First BIG Snow 2015

Hello Friends!


Check out the snow on our deck. Isn’t that so amazing?

Do you remember our fire bowl scene from last week?

What a different a day makes.

The snow came in on Sunday night and it’s still going on & off. It may seem like an over reaction to some of you but we are super excited at our house. This is going to be the first white Christmas for my kids.

When I first viewed this house last summer on a 100 degree day, I knew it was going to be an amazing experience to watch the snow coming down through the big windows.

With the Christmas tree lit up and the snow white background the scene feels magical. Just in time for Christmas!

I snapped this picture last night as the sky was getting dark.
Our town recorded 36 inches fell yesterday. This is the view from our street. 
Even the chain link gate on the side of our house looks sweet with a snow cap.
I do have to admit that we were out of practice shoveling and getting the snow blower going. We are amazed at the “business as usual” attitude. School still goes on with three feet of snow.
Well, except for us and several kids on our street – we took a long time getting out of the driveway and the plows couldn’t get to our street fast enough. Besides, it felt like a day to celebrate the much anticipated snow fall.
I am hoping this improves our experience of moving. My boys played in the snow all day and had the biggest smiles on their faces. The last time they saw snow like this was on a vacation to Stowe,Vermont when they were 4 years old.
For so many years I have hung this Merry Christmas tin topper on the front door that mimics a snow cap. I bought it in Cape May before my kids were born.
It’s so cozy being surrounded by snow filled trees. The view of the city draped in white at night after the sky clears is magical too.
Our friends in Virginia and Connecticut are enjoying warm weather and sunshine. In March I will be craving the sun and wearing flip flops again but for now – I am loving our first Utah winter back.
What a beautiful welcome home!
Thanks for stopping by!
