👼What Do Angels and Balls Have in Common?❄

Snow! The girls and I had some fun playing in the short stay of chilly frozen water crystals from the sky that gave us a belated white Christmas. When I first moved here, seasons were normal and snow could be counted on for at least two months. Now? We are lucky to have a week of the muddy antagonist. So, we make the best of it while it's here.

You ever look at a thing and it makes your eyes all watery? Snow does that to me, here anyway. It's not as permanent as the trees or seeds you plant. It doesn't have the staying power of a new playground or the longevity of a promise kept since childhood.

Have you ever tried to catch a snowflake? They melt rather quickly, even through frozen gloves or mittens. And so, the snow grows petals as a rose I stop to smell and it gives me time to reflect on things I may or may not have taken for granted. It makes me appreciate things all the more.

Things come and things go. Favorite toys and clothes ultimately get outgrown and lose their spot in the wardrobe or on the shelf. Pets grace us with their short happy memory making ways. Even people, drift in and out of our presence and sometimes completely out of our lives. Remember to cherish the time you are given as you never know how long that actually is. Also, REMEMBER TO BE YOU! I always am, even when the snow shows me its mirror.

So true. My kids are only 6 and 8 and... already 6 and 8!! It passes so quickly. I remember holding them in one hand. I can easily imagine that they will be adults with their own kids and I'll be an old man before I know it. We gotta enjoy now cause it will swiftly be gone!

Looks like the girls had a great time! Hope we get some more snow soon here.

What was your favorite? I kinda like the snowman building because it is a team effort to accomplish a common goal.

It’s between the snowman and sleighing. I used to put my daughter on my shoulders to put the eyes, nose scarf and hat on. I had this two person plastic glider we used going down hills, my daughter would grip my legs as we went down it was a nice feeling.

It was fantastic. We used it so much the bottom got worth through. I’ve never seen another like it since

I mentioned to someone just the other day about how much the weather patterns here have changed. When I was younger there was always plenty of snow on the ground in January. We'd get some rain during the 'January thaw' which would take some of the snow away and then there would be a hard crust when the freeze came back. That day I looked outside, it was raining in January and falling on pretty much green grass. Today, some snow is falling.

Glad I'm not the only one that noticed. Weird. Rained all the snow away here but it's still sub-zero.

You have beautiful children!

They grow up so quickly right before our eyes... It is so easy to get overwhelmed by things that need to be done. But these kids -- we need to be more present for them. Thanks for the reminder.

Why no kids? And DM me on Discord so I can see what you are trying to do.

Those girls look like they are having just so much fun. I do like the snow, too and, like you, see us getting less and less annually. I considered buying a snow maker just so I could cover my own yard with it at Christmas, but just couldn't justify the expense. 😂

Snowmaker could come in handy for other things lol! Be fun in the house in a cool basement. Not sure why, but my imagination is having fun with a skating rink 😁
