The Beauty of Winter

I know most of you have already seen this on Facebook, but I just couldn't help devoting a whole post to this face, this ray of sunshine on this dreary, icy morning in which school is canceled, and just walking outside your door is somewhat treacherous.. 

Such beautiful light coming in apres-snow on Saturday, as we were just getting ready to head out to play in what was left of the white fluff. 

Once again, a disappointing amount of precipitation, but Samantha joined up with two little girls who live a few doors down and who are close in age (one a year younger, one a year older) to build a mini-snowman, replete with carrot nose and black mulch buttons and eyes.

So, back to this beautiful face, my kid, posing in her best model pose, actually an accidental capture as she turned to say something from marveling at the snow outside the window. 

And, somehow, my kid got a looks-good-in-hats gene, unlike her mother, a reason to celebrate all on its own.
