Last weekend we went to visit my family in Northamptonshire. On Friday morning we woke up to a whirling blizzard, much to the delight of both children. When the snow was no longer falling, we wrapped them both warmly and headed out for a walk. TTB was hopping with excitement about walking in real snow, and the chance to “hear it crunch”. It was the first snow TTG has ever walked in and she did very well, her tiny footprints looked so sweet pressed into the snow.
We didn’t walk for long as it was windy and cold but TTB’s enjoyment was wonderful to see. We often moan (as a family) that the snow gets in the way of us travelling to see each other, and wish that we would have a sudden snowfall when we are all together that we can enjoy and then melts away by the end of the day. And this time it did! We were all together to have our “second Christmas” having not been able to see each other on real Christmas Day, and snow on Second Christmas was lovely. Just the right amount of snow. Nothing like the wonderfull photos of Portland, Oregon that I saw on instagram of course, but just enough snow for us!
