Growing up near Savannah, Georgia my experience with snow involved snow flurries and a ski trip to the mountains. I had no idea that one day I would live in Minnesota! Our past five winters have been a learning experience. I've learned to buy down jackets and Marmot waterproof gloves for the kids. The pantry must always be stocked with hot chocolate, and a shoe rack to organize all our gloves and hats.

Do you have any good snow memories? Snow-related gift ideas? Our kids were so excited to stomp on snow this morning before preschool!
