Former Fixer Upper star Joanna Gaines was met with quite the surprise when her Waco, Texas hometown got some snow this past weekend. But instead of staying indoors and drinking hot cocoa during the winter weather, she adorably took her baby son Crew Gaines outside to go have some fun!
“Snoooow Day! ❄️,” Joanna, 40, captioned an Instagram pic of herself covered in snow on Sunday, February 3. “Great picture,” one fan commented and another similarly wrote, “That is precious! Good magazine cover!!” The mom-of-five also shared another photo of her 8-month-old baby boy laying in the white fluff and adorably captioned the pic, “My very own snow angel.”
After Joanna’s fans took one glimpse at baby Crew’s new photo, they immediately commented on how cute her son looked in his little gray snowsuit. “Frame this!” one of her followers gushed and another wrote, “Cutest snow angel I have ever seen!”
Though Joanna seemingly loves posting sweet snapshots of her kids and family on Instagram, she recently wrote in The Magnolia Journal that posting on social media has become a bit of a chore for her. “I could feel insecurity creep in, and posting a photo was no longer an act of enjoying the in-the-moments of life but rather a more calculated decision,” she confessed. “With every picture I found myself critiquing if there were messy backgrounds or blurry smiles … Eventually, I realized that I was letting this small square on my phone become yet another thing to perfect.”
Once Joanna realized that she was doing a lot to edit her photos like dressing her kids in cute outfits or staging her pictures with props to create an “alternate reality,” she knew she had to stop. “My best next step is to stop scrolling and put my phone away,” she said. “That’s way harder for me to do when I’m not in a great place in my head or heart, but continuing down the rabbit hole never, ever helps a thing.”
