I somehow managed to avoid any snow around Christmas, even though my hometown got dumped on Christmas Eve while I was headed up north where snow is supposed to be inevitable, yet wasn’t. When I went to visit Mark’s parents my luck changed, and we got an entire day’s worth of thick, fresh powder. By Saturday afternoon his neighborhood was blanketed in white.
We took my two favorite golden furballs out to play in the snow after we finished shoveling the driveway. They love the snow just like we do, and right away started pouncing and digging around the fresh piles. Their favorite thing to do is try to catch snow balls we throw in the air. Profitta is getting a little old for it, but Seamus is still as athletic as ever.
I didn’t have my Canon on this trip so Mark’s dad let me borrow his Nikon D5000. It was a lot of fun using another type of camera, even though I had to shoot in auto because I could not for the life of me figure out how to change any settings (which also made me so appreciate my Canon’s manual option!). The Nikon was a really neat little camera, and took some awesome photos.
We hope those of you who got some snow enjoyed it with your pets – whether it was playing outside or snuggling up on the couch inside.
Happy last day of 2012!
