Let it snow

Don't you just wish you could do a million things? I am the type of person who likes to dabble in everything. I'm into science, but I also like the creative side of things. I love taking photos, painting, crafting, sewing, sports, music, and a ton of other stuff. I am not great at any one of those things however. Right now I'm all about making stuff. Christmas really has me tapping into my crafty side. Well, that and my mother-in-law. My mother-in-law has so many different talents (one being cooking, which I will doubtless, never live up to). This Christmas she has introduced me to the art of chocolate painting. Fun. And delicious. I am planning to do some more and will hopefully be able to get a post up soon. Tomorrow we are making feather pillows. We have a lot of company coming and we don't have enough. I will have to let you know how that goes.

We have quite a bit of snow right now and this past week Laney and I were delighted to watch the snow removal process. The road gets a very thick layer of snow build-up which can be rather tricky to drive in when you get deep ruts. Our city removed the snow and it was a lot of fun to watch.

I was treated with tons of "oohs" from Laney. Also, a lot of cute facial expressions like her goofy smile.

Check it. Laney's first snow angel. I may have moved her arms and legs to get it. I just wish I put something in the photo to show the scale. It is such a cute baby snow angel and here it just looks like an adult one.

We have fun indoors too. Laney's newest thing is climbing inside the 9x13 pan and just chillin' for awhile.

But, back to the million things I enjoy doing. My sister is letting me play with her new toy for awhile. So this week I'm going to be a photographer.

This is my first time using an SLR so please excuse some of the craptastic photos. By the way, the swing was a gift from Mike's mom and Laney loves it. If you are looking for a gift idea for a little one I think it would be hard to beat this.

We can't even take her into the basement if we're not planning on letting her swing or there will be tears. And a pouty lip.

Anyways, one thing I love is that this camera does a much better job at capturing the colour of Laney's eyes (which I'm not quite sure what to call). I've been trying forever and my photos from the point and shoot just don't seem to portray the colour even close.

Those eyes just knock me out.

I hope I don't drown in feathers tomorrow.

  1. So jealous of your snow! We don't get much here. I don't even think our city has snow plows, just salt trucks. I too, wish I was good at many things. Oh, and I agree, your daughter's eyes are beautiful!
