Snow is Glistening

Winter Wonderland

The Sixth Day of Christmas

I know, I know.  More snow talk.  I just can't help myself!

So, as I've mentioned before, it is always snowing here.  Not usually very hard, nothing that's going to accumulate much, but there are always snowflakes falling.  And when it's snowing like that, it's nearly always the type of snow where you can really get a good look at each individual snowflake.

Perfect Snowflakes

It's really pretty.  I love how we get them in our hair and on our coats and they just stay there.  They don't melt unless we go inside or try to touch them.  The girls are enamored and get so excited whenever they notice a beautiful, perfect snowflake on somebody's jacket or in their hair.

These pictures are of Joel, and the unusually large perfect snowflakes that were falling earlier.

Have you made a snowflake yet here?

  1. What lens are you using? It's been a LONG time since I have seen snow flakes that large and pretty!!!

  2. Wow, that looks like an actual snowflake!

  3. What beautiful snowflakes! I love the ones that are more than just little circles of white.

  4. Oh my goodness, those are beautiful. I don't think I have ever seen snowflakes quite like that. I am enamored as well.

  5. Living in Texas I have never seen snowflakes like that....though my kids assure me that they really do look like we picture them...I guess they are right.

    Awesome pictures!

  6. That's amazing Lara! I don't think I've ever seen a real one up close before. Just beautiful!

  7. Love the pics. We always get so excited about the snow that we forget to take the camera out to take pictures of the snowflakes!! Nice job!

  8. We don't get snowflake snow in New just is all smallish and grainy by the time it comes to us. Those are really pretty though.

  9. Wow. That is the most incredible thing I've seen this week. I can't believe the detail in those pictures! I've NEVER seen a snowflake like that before.

    It truly makes one marvel at God's hand.

  10. I know this makes me sound like an idiot, but I truly had no idea that snowflakes really looked like that. Awesome!

  11. Love the details captured in these photos, girl, you have an eye!

  12. I really didn't see snowflakes as the beautiful shapes they are until I was in Rexburg, ID, for college. It was so cold that I was able to see them for the first time. Beautiful.
