Although my children and husband had ventured out into our Winter Wonderland, I had yet to experience the joy. Yesterdays temperatures were in the 40's and the sun was shining. I was beckoned forth to enjoy the outdoor world, not simply relying on opening the patio door for a breath of fresh, oh-so-cold air. We bundled up and what was originally going to be a simple walk on our mostly cleared streets turned into hiking through knee high (and Roone-high) snow drifts, snowball fights and eating snow. What is it about snowball fights? I don't know, but I haven't laughed that hard in a long time! Just ask my husband, it takes a lot to get me to REALLY laugh, you know, belly laugh. Ella's imagination was in full throttle and there we were, as she proclaimed, in Antarctica.
