Hi! Another snow week as we had two snowstorms pass through. School was cancelled or delayed many mornings so my two were often at home. I continued to stalk (with a camera!) the deer in the woods on our road. And, of course, this was week 7 for Project 365.
A parrot hand puppet made an appearance while I was taking photos of the “with love” cards my kids had made. The Parrot is called Blue and is one of my son’s favourite cuddlies.
No signs of new life in the garden. After all it’s another snow week.
On a short walk after school the sun lit up my twins. And then I caught their hug.
Ice, duck and setting sun on the local pond.

I’m a huge fan of Google+. I’m going to be launching this week the first in a series of posts on how to enjoy, share and grow on Google Plus, do’s and don’ts, which I hope will be useful. As I’m still on a learning curve, I’ve been following and engaging with some of its top pros and plan to regularly share any new Google+ tips on my blog and in my newsletter. Plus a monthly G+ “hopscotch”. This morning my son helped come up with this design as a cover image for my first post. My daughter says she has a great idea for another one…
It’s snowing again as I write but hopefully this has been the last snow week for a while. I’m hoping for some sunshine as my two are home for their Mid-winter holiday this week.
Wishing you a lovely week ahead.

Absolutely fantastic photos Kriss – I love the deer (that stalking has paid off!) and the one of your daughter on her own especially. They’re all beautiful though. Thank you so much for your amazing comment about the butterflies 🙂
Charly your butterfly photos were simply stunning – hey anyone reading this go have a look!
Jo Laybourn says
kriss, what a stunning photo of your daughter in the garden. I love it! Will be keen to learn more about Google+! Great design by your son too!
Thanks Jo – glad to hear that you’re interested in knowing more about G+!

Awesome close up shots! Brrr all that snow…at least you seem to be able to enjoy it some.
It’s snowing again as I write – aargh!
Elaine Livingstone says
your daughter is beautiful, that yellow jacket really suits her, Thats a great cover image for your first post.
The deer looks rather wary, and your ducks make a great picture
Thank you for the lovely comments and encouragement.
Thank you! I think the deer keep wondering who’s the mad woman following them in the woods!
Kate @ Family Fever says
What beautiful snow photos, I am very jealous of your snow!
It’s snowing again right now – I’m just counting the days to spring!
Such a beautiful deer shot as well as the snowy scenes. It looks like yuo’ve had a fun week!
With so many snow days or mornings at home I had to keep the kids busy!
Life With ASD and Me says

Ohh I’m so jealous of your great deer shot, the ones at our house always scarper when I get too close. Stunning photo of your daughter too. Mich x
I’m turning into a deer stalker – at least in the woods on my road! Can’t wait until I eventually get a zoom lens for my new camera and can get better shots without practically hugging them.
Alexandra Mercer says
Your photos are as lovely as ever x
Thank you once again for such a lovely comment.
I adore your photography, thanks for taking a part in this project because it is a joy to see your world. The exploring snow pictures are just amazing, your daughter is stunningly beautiful and that photograph is worthy of a professional magazine photo. Love the one of your son with the cars.
Thanks for linking up to Project 365.
Thank you, thank you for the lovely comments and support – and for hosting project 365

I adore the snow on the hydrangea! One of my favourite plants 🙂
I’m looking forward to the snow melting and the hydrangea coming back to life!
Ruth @geekmummy says
Beautiful, beautiful pictures. The one of your daughter is just stunning. And I love that your son helped you with your G+ picture – I must make sure I’m connected with you over there 🙂
your deer is very regal looking! and your children are beautiful, lovely captures. I just don’t get g+ so I’ll be back for all the tips you can dish out 🙂
Great – I hope you’ll find some useful tips and info so that you learn to really enjoy G+!
will keep a close eye on your google+ posts, certainly baffles me!
Stunning photography as always – what kind of camera are you using Kriss? The shots are so clear! I am really looking forward to your G+ posts, I’m still in the dark a bit but notice you use it a lot 🙂
I was very lucky as was given a Sony Alpha Nex camera at Christmas – now am saving up for a zoom lens. Great to hear Suzanne you’re interested in reading the G+ posts.
The deer pic is beautiful (as are all of your pics!) but I do particularly love your use of light in your pic of your children, just stunning! 🙂
These shots are beautiful – despite my love of warmth, I’m envious of these delightful snowy scenes. Gorgeous images of your children, too. I’d really benefit from a Google+ tutorial – I’m hopeless, not a clue how it all works!
Menai Newbould (@MenaiN) says
Simply beautiful shots – what light in the snow and how wonderful to have a hug on record! I really look forward to seeing more. I am just learning more about g+ (great cover shot – the red really pops!) from a lady on Facebook co-ordinating a group – if you’re interested do let me know!
Jaime Oliver says
I so cant wait to read some tips on G+ i so want to get my teeth into it x
Sara (@mumturnedmom) says
I’m not too sad to have escaped the snow this past week 🙂 You know I love that photo of your twins in the sunshine, and I love the g+ in cars (also loved the first post!)
