♫ There's No Business Like Snow Business, Like No Business I Know ♫

♪ " There's No Business Like Snow Business, Like No Business I Know"

 Snow Angels
Plop down in the snow on your back ~ wave your arms and legs ~ get up and there will be an Angel imprint in the snow!

This Angel is made by Sam, age 14.  
 Snowmen or Snowgirl
Snow People
 Shape a snow person, the best you can. As you can see, Walter is a skinny snowman. He already started his 2015 diet and has done very well!!
Add some fun sunglasses, hat, scarf, mittens for decorations.
Or use nature. 
Pine cones for eyes, twigs for a smile or pine branches for hair.

Snow Fort
 Our boys are very creative in making snow forts. Tunnels, high walls, cutting out some of the area of the wall for a window. Adding food coloring to make designs for signs.
Using nature to add to the fort. So many fun ideas.

  "The cold wind burns my face, and blows 
Its frosty pepper up my nose."
 Robert Louis Stevenson


  1. I love the snow angel. My boys always loved making forts out of snow....they still do! Enjoy your day my friend! Stay warm!

  2. Fabulous, Carla! I love all their creations. The shades on Walter are so cool. LOL Have a wonderful day! Nancy

  3. I made lots of snow angels and snowmen and forts when I was young. It was so much fun.

    Nice snowman.

  4. Thanks for making me remember the fun of snow days!! Today, all I think about is treacherous driving conditions when I need to carpool...I like your vision better! ;) Stay warm!

  5. Oh I use to love making snow angels as a kid. Your snowman is quite adorable too!

  6. I absolutely love how you and your family embrace the season and enjoy it! You help me change my way of thinking :)

  7. What a fun post! Those boys are brave to go out in this weather. So glad to know that there are still kids who make snow forts. Our kids always loved doing that. Sam makes a very handsome snow angel. :-). And your snowman has personality! Love the RLS quotation.

  8. I love your snow angel! I would love to see your boys actually making one...I bet they look so cute!

  9. There's something truly magical about snow Angels and all the Winter creations you can make. It's easy to forget as you get older. Thanks for the reminder my friend!

  10. I'm glad you're having so much fun in the snow!!! The snowman is great!

  11. How fun it is to play in the snow. I'm waiting and hoping we will get some here in the California mountains, but so far nothing this year. Thanks for becoming a follower. I am now your latest follower.

  12. That is one cool snowman! I love it. We are really cold here but no snow.

  13. What fun shots! Love the snow angel.

  14. I love the fort and fun snowfolk. My cousins and I would make forts and then have a snowball fight to see which fort would rule the kingdom. Oh the memories. TFS Janice
