Winter Came!

Pin It

Well, I was "dreaming of a white Christmas" but that never came...we have had unusually "warm"
(above freezing) weather here in the Midwest with barely any snow. Daffodils and bees have been confused and have been growing/flying around! Unheard of in January here.
  As much as I have enjoyed letting the boys run around outside in the sunshine, I missed the snow! Yes, I'm a cold-weather lover. For the most part. Crazy, I know. I just like to enjoy every season.

So, we have had this book "The Snowy Day" by Ezra Jack Keats and have been reading it
to the boys, waiting, waiting for a day of sledding and making footprints. And today, winter came! 
We got to take the little sleds out and walk around the block, and play in the yard. We loved it! 

Here are a few photos of our snowy morning together:

I hope we get even more snow than this--I love sitting here watching the snowflakes fall. But I do always look forward to spring, and I have a few ideas to show you of what can help get you through the long winter that I will post next! Stay tuned...and thanks for visiting ReMadeSimple! 


  1. Okay. So. THIS is something we do not have in common!!!! I do not like cold weather!!!!!! LOL But the images of you, the snow and your beautiful family? I like those. :) See, back in agreement!
