...my Lil' Miss, messy hair and hoody. I wanted to take photos in all the gorgeous sun today. I packed the camera, we hopped in the car, and 2 seconds into the drive... massive cloud cover. Everything looked just as grey and miserable as it had the day before. Sure, it was warm but warm without sun doesn't translate well in photos. Then I saw her and she smiled and said to me, "It's a good thing this girl has a hood on a day like today, you never know if I'll need it." She smiled her proud smile because she knew she was so clever and I clicked. I found my Sunshine through the grey.

Look at all that snow... Do you want to know what is nice about posting a day late? I know, while looking at this snowy, grey day photo that today is sunny and over 50 degrees Fahrenheit! All that snow that had me so miserable yesterday is almost entirely melted. I am picturing this bucket full of flowers in the spring :)

More snow... I know it's still winter and January and whatever... I miss spring. Yesterday, (this day here) we got another inch of snow. Yes, it's pretty... sigh... I want to like it, really I do, but I miss being out on the boat and spring fever has a firm hold over me now.

I seems to be running a day late with posting, maybe later today I'll actually post today's photo... maybe. Anyway, I thought these looked pretty nifty yesterday. I actually went to take a shot of a woodpecker but as luck would have it, when I went to switch to my telephoto lens the darn thing flew away. It was then that I noticed the shrooms. I think, and maybe it's wishful thinking, but I think they've grown even though it's winter. Is that even possible?

As you can probably guess, smurfs have taken over my house, the toys, the cartoons, the laa la lala la laa, and now the hats. I made my oldest daughter a smurfy hat (the awesome pattern is found free here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/amelie-hat you may need to sign up for ravelry to see it, not sure) then when Lil' Miss saw it she had to have one too. I finally finished it today. The hat is easy to make and the first one only took me 2 days but the second... well the second of anything take me so much longer because I don't like making things twice. Lil' Miss had to wait nearly 2 weeks for hers. She was so excited when I finished it and has been wearing it around the house ever since. Now my youngest son wants one too but without the pretty edging... oh my poor smurfing fingers. Where did I put the tiger balm?

Day 17~ ok, so not impressive photography but this was the discovery of the day. Lil' Miss loves popcorn and has decided that this summer she is going to grow "popcorn trees" as she calls them. Some of her popcorn has started growing and she is pretty excited that it's working.
Day 18~ one of our little visitors taking off.
Day 19~ So it begins again... I've heard tale that we are in for about 7 inches of snow by Saturday morning. We've had white out conditions off and on this morning mixed with sunshine and the 1 inch we were supposed to get today has already turned into 2 inches. I'm not complaining. I love a good snow storm, I love being cozy and safe in my house while the weather rages outside. There's a roast in the crock pot and french bread baking in the oven. By the time it really hits tomorrow, I'll have the house filled with comfort foods and extra blankets scattered about. I am ready to be snowed in. :)
Now you know, with my luck, it will totally miss us lol!

My oldest daughter had the idea that she and her little sister should make the birds a treat to help them get through the winter a little easier. They made these adorable birdseed hearts and hung them on all the trees around the yard. I thought it was so sweet.

So, my darling husband says to me, "How come you've never taken any photos of you and your camera?" Well, it's because I avoid being in photos as much as possible. I suppose I had to do it eventually though, it is after all my obsession and sometime in the future someone may care to know.

Magic mirror on the wall, who is the fairest one of all? ~Queen
Over the seven jewelled hills, beyond the seventh fall, in the cottage of the Seven Dwarfs, dwells Snow White, fairest of them all. ~Magic Mirror
I couldn't possibly do a white color photo day without my own beautiful Snow White. Ever since she was born she has been compared to the princess with her dark hair, fair skin, and blushing cheeks.

and a little bit of black
I'm feeling reflective and a bit moody lately, probably because of the lack of sunshine, and I think it's beginning to filter into my photography. I seem to be shooting more thoughtful expressions and far away gazes instead of giggles. These are the ones I know will break my heart when so much time has passed that I no longer count it.
