#BlogDare Day 2 When Snow begins to fall...

Blog Dare Day 2 When snow begins to fall...


Newaygo Michigan snow on M-82 2011



Some of my best memories with my children are on the very first day of snowfall each year. I love hearing the little ones yelling "It's snowing, It's snowing"  Someone always brings in a snowball off the porch. They just can not resist to play in it. Even if it is in the warmth of the house, they have to touch it. It seems that the first day of snow is always a great time to sit and watch movies as a family. The sudden feel of cold makes them want to be warm, just because they can see it out there.  

The realization soon sets in that it snowed, when we realize there were some important things we were overlooking...



 We are sure that we do not have all the things in order, that needed to be before the long winter. There are sure to be toys on the lawn, a snow shovel covered up we will be needing, and the weatherization is not complete. Thankfully, most often the snow will melt again giving us time to finish up before winter. I feel like the First snow of the year is always a delightful message from Mother nature, saying that we need to get our "butts in gear" and prepare for the long winter.

I love the snow and can not believe that I live in Colorado and we do not have snow on the ground! I found your blog on the bloggy moms blog hop. I hope you are having a great day.
