Wishing for Snow instead of rain.

Family all over Canada have been facebooking about snow.
I love snow.
However living on Vancouver island we don't see much of it.
Some years we see no snow at all on the lower end of the island.
When the snow does come though the island shuts down.
We don't have the same snow removal equipmet that the rest of Canada has.
The best part of the islands lack of snow preparedness is SNOW DAY!
When the snow comes we usually get one or two days that a lot of us get to play hooky from work and school.
The kids get to go sledding with sleds that collect more years of dust than use.
Snow ball fights.
The absolute quiet that seems to come when the world around us gets blanketed by the snow.
My favourite part is the Snowmen.
Their life is short here, sometimes it takes the kids all day to build them.
Than just an hour of the inevitable rain to wash him away.
So we love him while he stands.

Ribbon and Snowflake embellishments that I had in my craft room.
