Watching the Snow

Alex almost looks like an angel in the brightness of the
doorway, doesn't he? I've been tempted to wear
my sunglasses in the house while the sun reflects off
of the snow! LOL! The guys were certainly mesmerized
with the falling snow last week as it fell continuously for
a couple of days. We got 25 inches but some has melted
away with the rain. Nothing cozier than being inside
and watching the snow. Ahh...think I'll have a cup of tea!

  6. Chachaneen ~ those are for his hyper-sensitive ears. They muffle the volume a bit for him. Life became so much more enjoyable when he didn't have to use his fingers to plug his ears all the time. That picture also shows his kyphosis very well...the forward bend of his spine...as if he doesn't have enough going on...poor buddy. :)

  9. Where I live, it's been a weird winter. We have a snowstorm, and then the weather stays nice enough until 90-95% of the snow is gone... Then it snows again! (Lather, rinse, repeat.)

  11. I have "line" for that, but I'd better not use it. ;-)

  12. I never tire of watching snow! When it snowed here a few weeks ago I kept saying, "It feels like an Ohio day." And don't you love the gleaming quality of light that fills the house?!

  15. Awwww.. darling photos of Alex. Yes, angelic like there. Also, can't help but notice how incredibly clean and organized everything looks. methinks some lady works VERY VERY hard all day long! Keep shining like that snow.

  16. Alex looks so content! Snow does have a mesmerizing effect, doesn't it?

  17. I love the first picture. It looks so contemplative and escapist in a certain way.
    It must have been beautiful, but I am sure you are happy the snow is somewhat gone.

  23. Alex looks very deep in thought. The snow does have a way of capturing our imagination. It snowed very lightly here yesterday afternoon. The snow was falling at such a slow pace that it looked like I was in a snowglobe when I looked out my eigth floor window at work. Keep snow gazing, Alex : )

  24. So neat to watch it fall. Cleaning up is not as much fun usually.

  25. Alex looks like he's deep in thought. What is it about snow that makes us stare out the window? Pretty room!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Not to mention having a nice wood fire burning. That adds to the atmosphere!

  27. Even though I am getting so tired of it all, I can sit in my large dining room window and just enjoy it's peace. It is a great photo of your son. You will treasure that picture as the years go by.

  28. Mmm ~ hey, thanks for noticing! :)

  29. I am wondering what Alex was listening to as he pondered all that snow . . .

  30. Love seeing your boys through your eyes.

  31. Looks like Alex has found a good spot for a day dream. Lovely pictures of him, Betsy. :)

  32. It makes sense than an angel would give birth to angels, so yes, he looks like what he is, an angel. Lovely photo, by the way.
