the simple things


A certain little four year old has been dying to play in the snow since we arrived home but there hasn't been any of the white stuff around here until this week! It started snowing a little bit the other morning and as soon as Addie could get her coat and boots on she was out the front door squealing and giggling as she experienced snow again for the first time in almost 2 years. She was so excited and it was the funnest thing to watch and photograph...even though I was FREEZING! Canada is a c-c-c-old place. I don't know how I forgot this! Brrrr! Alivia's reaction to the snow wasn't nearly as joyful as Addie's. Ha!


When we moved to the island Alivia was only 8 months old so this was her very first experience with snow and as it turns out, she's not such a big fan. ;) It took some convincing to get her to come outside to begin with and then when she actually touched the snow she quickly realized it wasn't her thing.  She could not get back inside the warm house fast enough. There are so many things that this little beach babe has had to get used to since our return back to the cold north {ie. having to wear socks, keeping a blanket on at night, bundling up in all the winter gear} but she's slowly adjusting and I'm sure by the end of winter she'll be outside running and playing in the snow with her brother and sisters. :)

  2. I love your photos Rebecca. The children (and yourselves) will find many rediscovered delights now you are home again. I guess there will also be times you will miss the island life too.

  16. Such beautiful photos! I hope she learns to love what is wonderful about each place. I'd love to see a bit of snow here, but like her, after a few minutes I'm done ;)

    Thanks for hosting! I don't know why I always have trouble linking up to your linkies. My photos never show up, but they seem to work on other linkies. I'm sure it's operator error on my part.
