Me And Mine January, My Captured Moment

This post is so late, but I decided better late than never. I want to create a post for each month so I can make another collage next year. We took these snaps a couple of weeks ago when we had a week of glorious snow. On this particular day the wind was driving so hard across the hills and it was freezing, but not much keeps us in.

The boys were desperate to get their sledges out and hit the hills, so we wrapped up warm, topped up Jacks carbs and set off for a long winters walk. It is such a relief when the ground is finally frozen. When the weather is consistently wet you just cant get out on the hills. The puddles get so deep, I remember Joe once stepped into a puddle and it went to his waist, we had to drag him out.

The boys spent ages sledging down hills and then running back up dragging the sledge behind them, Toby excitedly running alongside saying to keep up. I always wonder why they don’t get bored on going up and down the same hill? Though they never do.

Lets face it, snow is exciting for adults, or is it just me? But the feeling I got as a child, when I woke in the morning to a white world was just magical. And living here really is like a winter wonderland on days like this, when you get out on those fields with nothing but countryside around you, you really could be anywhere.

In true Christie form getting a shot of us all looking, smiling, not pulling silly faces, is virtually impossible, so I have shared my favourites. There is never one great photo just a collection of crazy shots, but that is my little mad family.

    Lovely pictures! You seem to have had quite a bit of snow. We only had a sprinkling a few weeks ago. Not enough to take the sledge out, but we built a teeny tiny snowman :-). I wouldn’t mind a few more snowy days this year. #MyCapturedMoment

    This seems such a great project to be involved in each month. You certainly had lots of snow which make for gorgeous pictures. I bet your heart was in your mouth when Joe jumped in that deep puddle x

    Wow! All of that snow on the countryside does truly make it a winter wonderland. How lovely! We are having such a warm winter here in the southern US, and we haven’t had any snow at all this year.

      It has been beautiful, and not disruptive which makes a change. I love snow and all the joy it brings the boys x
