Let It Snow...

Friday, December 9, 2011

Ever thought of having a little celebration to welcome the first snow? Well, Ann Marie has a wonderful little tradition of first snow-fall picnic each year. She packs up a basket full of goodies like, hot cocoa with marshmallows, grilled tomato-cheese sandwiches and drives to her favourite spot in the mountains for a little celebration of the crisp-cold season.

My darlings, aren’t simple pleasures in life the best? Do you have any special traditions you can hardly wait for each year? (Ours is the pancake party we throw each year on the December 5th).

aww, this makes me want to cry, how sweet. God, I miss the snow so much.
Maybe as my son get older we will have to instill a fun tradition.

I love these photos! Oh how I want to adopt that wonderful tradition. Our snow tradition is to make sure I have loads of hot cocoa on hand for afterwards.
