Winter Wonders

I’ve been interested in photography as a hobby for a while now, but I have found it to be prohibitively expensive. So, several years ago my husband bought me some little lenses that stick on your phone’s camera. He found them on Groupon Goods for $7. You can read more about them here. The set came with a wide-angle lens and a fish-eye lens, but I have had the most fun with the little macro lens. We are having a real winter here for the first time in ages, and I was able to get up close and personal with some flurries.

We are expecting several more inches of snow over the next few days. This will be the biggest snow event we’ve seen since I was little, and I’m so excited for my kids to experience a “real” winter snow! Hopefully I’ll be able to get some good shots of the kids and the snow this week. Fingers crossed that we don’t lose power during all this. I made sure to get our bread and milk yesterday 🙂

Stay safe and warm, and enjoy the snow!

Snow Day

Sleeping sweetly, snuggled down

wrapped in blankets, safe and sound

through the window sunshine peeks

house is quiet, mommy sneaks

to ready coats and hats and gloves

and breakfast for her little loves

Outside the world is dressed in white

soft as clouds and sparkling bright

lying in wait, the coming day

brings lots of fun and snowy play

make a snowball, then another

throw them at your older brother

Grab a sled and climb the hill

roll and tumble, slip and spill

build a snowman, dress him up

pour hot chocolate in a cup

come inside, put on dry clothes

warm up frozen hands and toes

read a book on Mama’s lap

stretch and yawn and take a nap

wake up, bundle up, and then

go out and do it all again.
