    The boys really put a lot of thought and work into that snow fort – awesome! I’m drooling over that cup of hot chocolate, lol. Very nice. ~ Julie 🙂

    I wish we had that much snow here in Michigan! A week ago we got a foot, and we made a snowman and a fort, and a huge snow pile and a jump for sledding and skiing off of. Great photos, I am very jealous!

    This is great, makes me not shun winter so much…

  4. Brings back memories of fun winter days – and that cup of hot cocoa after a day spent playing in the snow… 🙂

  5. The boys are rewarded for their hard work with a nice cup of cocoa, well worth the work put in!

  6. Stunning photos – have come out a couple times just to see them again – wonderful post.

  7. My sons and their friend did the same last weekend when we had a bit more snow. The oldest and his friend even tried to spend the night in it. They lasted about four hours, much more than I would have. Good memories. 🙂

  8. Oh, I remember doing these same things on one or two rare occasions when we had a genuine snowfall in central Mississippi in the 50s of my childhood! We ALWAYS had made-from-scratch hot chocolate with lots of marshmallows on top served up by our loving mother!

    The black and white shot is stunning.. Makes me want to go out in the snow and make snow angels and build forts with friends!

  10. Go up a little farther north, call that an igloo…

  11. Winter can be such a wonderful time to be with those we love. This post captures that serenely!
