Some of you in colder climates will chuckle, but here in western Oregon it rarely snows or gets very cold.
But, lucky us, Friday brought temperatures in the 20s and 8 inches of snow!
And since then it's been very cold and sunny - perfect weather for no school and lots of playing outside.
And snow brings out such innovation and creativity - note old skis being attached to old wheelbarrow bucket.
And I love taking pictures in the snow and ice.
There's so much sparkle and brilliant light.
And then, of course, there are requisite cozy fires, hot chocolate (or eggnog lattes), and soup.
We've enjoyed so much wonderful family time together this weekend. It's really what memories are made of and I'm treasuring every moment.
