Snow

What an original title...that ought to grab your interest. I'm feeling a bit "off" this week. Perhaps it's due to a lack of sunshine. I could use a beach day right about now; the problem is that it's mid January and I live in New England. The only thing we've had around here is snow; I don't really mind the snow, but I'm pretty much done...all set until next year.





The snow has really been beautiful this year. Although it has done some damage to the trees, it looks so pretty when there are blankets of snow covering everything.





To help remedy the winter blues, hubby made a big snow hill in the back yard. It's been a really fun way for the kids to get outdoors and have some winter fun. I even tried it a few times.

Here are some links of Little Miss sledding and E "snowboarding". Enjoy!

"When it snows, you have two choices: shovel or make snow angels. "

A snowflake is one of God's most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!

If anyone is looking for a good winter picture book to read to their kids, Snowflake Bentley is a great one. And, here is a website that tells more about "Snowflake Bentley".
