Snow Dance

There are three people in this house who love snow and one person who is just meh. I’m the meh. I was born in the South for a reason. But even I will admit that flurries like the ones below are beautiful. Mind you, I wasn’t out doing a happy dance in them, but that was taken care of for me by Ash.

Snow Dance – ProjectEdit365 – 28 Jan

This was taken in 2012, five years ago, and I can guarantee you I wanted to practice stopping motion. Head over to Project Edit 365 to see how I edited the original pic. Thanks!

Sledding

Continuing with the snow theme, here’s a picture from later that day (from yesterday’s post). I guess I did leave the house long enough to do a couple of turns on the awesome hill that was in our neighborhood.

I’m fudging a little bit on my rules, I guess. I technically did not take the picture (since I’m finally in one!), but I showed my husband exactly what to do and had the camera all set up for him. And I am the one doing the editing.

I love my daughter’s face in this picture. You can tell she’s apprehensive, but knows that the ride is going to be good. Ha!

The snow is really on the cool side, but I like that with snow. I took all the warmth out of the picture and then added a little bit . . . head on over to Project Edit 365 to see all the edits that I did to the original. Thanks so much!

Blue Eyes Pouting

She wasn’t happy about getting dressed up to go out in the snow. Who knows why. But once we got her out there–building snowmen; on the sled; building a snow fort–she had a great time. Me, on the other hand–I was out just long enough to get some snaps and then I ran back inside to the warmth!

I’m posting this in honor of my friends up in Georgia and Alabama who are prepping for a few flakes tomorrow.

I cropped in quite a bit from the original photo to really focus on her face. Head over to Project Edit 365 to see all the edits I made! Thanks so much!

New Mexico White Christmas

Our oldest daughter’s first Christmas was a white one, even in New Mexico! And we had enough snow to build a giant snowman! She wasn’t crazy about being out in the cold and wasn’t sure what to make of the snow, so she didn’t spend too much time out there. Enough to get this cute pose though:

This was taken on what was probably our first digital camera. Head over to Project Edit 365 to see what edits I did. Thanks!

White Out

While it was budding springtime in Yellowstone and the valleys of Wyoming, it was still snowy in the mountain passes. People pull over on the side of the road, get out, and ski.

White Out – ProjectEdit365 – 21 May

The original wasn’t as stark of an image as I wanted to evoke. Plus, it wasn’t bright enough. That blob with the two humans is their dog.
