"Let It Snow, Let It Snow, Let It Snow"

It is amazing how much the weather has an impact on our lives, especially when you live in the Midwest. I can remember growing up as a child just loving the cold and how the snow seemed to bring so many new and adventurous activities to light. And no matter how long we stayed outside, or how cold we got...we always wanted to head back out asap!

Well today was a day I will never forget; my son's first snow day.
I'm sure we all can remember when we had those snow days right? How exciting it was to be able to stay home and just play! Well, that is what we did today. And you can tell from the BIG smile on his face (above) that life is GOOD! :)
I bundled him up pretty good but he still got the red cheeks and no matter how many times I told him to come in....he went running away and landed in the middle of highest snow pile. That was okay with see my son enjoying such a wonderful day, well....those are moments to really cherish!
I hope you were able to make some snow memories with your children too!
