Snow Day



I grew up in California, which meant that I didn't see much snow growing up unless we were up in the mountains. So, waking up to snow in your front yard is a REALLY exciting day. Before going to bed last night I peeked my head out the front door to discover that it was FLURRYING. I began to wish with every ounce of my being that it would snow enough overnight to cover the ground. I was super excited. Geoff thought I was nuts - but whatever - the guy is from the midwest, so a few flurries don't mean a whole to him. This morning when Ellen woke me up at 7am to be let out, my wish had come true - our neighborhood was covered in a beautiful white blanket of snow!







As you can see from above, Ellen really did like the snow, but after awhile she started hobbling around because her paws were frozen. Before taking her inside to get warm, Geoff left me this note on my car. That's a VERY sweet husband I have. :)



I begged Geoff to let me practice my off camera lighting a bit this morning....just because I wanted to see what it would look like in the snow...and for the most part, he was a good sport. :)

You guys crack me up. We took snow pictures too, but they are not quite up to par with your image capturing abilities. Well that and the fact Philip only wanted to take our little point and shoot outside. :)

Hey Cheyenne! As a fellow California girl, I totally get the excitement. It would be SO cool to wake up to snow covering the neighborhood. I'm glad you took advantage of it! Great shots too ... I especially love the one of Ellen with snow on her nose! Too cute! =)

AHAHAHAHA Cheyenne that cracks me up watching Ellen play in the snow LOL! I just had to laugh out loud at the snow stuck in the fur around her face :)

I can totally relate to using Geoff for some practice. My 6 year old now runs when I pull the camera out. I now have to pay him a "fee" to stand still long enough while I get the shot. Oh, and he counts the shutter clicks and charges me for $1 for every 10 shots. He is a little business man. : )
