Winter. I feel like you either love it or hate it.

As adults we often complain about the snow, the cold weather, and did I mention the snow?

We do know from experience, that when you are a kid, snow is one of the most amazing things you lay your eyes on.

There is the excitement of playing in it, sled riding, building a snowman, and getting to stay home from school for a day. Honestly, just watching it fall from the sky can be mesmerizing.
