  1. Happy New Year! Thanks be to you for all the “right stuff” you share with us. Artsyjs

  2. We have a lot of snow, but are getting more on Thursdsy. Thank you so much for the great ideas. Hours of fun!

  3. Great ideas!! Thanks for sharing them!

  4. We’ve got tons of snow – too bad we can’t bottle and ship it off! Despite being retired, next snowfall I am going to go out and draw a happy face on the car and add some fun to the neighborhood. These young parents around hear (who never smile or speak) are so high strung, they will only think we are crazier than before!!LOL! Can’t wait to see the look on their face!!! LOL!

  5. wow! what fun. No snow in Northern California (not too far north) when we get a rare snow fall we are as giddy as little kids who get to do all those fun things in the snow. Beautiful photos. Happy New Year!

  6. Whenever my kids are stuck indoors, we always put on an audiobook to accompany whatever they’re doing. There’s lots of great sites to download them, but we use this one a lot because all of the stories are free and original. Here’s the link for anyone who is interested.

    My kids love playing in the snow. In the frigid Pittsburgh weather we get every year you better love it! There is no avoiding it. Thanks for the post.
