A Lighter Look at Winter

Lobsterboy!Generally I'm Ok with wintertime, colder temps, snow and so on. Well, these past few weeks of very cold weather are testing that belief right now, so as a way to combat the negatives of winter, I've decided to do something fun this Friday.

To the right is a photo of my son Nathan, taken last week. I was about to head out and shovel the snow (again) last Saturday, when this crazy idea came into my head, to put my knit hat on Nathan's head and my big leather shoveling gloves on his hands.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's... Lobsterboy!

Nathan loved it! In fact, we had a hard time catching him on camera, because he was running around the house in this getup. I caught him on camera as he ran about and finally, he stopped at the fireplace for a photo session, where I got this shot.

So, if you're cold and getting a little tired of winter wherever you might be, I hope this little lighthearted photo and story brighten your Friday. :-)

Have a great (and warm) weekend!
