Thursday afternoon brought us the biggest snowflakes I’ve ever seen! I have a tendency to get overly excited about that kind of things, but seriously, even my clients couldn’t get over how big and beautiful the snowflakes were.
Around 9 PM it stopped snowing and I decided to take a walk around our house and snap a few night time pictures. With the white snow covering everything I didn’t use my flash so I could get a cool effect. I started in my backyard and captured this picture of our American flag. Surprisingly I didn’t see any deer sleeping down by the creek.
A benefit of not taking the Christmas lights down on New Year’s Day was being able to admire the lights with snow on them. Our holly tree has been so gorgeous!
I still love my spiral Christmas trees that I’ve had for many years!
Friday morning I started the day with a cup of hot chocolate in my favorite mug. Thanks Betty for the Ghirardelli peppermint cocoa mix!
I shoveled the drifted snow off of the driveway a second time, and watched two neighbor children sled down the hill in our side yard. Every child should experience the wind blowing in their hair while sledding down a big hill!
I spent the rest of the day procrastinating, and avoiding taking our Christmas decorations down…
- Did you get snow from Hercules?
- Hot chocolate or coffee?
- If you grew up with snow, what’s your fondest memory of sledding as a child?
