Enjoying it while it Lasts

The snow started during the early morning and didn’t stop until mid afternoon.

We hurried into our snow suits, mittens, and hats before the sun melted it away again.

Slushy, muddy, and mild winters aren’t something we’re used to.

Give us blistering winds, blinding snow storms, and freezing rain.

Snow days, boots covered in salt, and rosy cheeks.

Excuses for hot chocolate, warm sweaters, and cuddling under the blanket.

All of the great things that a Canadian winter has to offer.

    Great pics! I actually miss snow this year too. It melts hours after we get it. We have had a dry winter in NY too. It is expected to snow today, so maybe the kids will actually get their snowsuits on for the third time this year…

    so jealous. Looks like you guys had a lot of fun. Here? The most snow we had was less than an inch and it didnt even stick to the roads.

      Ours has only recently stuck to the roads. It’s snowing again today and I’m home from work because of the storm.

    A canoe and a quad!! What a great idea… and something that my husband would love!

    Our winter here has sucked this year… the amount of snow we have gotten has been so little compared to other years. We haven’t even been able to go snowmobiling.

      I didn’t go on it because I didn’t wear snow pants but it looked like a lot of fun!

    I can appreciate the beauty of a snow day (although I’m glad I don’t get snow here 😉 ) It was always so much fun growing up and having snow and a day we could play and then warm up.

      I was so bummed that we didn’t have snow at Christmas.. I’m kinda glad we’re getting it now!

    Growing up I would love snow days because it meant we were off from school. Now? I hate it. I am so not a winter person! Luckily for me we’ve had a mild winter this year.

      It’s making up for lost time this year.. maybe you’ll see some snow soon.

    Hahahaha! I love the canoe being pulled behind the 4-wheeler . . . I never thought to do that before!

    This winter has pretty much sucked. I love how you guys raced out ASAP to make the most of the white stuff!

      As if YOU never thought to pull a canoe behind a four wheeler.
      I don’t believe it.
      Yes.. this winter has sucked.
      Are you getting this storm??

    We have missed getting snow totally this year. We would love a little snow!

      Today we are in the middle of a snow/freezing rain storm.
      maybe I will send some to you

    I hate to say it…since my body revolts against cold…but I do miss having the snow. Chunky is so super pumped when he gets to play out there and it gets him out of my hair.

      I would enjoy the cold more if I had winter boots that kept my feet warm.
      And a winter coat that kept me warm.
      I have neither one of those.
      Instead I have an awesome basket to hold photo albums.
      When I asked for a coat and boots for christmas he must have heard differently.

    I’m in love with the canoe behind the atv idea. I mean more then in love. I need snow right now because I need to do this.

      I didn’t do it because I didn’t have snow pants but it sounded like a lot of fun!

      It’s freezing rain and snow here today! Lots and lots of snow but I’m not confident it will stay long.
      You’re right, it’s been a strange winter.

    my kids are desperate to see snow…
    my Jack just wished for snow on the wishbone the other day…and cried when he didn’t get it…

      AWWWWW. That`s so sweet.
      It`s snowing and freezing rain again today. Winter has come very late.
      Maybe some of our will come your way

      That slideshow took me forever to figure out!!
      I have no idea how other bloggers make it look so easy.
      Shhh don`t tell anyone LOL

    Looks like tons of fun! My girls are so sad we’ve only had one, very small, snow this year. Maybe next year.

    • multitaskingmumma
      March 1, 2012 | 8:16 am

      We have another snow storm today… plus freezing rain.
      Winter has hit us late but we`ll take it.
      Maybe it will come your way!

    We don’t get out enough over here – I’m just not that keen on the prep that goes along getting them all done up. They go out twice at school.. done. LMAO

    One of these days, I’m going to experience a winter like that. I wouldn’t even know what to do with myself. I probably wore my coat less than six times this “winter”.

    Leighann, I just loved reading this. And the photos are beautiful. I hope you had fun out in the snow–it sure looks like your little sweetie was enjoying her sled ride 🙂

    It blows my mind sometimes that at the same time I am sitting by the pool in eighty degree weather other people are sliding down a snow covered hill! I love winter! I feel like it’s been summer here for months.

      It really is!
      But there’s a lot of dressing and then waddling and undressing, and dressing lol
