Cherished Moments Monday

"Some things are too special to sleep through."
~Mama Hen
Today Little Chick asked me when it was going to snow. It was cloudy and cool when we woke up and she said she would really love to go sledding! It reminded me of last year's first snow. We couldn't wait for it to snow! We have a hill in our backyard that we love to go sledding on. I remember waiting all day for the snow and it did not come yet. Little Chick and I were so excited! She went to sleep and I told her that she would wake up to snow and we could go sledding after breakfast. That night it started to snow at around 10:30 PM. I didn't want her to miss it so I woke Little Chick up and carried her down to watch the snow in our family room through the big picture window with the spotlight on. She was so excited! Then we put our snow boots on and winter jackets and headed outside for a few minutes of the first snow! It was so amazing! Little Chick giggled and squealed with delight! She of course caught some snowflakes on her tongue as it came down. What a cherished memory that was for us both.

  1. Great memory! I love a picture that I have of my son back 6 years ago, we moved to a new state, and he saw his first snow at 4yrs old. He built a mini-snowman, it was only 2-3 inches deep, just enough!

  2. The first time I saw snow I was nearly 13 years old! That's what happens when you're raised in outback Australia!!

    It must have been December in the photos above, or do you put your tree up really, really early?

  5. Awwwww I love this story. It's always so exciting for children when it snows outside. I love the pictures of her all bundled up and I'm dying over the little snow boots! The picture of her looking out the window in front of the Christmas tree just looks so cozy :-)

  14. Oh how I love snow. As a Canadian, I'd better love it! There's nothing like fresh fallen snow to make you get the Christmas spirit. To see a field of snow without tracks makes you think of a new beginning!

    Thanks for sharing.

I don't know why I remember that...but i do. Thank you so much for your sweet email. I just got it. :-) Have a wonderful week! ♥

  19. What a sweet memory that is! But please, give me another month without snow. Once it comes here it doesn't leave until some time in April.

    Darling pics. :-)
