Snow Days!

Our typically wet and gray Oregon winterscape was recently frosted with a thickly sparkling blanket of snow! Jason and I eagerly dressed Siennalee in her warmest layers, grabbed the camera, and ushered her out to meet this new experience.

Siennalee was enamored with the snow. She knew what it was right away. "Snnnoooooh" she told us with a hint of awe in her little voice.

Daddy gave tips on catching snowflakes.

Mommie followed suit. Those snowflakes were sneaky little guys!

Daddy and Siennalee tromped around though the snow, enjoying the soft powdery crunching beneath their feet and admiring their white-framed footprints.

We regretfully went back inside to warm up and dry off, but opened up all the blinds so we could view the feathery snowflakes as they continued to fall. We did our very best to enjoy the snow as much as we could - it might not make it back to visit for some time!
