Winter Begins!

“A snowflake is one of God’s most fragile creations, but look what they can do when they stick together!”

~Unknown

I have a love/hate relationship with the winter season, but I always end up looking forward to it every year… The snow transforms our ordinary town into an enchanted world where young eyes sparkle with excitement. It brings families together for an adventurous day of snowman building and hot coco drinking by the fireplace. This season is so memorable and amazing. Wishing you all a beautiful first day of winter 2018-19!

Body: How many snowmen have you made? Feel free to share some memories!

I don’t even know! It may sound childish, but I make a snowman with my family whenever there is snow on the ground (big or small). We actually made two just a few days ago! 🙂

Head: What’s your favorite Christmas memory?

I have A LOT of great Christmas memories, but I would have to admit that last weekend was the most snow that I have ever seen in my entire life! I will never forget how incredible it felt to walk outside to over a foot of snow crunching under my feet…

Carrot nose: What’s your favorite vegetable for Christmas dinner/ whatever you eat on this day? 

I love it when my mom makes baked sweet potatoes with marshmallows and cinnamon! It is a family favorite…

Buttons: If you have a Christmas jumper, what does it look like?

Unfortunately, I do not own a Christmas jumper. Sorry!

Stone Smile: What makes you smile the most at winter?

My family and friends bring such great joy to me, and they always make me so happy around the holidays.

Stone eyes: What do you have to watch at Christmas? (This could be a movie, TV show, or even an advert!)

There are so many movies that I watch each year at Christmas time, but Home Alone and The Polar Express are always the first two that I watch. 

Twig arms: Have you ever done any snow angels?

Absolutely!!

Gloves: What’s your tactic in a snowball fight?

I don’t really have one!

Hat: What kind of hat do you have?

I have a hat that my mother knitted for me a few years ago, and it is super warm!

Scarf: What’s your favorite Christmas preparation?

I love decorating the house and putting the ornaments on the tree! I look forward to this every year…
