With snow falling yet again today (though much to our dismay, not sticking all that well), it's taken me back to our snow days as kids.
Jodi would come running in to wake me up and get me going, we'd get all bundled up (not quite to the extreme of the little boy in "Christmas Story") and we would just go - all - day!
Could not get enough of the stuff!
And, I guess still can't! :)
But, we had a ball.
We were fortunate enough to have the best plot of land in Illinois for sledding. For those of you who've been to (or more likely through) Illinois, you know it is flat. As a pancake. From end to end.
But, we actually lived on a nice little hill that had the BEST driveway for sledding!! Not only was it just the right slope, it had just enough twists and turns in it to keep it exciting. It was awesome.
And, when we got snow... we - got - snow!
So much fun... and so many great memories from those beautiful wintry days.
