Winter wonderland


I took these a number of weeks ago, thinking about how much I love fall.


And the next morning, it snowed.

Snow is a finicky thing. When you are least expecting it, it falls.




When you find yourself humming "let it snow" and "winter wonderland", its gone.
Despite the small snow flurries this season, we Eyrings are enjoying the cold weather.





Edana has even said THIS IS THE YEAR she is going to talk to Santa...we'll see...



A favorite in our house: snowfights then hot chocolate.


Or going out to fun parades and festivals with friends.

Just a side note, as I was dancing around the kitchen one day listening to my beloved Christmas music, I saw this little face.
I love it when life feels completely perfect.

Hi Jen, you probably don't remember me (Michelle Callihan) from the Norfolk ward FOREVER ago. I remember you from the very first few weeks I was there. Our family is moving to Colorado Springs this week and I just thought it was funny how small the world really is. This comment is kind of pointless, sorry. Your kids are super cute though, and I'm glad I stumbled into your blog from Janice Clore's blog :)

So cute! I love the pictures. Good luck with Edana and Santa. Lizzie's all excited he's coming, but I doubt she'd feel that way seeing him in person. Snow is way too finicky. I wish it would just stick already.

Dear Jen,

Happy Holidays! We love and miss you a ton! Thank you for this post, it reminds me that we haven't played in the snow nearly enough and makes me excited for the next time the flakes fall.

Love,
Abs

Oh my goodness! I loved all your pics! I especially loved the one with Larry and the kids. Cute family you have! And how could anyone not smile when they see Eddie's little face?
