Snowed!!! (In More Ways Than One)

Sorry I have been missing lately. It has been 9 days since my last post. I was really trying to avoid going a long time without posting, but it was unavoidable this week. I have been snowed under with pictures for others (mostly finished), making my Christmas cards (done and mailed), making Christmas treats (made and delivered), last minute Christmas shopping (DONE!!!), and just trying to survive everyday. Now it is time to sit back and enjoy the Christmas season for the last few days before Christmas.

In my last post I mentioned that we were patiently waiting for the snow to arrive. Slowly but surely it has. We don't have TONS, but 5-6 inches is enough to cover the ground and require shoveling. I am satisfied. Christmas can come now. Here are some photos to prove that I am not pulling your leg (and how could I post without photos, right?!?!)




My oldest loves to shovel show. I don't really mind shoveling either--maybe that is where she gets it. I took some photos of her doing what she begs to do every time it snows.

I think this photo says it all, but in case you aren't sure what this look means, I'll translate. "MMMOOOMMM, do you really have to take a picture of me right now?" "I've got work to do!"

No snow blower in our immediate future. We've got her!! The last two are a couple of my favorites. I tried a new Photoshop action on them. What do you think?


Enjoy being snowed!!

Love the new actions!
Can you send her to my house when she's done? My oldest likes to shovel the snow, but he's 4 so he has some things to learn...

I LOVE the last picture of Alisun it's so cute!! Although i can't tell what you did differently to the last two. My limited experience with photoshop i guess!!! Photoshop user and photographer still in training!!

I love the action, it warms it up, what is it called? Did you know she did our driveway the other day? I just kept saying she really doesn't have to do that...but she insisted! Will she work for cookies? Josh will make them since it's HIS job :)

The action is called "Colorized". It is from the Pioneer Woman website that I have linked at the bottom of my blog. If you go to her photography section, she has given away 2 sets of actions. The colorized one is from the newest set she gave away.
