Snapshots from Winter in New Hampshire - The Magic Onions

Snapshots from Winter in New Hampshire

 

I’ve taken some videos from our winter here in New Hampshire and thought you might like to get a glimpse into how magical it’s been for us.

I haven’t really shared video here before and cringe a little at my voice and tone of excitement… I just can’t seem to be calm when the snow is falling… ha ha! The first couple don’t have sound.

The other day, we had gorgeous BIG snowflakes that fell all day long. The kids were super excited to get the ‘snow day’ call from school and spent the day playing and skating in the snow. I’ve spent my time watching it fall. Watching snow fall is my favorite thing to do these days. You’d think it would get old but it hasn’t.

 

 

We started to feel sorry for the birds as the snow covers all the ground and grasses and we were wondering where they get their food from. So, we put out a treat for them… a seed bell and a tray of apple pieces.
Who was first to the feast? You guessed it… Mr Squirrel!
Mr Cat can now be found at the kitchen window, trying to shoo Mr Squirrel away from the bird treats. There is an ongoing dispute between the birds and the squirrel and, now, the cat! Watching the shenanigans at the kitchen window is one of my favorite things to do.

 

 

Snow sometimes swirls around like glitter in the air.

 

 

For all our friends who don’t get snow, I can’t tell you how exciting it is for the kids when they get the early morning call letting them know that school has been cancelled. They whoop and holla and run around the dining room table chanting ‘snow-day, snow-day’!

 

 

Here are my little bird friends, feasting in the snow.

 

 

Yesterday was windy and COLD… but the boys braved the sledding hill again. I sat this one out in the car… but loved it all the same.

 

 

Blessings and magic,

Donni
