We had snow in Seattle overnight! The kids woke up to a few inches, and it was perfectly timed on a home day for the twins, and a sick day for Avery. The public schools had a 2 hour delayed start, but she was still running a bit of a temp this morning so we decided to keep her home today. The last time we had snow in the city was 3 years ago, when the twins were a little over 1. So can you blame me for being woefully unprepared as far as gear is concerned?!
The kids quickly ate breakfast, Benny helped make my coffee, then I did my best to bundle them up as warmly as possible, but still, we were out in rain boots, crappy mittens, and too thin pants. Oh well. Needless to say they had a ton of fun making snow balls, running around, clearing the snow off of Meimi’s car, riding in our neighbor’s sled, making snow angels, oh and lots and lots of eating of snow! We did have a conversation later about not eating dirty or yellow snow! Ha!
Perhaps this year I will invest in some proper snow gear for all of us, but what can I say? I am easily overwhelmed. Anyway, I hope you enjoy the photos! They sure do put me in the holiday spirit, and coincidentally my Christmas cards arrived today so while the kids are napping, I’ll be sitting by the fireplace addressing those to friends near and far. I hope your December is off to a great start!
Carrie Yuan is a documentary family photographer in Seattle, Washington, specializing in documentary family photography sessions that honestly tell the story of your family’s here and now. Carrie’s passion is to document the full-of-love journey that is parenthood and childhood (with a sprinkling of humor), in all its chaos & beauty. Carrie lives in Seattle with her family: a husband who insists on no more pets after becoming the default dog walker, a seven year old who’s asking Santa for the crazy mermaid tail, four year old boy/girl twins who would be one amazing swimmer if only we could squish them into one person, and a lab-ridgeback canine who is getting tired of all of our holiday package deliveries.
Carrie is currently booking family documentary photo (and/or FILM…as in video) sessions (that do NOT require the purchase of new outfits, or cleaning your house), in-home newborn sessions in the Greater Seattle area, and hospital newborn sessions in Seattle hospitals in 2017 and beyond.
