We had the pleasure of extending our two week Christmas Vacation by two extra days due to heavy snow this week! The kids were thrilled and played outside for hours and hours each day, filling our yard with snow forts, caves and tunnels. I joined them and rediscovered my love of building snow forts … my dad used to plow our long driveway and we’d build all sorts of caves and tunnels through the big piles; those are some of my favorite childhood memories. Oh, and I shoveled. A lot. Check out this snowball on Sam’s shoelace.
