Okay. So Christmas Day 2010 was amazing. I’m living in the past, I know I was nine months pregnant and Sierra would be born just 3 days later on December 28th. It snowed so much on Christmas Day that we even had a ton of snow still around the day after Christmas, and went sledding!
Then, two weeks later (January 10th, 2012) when Sierra was just 2 weeks old, it snowed again and even more this time! This snow became affectionately referred to as “snowmageddon,” because the Tennessee Valley rarely sees that kind of snowfall. We gladly welcomed the 8 inches, knowing it was a special winter. We even took 2-week-old Sierra outside with us for some photos, since it was, after all, her very first snow! Never mind the fact that she snoozed right through it in her newborn sleep coma.
Fast forward to the last winter, the winter of 2011-2012. We experienced zero snowfall all winter, save a few flurries here and there, but absolutely no accumulation. LAME.The way I see it, if it’s going to be grey, overcast and super cold, it really just needs to cooperate and give us the gorgeous white stuff. But alas, no snow was to be had last winter. No snow photos whatsoever.
So here we are, in the winter of 2012-2013, and we finally got some snow this morning. Not a ton, and nothing that could compare to the winter that Sierra was born, but we’ll take it! We watched it from inside for a while, and then Rich announced that we were headed outside for some family snow photos! No one in this household ever argues with that kind of announcement, so out we went!
This would definitely quality as the first snow that Sierra was actually aware of, and we loved her reactions! Here are a few of our favorites from this morning.
