Snow Day


Winter is officially here {photos from last week}.

This snow day could be any ordinary day for the next 7 months … *sigh*.

… just thought I’d explain that in case you thought the title of ‘snow day’ meant that the schools were closed. HA! I don’t think they’ve done that since I was a kid.

Now it’s like: “Oh, it’s -40 degrees? Come to school!!“. <~ said in my stern voice, obviously.



Recall my new deck from my fantastic backyard renovation? Yeah, it’s now almost buried in the white stuff and not so fun for me lately {Summer BBQ’s, I miss you!}.

So, for the Winter months, the deck is now the kids play area.







These photos were taken with the Canon EOS Rebel SL1, what a fire-cracker! I take it everywhere since it’s so lightweight and I’m still am so amazed by all the features.

Good time for a reminder: If you are Canadian, make sure to stop by and enter to WIN a Canon EOS Rebel SL1 Prize Pack for yourself. It has a MSRP of $1009! 😉





  1. Aww! nice photos, the snow hasn’t come to London yet always looks nice for the first couple of days then you just want rid of it LOL

    Have a snowtastic week 😉

  2. We got our first snow last night, ground is white now 🙁 Love the twins snowsuits!

  3. Wow, did you ever get some snow! We are having a late fall heat wave here in Phoenix with highs reaching records at over 90 degrees. It’s pretty gross. Maybe I should share a touch of my heat and you can share a touch of the cold and we’ll even out?

  4. Were you able to get all of your summer stuff put away? I would really love it if you could ship some of your cold weather and snow to us, and I’ll return to you fair weather and 79 degrees!

    1. Sadly, no – at this rate it’ll be out there all Winter. I’d love to trade you!

  5. Lovely photos, marvellous camera and lots of the white stuff! Living in Alberta I know how you feel. Summer can’t come quick enough for me.

  6. Lovely photos, marvellous camera and lots of the white stuff! Living in Alberta I know how you feel. Summer can’t come quick enough for me. I’ll have to try again – error establishing data base 🙁

  7. Wow! So, snow is so common where you are that they don’t even call snow days? Oh, my boys would NOT like that! ha ha! Boy would I love to win that camera – awesome photos!

  8. Cute photos! My town still freaks out and closes school over a little snow. But my day job is at a newspaper, so I still have to work when it is bad and the state says to stay off the roads. 0.o

    1. Isn’t that funny?! Police were advising not to drive on the roads last week, yet some have to!

  9. We have had a few flurries but no accumulation…yet! I love when the kids come in from fun in the snow and their cheeks are all rosy…cute photos!

  10. Great photos! We haven’t seen snow in my neck of the woods just yet. Well… maybe some flurries!! My kids are really looking forward to the first snowfall though.

  11. Oh my Gosh! You sure got a lot of snow! I am still in denial about the weather changing~!

    1. Oh yes, That is what i look forward to most this time of year, after that, the snow can go away! lol

  12. Kids just love the snow. Me I can handle snow, but hate the cold. The snow came for us Nov. 3rd. Great pictures.

  13. Oh my gosh! Your girls are SO adorable!! I cannot believe how much snow you guys have already!!! They look like they’re having a blast 🙂 We haven’t got any yet. Sort of looking forward to it. So pretty!

  14. WOAH! You guys have snow already? It’s ~12 degrees here over in Vancouver! I love snow but November is a bit too early for me! Lovely pictures by the way – amazing quality!

  15. wow. what a fantastic snow season, the girl is so beautiful

    Happy Wordless Wednesday! My entry is here

  16. Love the post an photos…you are making good use of your camera. It is nice to look at the snowy pictures because in Victoria, if it isn’t raining, the sun is trying to shine. Yesterday there was a rainbow after a short downfall. I hope it snows for Christmas but I won’t hold my breath.

  17. I have a hard time believing it’s snowed that much anywhere yet. Yikes! Our leaves are just starting to fall in the Bay Area. I will admit to being jealous about some snow on Christmas morning most times though

  18. Love the pictures, even though your nice new deck is covered in snow, the snow looks so pretty and white. Right now, its melty and muddy, my least favorite part… We are supposed to get dumped with more tomorrow though!

  19. Great pics. Glad to see your girls get out to enjoy the snow. They will be tougher for doing so.

  20. WOW! I can’t believe you guys have gotten SO much snow already! We are very lucky here in my area of MB to have NO snow yet and temps around 7C! I know it WONT last, but I will take any moment I can get of non-winter like weather! 🙂

  21. I wish I could embrace winter and the snow. Looks lovely and I love to see children having such fun in the great outdoors. Brings back memories of snow forts, snow ball fights and snow angels. Yes, maybe this winter I will embrace the snow once again. lol. Great shots!

  22. Your girls look like they’re having fun! Myself, I would rather curl up under a blanket with a good book… Wish adults got “snow days”… LOL!

  23. Yuck snow, you can keep it, lol. Wonderful pictures by the way they are so clear and the colours are so vivid.

  24. Looks like fun to me! I wish we had snow here. Fingers crossed for a White Christmas this year!

  25. Snow came earlier than the last few years here…More like the “good” old days. Not even December yet and I’m over it!!! Children have a better attitude about it though…lol. Seeing your girls reminds me so much of my twin nieces bundled up so I most definately couldn’t tell them apart!

  26. We here in Vancouver don’t have any snow yet, we have been supper lucky so far. I really feel for you guys with all that snow, but hopefully you stay warm and safe:)

  27. It’s so much fun to take pictures in the snow! One of my favorite parts about winter in Canada!

  28. The deck looks like a great place to play!

    I don’t know about with your school, but a few days a year, the buses are cancelled here (but the schools remain open), due to weather conditions. Almost no kids come to school at the high school level, and many elementary kids stay home too. All staff must report to work, though.

  29. Looks nice, I’m already tired of winter, way too much ice, more than snow in my neighbourhood.
