Hey everyone! Sorry I haven't really been on all week. I wasn't expecting things to be so busy, but today was the first day I actually had time at home!!
Oldest gal's birthday party was a big success, but I haven't had a chance to finish that post, so I thought I'd tide you over with the promised snow day post. :D
I always bring at least one doll with me to my sister-in-law's because they have such beautiful scenery at their place. I have to admit, though, when we first arrived, I didn't expect to take any pictures. It's been pretty dry up there, so everything was dead and brown.
But the next morning...
...we woke up to a beautiful thin layer of snow. Hayden was very excited! ;)
It's amazing what a bit of snow will do to a dry landscape! ;)
So I pretty much just took Hayden outside and had an awesome time taking pictures right and left. :) Here are some of my favorites:
Our car was completely covered with snow (well, at least by my hometown's standards). ;)
I know this one's really similar to one of the earlier pictures, but I loved this one too. :}
The really fun thing about this photo shoot was that it was still actually snowing during the photo shoot. I think it added an extra sense of realism, since Hayden was covered with snowflakes. :) I've been wanting to do snow pictures for a really long time. I was so thankful that it worked out! :D
I figured that would be the last of the photos, because within 2 or 3 hours, the snow had completely melted. But low and behold, the next morning we woke up to...
...more snow!! :D
So out I went again! :) This photo shoot was really fun because the sun kept coming in and out from the clouds, so the lighting was constantly changing. There was also a thicker snow cover, so it gave the place a whole new look. :)
Hayden decided to pose on the bottom part of the snowman the girls were building with their cousins. :)
I was just about to go inside when I remembered the beautiful stonework at the side of the house. I'd gotten some great pics of Emma and Charlie there during the summer, and I thought it would be fun to get some snowy pictures there, too! :)
Hope you enjoyed the photos! :) I worked on some headers using these pics (on my last day with Picnik *sob!*), but I just couldn't quite bring myself to post a snowy header when it's now 92 degrees outside. ;) I may save the headers for next fall or winter...I'm not sure yet. Meanwhile, I need to decide which photo editing service I'm going to use now so that I can make some summery headers! ;)
Talk to you guys again soon. I have so many posts in the works right now it's not even funny...I've just got to buckle down and get them published!! ;)
