When I was a kid, I loved winter. Who wouldn't??? It was when my birthday arrived and all the really cool holidays... Thanksgiving, Christmas, school break. And back when I wasn't driving an hour to and from work, the more snow Mother Nature sent us the more I rejoiced... hey, com'on, can you say, SNOW DAY????
I loved playing out in it. There were kids all over our neighborhood so there was no shortage of fun. Have you ever played red light/green light on a iced over ditch? Talk about a challenge! LOL
My mother hated being cold but would agree for us to bundle up and head out in the snowy wonderland. One thing I could count on in my life, that never, ever failed, was that once I was too cold to stay out any longer, my mother would have hot chocolate and sandwiches of graham crackers and peanut butter ready and waiting.
Today, for my snack, staying IN from the snow, I chose my old favorite:
My favorite mug (I have 2 - they're both Eeyore):
The butter shots idea, yeah, that came much, much later. LOL
And a bonus picture of my Dad blowing out the candles on his 85th b-day as my mom looks on:
