we really only had snow for a day or two each year. In southern California we don’t get winter at all. I have some very fond memories of making snow angels and snow forts.

    And, as always, great photos. I love the flowers with snow on them. Makes you feel really cold.

    I love the photo of the flower with snow on it. Snow is sort of magical, at least the first snow fall is.

    Mad William,
    You know what is funny is that it isn’t that cold here when it snows compared to Ohio where I am from. It is bitter cold there. Perhaps that is why I love winter here. It isn’t that cold and it is so beautiful. So beautiful.
    You could always vacation somewhere there is snow like Utaha.

    Anne,
    It didn’t happen last night. They were back to the normal bedtime ritual of arguing for just five more minutes each time I tell them to get in bed. It isn’t really that cold here. We have a ton of snow but it isn’t freezing outside. Of course, we need a winter coat, scarf and gloves but I am not running to get inside like I did back in Ohio.

    Linda,
    Snow here is always magical. The mountains are beautiful with the fir trees covered in white snow. Sapin (fir in French) came to me and I had to Google what it was in English – scary. :)
