  82. wisconsin gal

    My favorite winter activity is snuggling with my kids. We have had a fireplace for years, and never really appreciated it. Now, cold in Wisconsin, we are using it more. I’m convinced every year I’ll find some outdoor skiing/sledding/snowmobiling activity that makes us all want to be outdoors, but it can be so cold. It’s not so much of the cold that I cannot handle, it’s the bitter wind that bites!

    Did you ever find matching pj’s for your family? I think you had mentioned it a while back. I was inspired and just did an old navy purchase, everyone is getting a fresh pj for this holiday! The pictures will be so cute. I even got a set for the grandma and grandpa who are coming to visit for the holiday. Fun right?! My kind of activity.

    1. Jennifer

      I got Hanna Andersson ones last (?) year. I think that’s the last time I was looking! I do love fresh pjs for the holidays!

    My favorite winter activity is driving around to look at Christmas/holiday lights and then going home for a nice, warm mug of hot cocoa! Despite growing up in Michigan I never was a fan of winter.

  88. Glenna

    My favorite winter activity is snowshoeing, but lately I have also enjoyed driving around the block in the evenings after picking my son up from daycare to look at the Christmas lights in the neighborhood. He just yells “Light! Light!” and “Wow!” it is amazing 🙂
