We got a bit of snow flurries yesterday. It wasn't enough to make a fuss over, but there was snow to be seen.

Around here, snow is a rarity. We hardly ever get enough to play with. Last year it snowed one night, but was gone in the morning. Luckily, we had bundled the kids up at 9:00 at night instead of going to bed. We went out and played in the snow and got lots of pictures.

If you do get snow - and enough to play with - then make sure you take full advantage of the magic that snow creates. Get your kids outside and play with them in the cold snow. Snow ball fights are lots of fun. Show them how to make snow angels and build snow forts. Then, after you're all worn out (and frozen solid) go in and make up some hot chocolate for everybody.

Your kids will cherish the memories you create when you do these simple little things. It's important to join them in their games instead of just sending them out to play. They'll remember that you took the time to be involved, even when you might have preferred staying inside and being warm.
