For the Love of Snow

Blog Challenge #24

We have gotten our share of snow this season. Not a lot if you are comparing it to the northern states but a lot for us. I love snow. Even though I have to drive to work in it I still love to see it falling from the sky. One of my favorite things to do is sit in front of a fireplace while watching the snow fall. Surrounded by family of course (and maybe even some comfort food.....shhhhhh!). As all children love snow mine were not different. Not only was it the hope of school closing but of being able to sleigh ride. Still to this day I pay close attention to school closing even though those days are long gone. It puts a smile on my face just knowing how happy the kids will be to hear those three wonderful words...."School Is Closed".  Even though my kids are no longer young I get to experience the joy of snow through my granddaughter. Recently my son-in-law took her out sleigh riding and my daughter (a professional photographer) took these wonderful photos. I hope they bring a smile to your face. Enjoy!!

PS...the last photo is one I took when my kids were little and had the day off from school due to snow. The youngest is missing from the photo because he wasn't born yet. My daughter (Lucy's Mom) is in the middle.
