This week’s story is all about the first snow of the year.  We were wondering when it would come and we were super excited to see those first few flakes falling.




But then it got crazy!

Some of us thought this snow thing was a little overrated.

But then the blizzard stopped, the sun came out, and we were back to playing in our winter wonderland!

I’m still back at the overrated place.  I am over the snow and ready to move to Texas or Florida!

Carey Pace - I confess, I’m kinda sad we didn’t get these quantities (even though we had plenty!). These are super cute. I love how you managed to capture the sparkle of the snow on that last one! I never can get that to come out right!

Julie Mak - Mel I literally laughed out loud reading your post – “but then it got crazy!!” Dying here!! You know I already love the one with your dog flying through the air, but the last one is a close second! These are great!

Laura Martin Mood - Your winter wonderland looks so pretty. M looks so little in those snow drifts. Love the close-up of her “snow is over-rated face’

Stephanie Mason - That image of your daughter with the broom is perfection! I’m glad to see your crew is thoroughly enjoying the snow. Another gorgous week Mel! 🙂

Meredith Howell Rockefeller - I love that you went out during the blizzard! My favorite is the last one, though! I love that you can tell just how deep the snow is. I love the lines, the sunburst, and her all bundled up with snow everywhere. Just perfect!!

Lynzi Le Anne Berg - I’m with you! One snow storm in and I’m ready to go back to Texas. So beautifully captured, Mel. I love that the kids actually look like they might be swept up…glad they weren’t though 😉

Allison Gipson - Crazy is an understatement. You guys got so much snow. I was so thankful for all of your fun updates. I was wishing I was there in the worst way. I love M’s mini snowman. 🙂

AnnMarie Denis - Mel what a storm you guys had! I am obsessed with the shot of your boy and his dog! That is so cool and I love how you managed to capture the sparkle of the snow in that last shot! I can never capture the sparkle! It looks like you guys had a lot of fun!
