I love you snow!

Snow makes me happy. I'm not sure where this love came from, but it would be fine with me if it snowed every day from December through February. There are just so many fun things to do in the snow!

We turned a large box into a snow fort.
The kids built snowmen in the front lawn, which stood there for over a month.
Soldier Hollow sledding hill is only 10 minutes from our house.
Any honest person would have to admit that it's super duper fun to clear the driveway with a snowblower. Talk about instant gratification. The snow shoots in a beautiful arc onto the lawn, and the driveway is cleared. It's especially fun to see the results in places of thick snow. Like by the mail box. There's practically a wall of snow with a straight vertical edge where the snow blower picked everything up.
We live within 30 minutes of 4 ski resorts. We don't go to the resort often, but the option is there.
On top of all the fun stuff to do, it's just beautiful to look at. And unless it's a blizzard, the roads are maintained very well, so it doesn't negatively impact me at all. After several snow storms we haven't even had 1 snow day from school.
Besides the snow, the cold is fun too. Sterling went ice fishing with his friend Hyrum. Winter had her ice skating birthday party.

Our friends the Calderwoods have a family cabin that we got invited to. We enjoyed snowmobiling, sledding, and just general playing in the snow and mountains. 

Ultimate sledding: no hiking needed. Lisa would drag everyone and the sleds back to the top of the hill each time
Since Miles isn't walking yet, and he was pretty sick, he didn't have very much fun in the snow
 It's so nice having good friends!

I'm glad you were able to come with us that day. Otherwise it would have been no fun without running water and a snowmobile that I couldn't turn around by myself. We'll do it again someday.
