Winter Girl

I was hiking the Y trail early before sunrise when it snowed 
for the first time this winter. As I felt a snowflake land on my eyelashes, 
I couldn't contain my excitement.
 I had eagerly awaited snow for weeks, and it was finally here!
When it was a bit lighter outside, I stopped mid-trail
to take some photos of the gorgeous mountains and clouds.
I am a winter girl through and through.
One of the greatest joys I experience as a mother is hanging out with the 
Little Nies at home with the fire roaring in the fireplace.
Right now, all the Little Nies prefer staying at home with us rather than choosing 
their social lives, and I don't mind at all because I'm aware this won't last forever.
And we love it when friends come to us!
 Lottie and her best friend Ada spent a good 45 minutes in our hot tub then
jumped around the living room naked, listening to 
Christmas music while it continued to snow outside.
This is a beautiful, happy childhood.
