Welcome to Friday’s Fave Five, the weekly blessing list hosted by Susanne at Living To Tell The Story.
1. If you have your hat, mittens, snowboots and jacket, you better put them on because for this Friday Fave we’re heading out for some snowfun on Prince Edward Island.
As you can tell. there’s no shortage of snow for fun! 🙂
and look at that brilliant February sunshine!
And believe it or not, despite the wintry look, you can lift your face toward it and feel the warmth.
2. What will we do first? How about snow angels?
Did you ever make them when you were a kid? It’s easy!
- First find some untrodden snow
- Fall backwards into it,
- Next wave your arms and legs in an arc
- then get up.
Wait . . . how did we get up without messing up our angel??
I’ve forgotten that part 🙂
Here’s the cutest little snow angel ever! My grand-niece Norah who is growing up in North Carolina.
She had to come up to PEI to learn how to play in the snow. (although I’ve heard rumours that NC has had their share of snowy weather this year)
Here she is with her proud Nana, my sister-in-law, college roomate, maid of honour and one of my dearest friends, Lorna.
3. She and Norah are getting ready for another Island winter tradition ~ a horse and sleigh ride.
I was sorry to miss this family outing
But my girlie made it. And, by all accounts, it was snowfun of the best kind!
4. Here’s another kind of snowfun ~ building a snow lantern. So simple and so pretty!
A snow lantern takes the sticky snowball kind of snow – which we had for one milder day this week.
Powdery snow, which is great for snowangels, skiing, snowboarding, sledding or snow-shoeing, won’t work for snow lanterns or snowballs or snow forts or snowmen. (Didn’t I tell you there is so much fun to be had in the snow???)
My snow lanterns are the simplest kind. You can find instructions online but all you need to do is stick a candle in the snow and start to form snowballs in a circle around it. Gradually move them in closer
For the final step, light the candle and then put the final snowball on top.
My night picture doesn’t fully capture the enchanting effect of the snowy glow – but you get the idea. They’re magical!
5. I mentioned that we had only one day this week with that sticky kind of snow – so I made hay while the sun shone . . . um . . . you know what I mean 🙂 It was perfect for building snowfriends.
My new little snowgirl friend
and her snowkitty. Notice the tail?? I love it!
and don’t forget the whiskers.
Now that was snowfun!
Mila was especially intrigued.
Definitely a case of kitty love.
Thanks for coming to play in the snow with me this week! Hope you had fun!
