enjoying the ice

This storm sure did a number on our neighborhood. There is no where to put all the snow and ice so it is just piled everywhere. Some cars, like our Jetta, probably won't come out for a week.

We brought out our new snow clothes that I went and bought the ni
ght before the storm. Our girls have never needed any clothes just made for snow. It pays to buy them at the end of the season because I found them all 80% off!

Here are a few photos of evidence that winter came our way this year.Annie Kate trying to keep the girls from going down too fast! they are on like 6" of solid ice.

Score on the clothes for sure. I always hate paying full price for clothes you know you will only wear a few times.

You guys seem to be making the best of the snow. Is it spring yet?? Cute pictures.

These photos are precious! Looks like such a fun day. Have you started putting this stuff in scrapbooks for your girls yet?

What a deal! Too perfect that you could score some major deals on cute snow clothes! I had no doubt you would be making the most of the snow.

Your girls look so cute with their new snow clothes. I love matching winter attire but never actually buy it.

I'm glad you guys had such a great day playing in the snow.

PS - your hair looks very cute.

It snowed on top of the volcano in Hawaii this year and everyone was going crazy.

I had to go buy sweatshirts and Jeans to take the kids to Disneyland while we are visiting California.

The ice slide on the stairs is crazy fun.

I love that first picture with little Sally Jane on the end of the sled. Too cute! Way to go getting the snow clothes the night before the storm and at such a deal! Have fun!

Liz said...

Fun! Ben took our girls sledding at the school, it has a great hill and they had so much fun! Score on the snow clothes. You can sometimes get them really cheap at resale stores, I got Jared one that is brand new for $10!

Mandy said...

Oh, I love these pictures! I'm glad you are all making the most of your weather. I am over ours and Ryley is still sick so we can't even try to enjoy it. Too cute!

Amanda :-) said...

What an uplifting set of photos, Kristi - thanks for sharing!

Poor Jeff, pulling that sled! But that's a dad's job, isn't it? ;-P

LOVE your pink nails, too!

Barb said...

Great photography in the last couple of posts! I especially like the way my eye is drawn back to Caroline when her dad is pulling her in the sled. I also love the movement in the flag at the Washington Monument.

Kristi,

I love your angle of photography, too...especially the sled one. What a great idea.

I love your method of scrapbooking, too :)

And. . . I love the pink silhouette by your address! Very clever.

I look forward to every blog entry.
Thanks for keeping such a good one for all us.

These are great photos Kristi! I can't believe the stairs have turned into a snow-covered slide like that. It looks so fun with all of you playing out there together. I'm so glad you're in some of the pictures too.

lauralee said...

great pictures... I am impressed with your eye for a good shot! great deal on the clothes.. that is the best, not paying full price! hope you are thawing out over there!

It's great seeing all the pictures from DC. Have you hit the spy museum downtown yet? Potomac Mills is great for shopping - it's about 30 minutes south around Woodbridge, VA. There's also a great hiking day-trip to Paw Paw, WV through the B&O tunnel.

On another note, the pillow you made featured in your recent blog - did you emroider it by hand or your sewing machine? It's really beautiful!

amy m said...

Looks like a lot of fun in the snow. Darling photographs.

The green frog boots are the best!
Cute pix! My kids would LOVE to sled like that for the day - then get back to our winter of sandals!heehee -ciao

Elisa said...

Cute hair cut, it looks great. I love how snow clothes are so bright against the snow, pictures always are so vibrant!

Claudissima said...

wow this pictures bring back memories...I lived in washington DC when I was 4 for a couple of years...and I remember the snow and all the fun activities we did, and looking at all the pictures from your girls it kind of makes me remember....(although I have NO pictures of the SNOW days...but SUMMER yes--all over the Washington DC Monuments...) such a fantastic place to grow up and visit...thank you for sharing!

melanie said...

Your stairs look positively delightful to a child. Scary to me, I'm sure I would break something (the klutz in me!) The girls are darling, I'm glad you got such good deals on the clothes, who doesn't love that? Happy day for your clan Kristi!

andrea said...

Great pictures of the girls in their cute new outfits. Looks like you guys enjoyed the snow.

lelly said...

kristi, i'm dying to know what camera you are using. i'm sure 90% of your awesome pictures are becauase of the great photographer and subjects!! but a great instrument must be helpful.

i am having severe camera disappointment issues.

it's going to be 70 degrees here at the end of the week. i actually would love to see a little snow...

Chanel said...

What a fun time. I'm sure your girls are in heaven with that wonderland out your front door.

Also it's so fun to see Jeff with the girls, I'm glad that he is finally not working 24-7.

Love the new hair!

Kristi Brooke said...

Lets see if I can answer a few questions.

my camera is the Nikon D80 and i have to say it is 99% the camera. i feel like the more i learn the less i know and it seriously is doing all th work, i promise!

any embroidery you see on items is from my sewing machine. I have a brother sewing machine. if you are interested in buying one you can look at my FAQ on the top of my blog and check out my sidebar under "sew with me" to find a great steal of where to buy sewing machines.

Michelle A. we have been to the spy musuem and it was great. It gives a sting having to pay to get in because everything is free but we did love it. I will put your items on our to do list.
