  1. Oh, how wonderful!! I remember that unbridled joy as a kid when we had lots of snow. It was best when we had a snow day from school - we'd be outside morning til night! Love your photos!!! Love, Silke

  4. Wonderful, you make me smile.
    I can remember that childhood fun - I grew up in Michigan. Then my children - I could not get them to come in from playing in the snow :)

  5. First thought: Oh, what fun! Second thought: I hope they have a warm place for their mittens to dry.

    Snow here has taken a pause, too, so Ken is clearing out what he can before dark. In my head I keep hearing, "We are in it now!" about this cycle of snow storms that shows no sign of letting up.

    Sending warm thoughts your way ~

  12. Thanks everybody for you loving comments...my angels came inside and made themselves nachos, hung their soaking wet items from a convenient IV pole (doesn't everyone have one?) by the pellet stove to dry...but our doggy angel had no place to hang her coat so she laid down on the with me and made us both cold and soggy...until we dried.

    I just love that at 14 and 17 they can still go out and play like they're 4 and 7!!! (wait, the dog is 7 lol!)

  22. The top photo has a fairy tale quality...falling snow a softer quality of winter. Speaks of peace and listening.

    To take joy where we find it and pause to acknowledge.

    Good things of life, life is filled with good things.
