Snow, glorious snow!

I've been experimenting with some digital scrapbooking lately. There are so many free downloads online, if you just look you can make some pretty cool pages without spending any money! This layout was a quick page (just drag and drop your pictures in and add text) by a digital designer named Flergs. This page was part of the Whimsical Wonderland freebie. Several designers contributed to a "12 Days of Christmas" freebie with lots of free papers, accents, and alphabets all with a Christmas theme. This one can be found here under where it says "OK, here is MY part." I think the quick pages are in download #1.

Quick pages can be really versatile. Here is what the original design looked like; I just adjusted the hue and saturation in Photoshop to make it match my pictures better.

These pictures are from a great snowstorm we had on December 8th. There were so many fun pictures, I just had to show you some more!

Snow, glorious snow!

Amelia will never wear a hat, unless there is snow involved. Then she's willing to put up with it!

One of Lily's best friends, Halle, was at our house when it started snowing. She only had her coat, so we dug out an old box in the top of Mom's front closet and found her a hat, scarf, and some gloves. Guess what else we found? Two pairs of my old leg warmers! Dude, those have been in that box for a long time! She's a maniac, maniac, on the floor...And she's dancin' like she's never danced before...

It was such a crack-up watching Lily and Halle trying to push this huge snowball!

Lily finally enlisted the help of Daddy!

That dirty dog!

Note the snowball hitting Lily in the back!

Lily and Halle formulating their strategy for retaliation. You can see their plan worked out really well...

The best part of fresh snow? Eating it, of course!

I don't mind this kind of snow. Big flakes, perfect for making snowballs, and the best of all, I get to watch from inside, where it's nice and warm!

Aaaah... lovely warm winter days inside, I cherish them. Although your girls are really cute out in the snow. Sweet pics! And how long did Amelia last out in the snow, with no mittens on?

Amelia was out for about 15 minutes but luckily she only took her mittens off right at the end. Apparently it's much easier to eat snow with your bare hands. After a minute or two her hands were super red and she started shivering and crying. It was straight into a hot bath for her!
