Arkansas was recently hit with an unexpected winter storm. It reminded me of the one that arrived last year on Christmas Day; we had more than a foot of snow then at our house!
There are only a few children on the street where we now live—not like it was 10 or 15 years ago. Once upon a time, snowflakes meant snowmen in the our front yard, boys and girls having snowball fights, and sleds soaring down the hill.
Those days there was hot chocolate ... wet shoes and mittens and hats everywhere ... and, of course, lots of pictures! (Can you relate?)
As I watched flakes of snow fall and ice accumulate on the trees last weekend, I wondered if our nearby grands were having fun.
Last year they made not only a snow man, but also a snow woman, and a snow child. Picturing their snow family, I can't help but smile and imagine the wet shoes and mittens and hats in their house ... the hot chocolate ... and pictures—lots of pictures.
Have you had a recent winter storm at your house? How did you capture the memories?
Have a great week,
