Theme Thursday - Winter Wonders

I will be the first to admit that there is something wrong with me I am somewhat unique in that I actually like snow. I think that it is beautiful and peaceful and calming. And when you're outside and it's snowing? There isn't a quieter time - ever.

So this week's theme is winter....and what symbolizes winter better (at least to those of us in colder climates) than snow? Especially since it snowed all night, and there is currently a beautiful, fresh blanket of snow to look at.

I'm actually okay with snow too, just not the cold that comes with it! And I hate driving in traffic in it as well!

Megan said...

I love their little red noses and cheeks! I love snow too. I used to live in the Snowy Mountains in NSW (did I say that before??) and we skied under lights at night. Ahhhh good times.

Stacy said...

Love the rosy cheeks! YOu are right, it is so peaceful when it is snowing outside. I love to go outside when it is snowing just for the peace that washes over you. :)

I love snow, too! I just don't get to see much of it, living in Texas. But I miss it.
I love the rosy cheeks and shining eyes! GREAT portraits!

You are right, snow is peaceful. And for some reason everything does seem
quieter. Cute pics.

MamaGeek said...

I have to say Amen sister! I love snow too, it's really the only part about winter I do love - but it's so beautiful how do you NOT love it!?

I love the boys, how cute are they! And the last, it's soo unique!

Golightly said...

Oh, what handsome boys! Great pictures.
Don't get me wrong, I love the snow for all the reasons you mentioned. That's why it's fun to visit... But Walking to school in it every day was not my cup of tea. I still have sensitive fingertips from a near frost bite experience in high school.

I also have vivid memories of a beautiful winter morning after being snowed in in Wyoming (literally!) on a trip home to South Dakota from California. A cherry red barn nestled in a white winter wonderland. It was a living postcard. And oh, the quiet of "frozen" air. Love it.

I love the first shot. His face is priceless!!

HipMomma said...

Those are nice face shots! I like snow, too. I think sometimes it makes the cold easier cuz you have something else fun to think about.

Mandaroo said...
