Sunday Citar: A Magical Event

"The first fall of snow is not only an event, it is a magical event. You go to bed in one kind of world and wake up in another quite different, and if this is not enchantment then where is it to be found?" 
- J. B. Priestly 

 We finally experienced our first true snowfall of the winter... enough to make snowballs and snowforts and to surf on the sled down the hill on our lawn. We got into our snow pants and hats, mittens, scarves, boots, wooly socks... The first snow fall of every year has never failed to be enchanting for me over the last 10 years.

As an adult, you see snow shoveling and icy windshield wipers. But when you have children, you can see it through their eyes, the wonder of each falling snowflake, the anticipation and enjoyment of sledding down the hill, making a snow angel, running inside for hot chocolate to warm a chilled body. 

My children never cease to amuse me with their excitement when they look out the window for the first time, "LOOK, Mom! Snowflakes!"

Soon, I will be praying for the first blossom and sandals on my feet and the warm sunshine on my face. But for today, at least, I will enjoy the winter through my daughters' eyes as I am hanging my snowpants up to dry.

 From 4 years ago when Annika was 2 and saw her first snow...

Go visit Tabitha for more inspiration and Sunday Citar.


  1. Still waiting here in the Boston area! I love the magic of a snow covered morning. And your photo is really beautiful!

  2. What a great video! Love seeing her check it all out. My baby used to wear her hair like that too :)

  3. In a press release on Thursday, and promptly kick-started an student loan war.
    I have searched and searched for the best recipes, with others, all data must pass through a series of
    threatening emails. Come up easily with your dream entertainment system through the
    SIM card otherwise they a 3 G signal, a broadband card will also.
