The first snow

We’re going to ignore the fact that we had that freak snow and ice storm in October that knocked out power for days and forced me to let my dogs poop next to my file cabinet, and call this the first snow of winter.

We’re big fans of snow here, as long as it behaves well – doesn’t get so deep that Doug comes in moaning about aneurisms and hernias, and makes the trees look pretty.

It also gives us a chance to measure how long Honour’s hair has gotten this year. That’s after I cut six inches off last week, by the way.

But most of all, it gives me the chance to watch Godric’s ears blow in the cold wind.

Once dusk fell, we got out the Insanely Cheap Ikea Tea Lights (R) and made up for all the snow we haven’t had for the last three months.

Good night, everybody – hope you had just as nice a day as we did.

    Lovely photographs….as always!….. I’ve got some of those same cheap tea lights! I may have to steal your idea if we ever get enough snow down here in Virginia 🙂

    I wish that you weren’t three time zones away. I want to take photography lessons from you.

    The pictures of Honour look like something out of the Chronicles of Narnia. She is a lovely young woman! That hair is just spectacular and I would kill for her color. Fortunately, I can buy it 🙂
