We woke up early, like it was Christmas morning…and we were seven years old. 😉 We threw on clothes as fast as we could, then bundled Greyson with clothes right over his footie pajamas. We decided earlier in the week, that Saturday we would take our Christmas card photo….little did we know it would have the perfect winter wonderland backdrop–right from our front yard!
Everything looked so bright, “wintery,” and pretty with snow covering it.
We were not properly equipped with snow clothes, especially for Greyson. I used socks for mittens for the little man, who hasn’t been to the snow yet.
We took a drive to go pick up Malla-Mal and her mama, and to see what our snow capped town looked like.
I sipped hot coffee, and marveled at lamp posts that looked like they were straight out of a Thomas Kinkade Christmas painting.
Is this a dream?!?! I was about to be seriously upset if I woke up and none of it was actually happening….but I didn’t wake up.
We brought back the Mallinator, had snowball fights, played with the dog, made a wimpy snowman, and just enjoyed this beautiful blessing.
Our poor chickens!
Remember when I planted this back in September?
Mallie’s snow angel.
…and the exhaustion.
Happy Winter (even-though-it’s-still-technically-fall) friends!
