My favorite winter memory has to be the snow filled days at Lake Tahoe when the boys were young.

My favorite winter memory would have to be sledding with my brothers when I was a kid. We had a lot of fun doing that

Rita M said...

Winter is not my favorite season, just a little too cold for me (and I live in California!), but my favorite memory is taking my daughter to the Christmas Tree Farm to pick out a tree when she was just a small child. The crisp cold air, the smell of the trees & hot cider -- it was great!

tutugirl said...

A huge snow storm we had that quieted the whole town. My husband and I went walking down the middle of the street late at night just watching the huge snowflakes fall. It was beautiful.

Carrie said...

When I was growing up we had a huge backyard that sloped down perfect for sledding. We had every kid in the neighborhood over. We had a blizzard one year, the snow was so high we could jump off the back porch and land in a pile of snow three to four feet deep. The best part was coming in from the cold to get hot chocolate. I think that was my favorite part.

Jenn S. said...

My favorite winter memory is of our first night after moving to Virginia. It started snowing. We had been living in South Texas and hadn't seen snow. Playing in the snow was so much fun.

TABANGONING with the family at the forest preserves....snowdays where you couldn't open your door and no one cared to go out for days

Nadine said...

My favorite winter memory is the blizzard of 78. We lived on the 2nd floor of an apartment building and the snow drifts had gotten so high that the snow was just below our balcony. My Sister, Brother and I spent the afternoon jumping off the balcony into the snow piles. We were cold, soaked and having the best time of our life.

Dixie said...

My favorite winter memory was growing up in Ga.
We hardly ever had snow so even a dusting was a big deal.
We would grab anything that looked like it would slide and use it for a "sled"
Oh-and making snow ice cream too!
It's a wonder we never got sick from eating it.

coriwestphal said...

I remember one year when I was about 8 or 9 years old, we got the most snow we had seen in a long time. My dad plowed a huge pile in our yard. My brother and I spent about a week making the most elaborate snow fort you've ever seen! It had two rooms and even furniture! We could've been killed in a collapse but it really brought us together! Thanks for the great contest...it brought back a great memory!

jepnet said...

Every year, my husband, kids, and I head to the woods to chop down a Christmas tree. I retain the right to final approval, so, they each compete to be the superstar that uncovers the perfect tree. My favorite winter memories are of hearing my family shout "I found it!"

Deborah said...

We lived on a street that was on a slight incline; the boys on the street were a few years older than I was. They loved to race their sleds on the street - I was too young to join in the fun. Bless their hearts, they named me the snow queen and carved a throne for me out of the snow bank near the street. There I sat, queen of the day, watching the boys race for hours and feeling part of the fun.

patty said...

Sledding with my dad!

I took one of my sons to NJ and he saw snow for the first time. We live in FL so my kids don't get to enjoy how beautiful winter can be!

Brandy said...

Originally being from Michigan, as a child my favorite memory of winter was being out in the snow with my mom pulling me on a sled. Now living in the South, we rarely ever get snow, but I always think back to that time....

409cope said...

I really detest winter, but when I was little, I remember going to the nearby pond, to ice skate with my father.

buzzd said...

I grew up in Florida so we didn't get much snow. I remember the first year that it flurried and a little snow stuck to the ground. It was magical to me to stand in the snow and experience it for the first time.

sweetsue said...

My favorite winter memory is sledding on Mt. Hood and being so cold-then warming up with cocoa in front of a roaring fire at the beautiful Timberline Lodge in Oregon!

Heather said...

I would LOVE to win one of these! My fav. Winter memory would have to be Christmas. I can't really choose one, except the ones where my Dad was still alive. ;) There's nothing better than spending time with the ones we love!!!

Tina12312 said...

My favorite winter memory is of my husband and I taking our son sledding and watching how excited he was going down the hill with our dog following him and then watching as our dog pulled him back up the hill to get ready for another slide. Thank you for the contest and reminding me of these special memories.

Kelsey said...

My favorite and most cherished winter memory was a few years ago when my family traveled to Colorado during Christmas break. Aunts, uncles, cousins, and grandparents, all hit the slopes to make some awesome winter memories. That was the last time our whole family was together, and I value the memories made on that trip.

Elena said...

I love watching our city's little Christmas parade every winter. It's not very impressive but I love to see it. Thanks for the contest!

redron said...

The year that I gave birth to my daughter. We had to drive there during a snowstorm.

Deedles said...

My favorite winter memory is when I was a little girl. We had a huge snowstorm and my brother built an igloo out of the snow.We played inside it for hours pretending we were in Alaska.

clynsg said...

My favorite winter memories were of childhood in Minnesota, when our yard would fill with drifts that we could jump in, make forts, and even sled down sometimes. Now that I am grown, winter isn't so magical!

Drinking hot chcolate in front of the fire.

tarahsfoodreviews said...

When I was younger my parents took my sister and I outside and spent the day enjoying the snow instead of cursing it. We built a giant snowman (or at least it seemed giant at six years old) and then we built two snow forts and spent the afternoon pelting each other with snowballs.

My favorite one... the gingerbread man I tried to take a bite out of, that I made in kindergarten class! heehe!

Annie said...

We rarely get snow here in my little corner of Canada, but in 1996 we had a HUGE blizzard. No cars or buses could run, no businesses could open etc. But my three kids who were all small at the time had the time of their life! They were jumping off of the brick wall outside of our house into 4 feet of snow and the laughter and joy coming from them made us all so happy!

My husband who worked in an old age home, walked miles in to get to work as nobody was there to take care of the patients!

Thanks

Clearly remember walking with my whole family to midnight mass in the stark black darkness with huge white snowflakes softly floating down all around us. Then coming home afterwards to find that Santa had magically arrived while we were gone!

kazul said...

I grew up close to an ice skating rink and every winter my favorite thing was to have supper early and go to the rink while everyone else was home eating and I had the whole rink to myself.

my favorite memory was when my husband surprised me with a romantic weekend away at stow vermont (without the kids).
we cut our own christmas tree and took a midnight sleigh ride in the mountains with snow falling.

mommytokayla said...

One of my favorite winter memories is when my husband, daughter and I went sledding at the park one March break. We were excited to try out our new blow up tube. When we got to the hill we all climbed on for the first run down the hill. Well, we made it halfway before we heard a pop! It was so funny! Luckily it did not ruin the day. We had brought more sleds with us thankfully! But we will always think of that day when we go there sledding.

caseydeuce said...

My favorite winter memory is now my daughters first time really playing in the snow. The past few years she didnt really care, being little and all, but last winter when she was 3 she had a BLAST!!!

shalamaryta said...

I can't say favourite, but an unforgettable memory: I got out of school on the way home (about 2 hours way in normal weather), I was stuck on the way by bus in the middle of thick snow, and a few hous later I had to get out of the bus because it couldn't move any longer. Anyway I was at street then for hours nearly freezing and fainting. Fortunately my mother managed to come and save me at the end. So, I was able to go home after 9 hours!!

A neighborhood snow ball fight was amazing, followed by hot chocolate afterwards.

Tina said...

My favorite memory and best
memory took place in the Northern
area of Quebec. Winters are
cold with a lot of snow. I
went cross country skiing at night
time using a flashlight on my
French Tuque. WOW!!! The snow
was crisp, which made the skiis
go faster and what a challenge that night was!!!

Barbara said...

Okay, parents would be arrested for this today. But my favorite winter memory is the first snow. My father would tie an old car hood to the back of his truck and drive around the neighborhood picking up all the kids. We'd all sit on the hood while he towed us for a nice ride around town.

Carol said...

My favorite winter memory is drinking hot chocolate after a day of sledding with my two daughters.

Rosemary said...

1969, I had recently moved to Colorado and needed a job. I went to the Coors Company in Golden, and got hired. When I walked into the company it was a nice mild winter day before the snow started falling. When I left to go home with my happy news, the parking lot was a foot deep with soft fresh snow and huge snowflakes landing all over me. It was the beginning of a wonderful part of my life.

dvice said...

Walking in crunchy freshly fallens snow

dewdah5 said...

We grew up on a farm in Vermont.My favorite memories are of my brothers and I sliding the whole length of the meadow we stayed out there for hours.We also would make snowmen and snow forts...every kid should have the fun we did.Hmmm hot chocolate and Mom's homemade cake sure tasted good after.

Travelling to a ski resort in Colorado with my best friend. I remember it was just a sort of magical time to be alive. I felt so alive, young and cool and I had a really good friend to share it with. I look back often on that time, it always makes me feel warm and cozy. (even though it was really cold!) sehbastian421@yahoo.com

A few years ago when my kids were small, it snowed a LOT on Christmas Eve. That doesn't happen here very often, and it was magical. :-) Thanks!

Brooke Lorren said...

Last Christmas, my husband lost his job, so we made a last-minute trip to my parents to save on food and other expenses. We all had a wonderful time, and it snowed on Christmas!

latishajean said...

my favorite winter memory is last winter when I saw all the snow we got.It was my first winter in a cold state for over 10 years it was pretty!

Tracy said...

Being snowed in as a child, it was the worst storm in history, snow was measured in feet not inches! All the moms in the apartment complex where we lived allowed us all outside (supervised of course) we built tons of snowmen and snowwomen, had snowball fights, sled rides down the hill, we all got back inside that evening, cold and wet, but so very happy. Me and my friends from childhood still remember that wonderful day!

Our Winning Circle said...

I love winter! I guess my favorite was getting snowed in - in a cabin on a lake for a week :)

KARENWZHERE said...

My favorite winter memmory is sitting around a card table with my siblings and my Aunt teaching us how to make Christmas bows. We had all kinds of colored ribbons. After we made our bows we put glue on them and then went to town with the gold and sliver glitter bottle to make them shine. Then we let them dry so we could attach them to our wrapped presents in funny papers she had saved all year from the Sunday newspapers for us. Those were the days!!

Jessica said...

My favorite winter memory is when I was young making snowmen in the snow and coming inside to drink hot chocolate with little marshmallows.

zekebamm said...

My parents used to live in a house that had a huge picture window in the living room. I remember one Christmas morning when it began to show just after we had opened out Christmas gifts -- it was so beautiful.

RE said...

We used to make sleds out of old cardboard boxes! Thanks!

Aisling said...

Spending snow days with my kids and making angels in the snow, building snow men and snow forts, and sledding.

Maryea said...

I grew up in the mid-west and it got really cold and we had lots of snow. There would often be high drifts to the house roof. My favorite memories are being able to stay home. Because snow was not unusual we often went but on those days we got to stay home, it was wonderful! I and my neighborhood friends would build a snowman and throw snowballs.

rlr260 said...

I live in the Deep South, and snow is a rare and momentous event. When I was a kid, my parents bundled up my brother and me, and we went out in the snowy yard to explore. I think it is my earliest memory of snow. Anyway, my Dad tried to "ski" on a piece of plywood, and fell spectacularly, although he was not hurt. My brother and I thought it was the funniest thing and kept saying "do it again Daddy!" We still laugh about that day now.

Jessilyn82 said...

An impromptu snowball fight with my dad when I was 8 or 9, it's one of the few memories I have of him that's crystal clear

Rachel said...

Walking in the woods in the snow at night under a full moon with my parents when I was about 5 years old

marsh said...

The dads would shovel off the fallen snow down at the river in our backyards. All the kids and adults would skate and then afterwards we'd have hot chocolate.

jilshan98 said...

My favorite winter is making snow angels when I was a kid!

Vicki and Noel said...

Hands down, my favorite winter memory is my family on our 6-man tobagan at my Dad's farm. I can still see my grandmother (all 4 feet 10 inches of her) holding on for dear life!

Sarah Z said...

Building snowmen with my daughter - we don't get a lot of snow so when we do, we take advantage of it!

LINDALSHOT said...

We built a giant igloo that you could actually crawl thru and Mom freaked out worrying that it'd collapse with us in it.

tattwo said...

My favorite winter memory were snow days from school. It was always so much fun to play in the snow all day. Thanks for the giveaway.

Ginny said...

I could use this right now, freezing!

My favorite memory is all the snow we used to get in Michigan. We could have great snowball fights, build forts & snowmen. The snow doesn't seem as good anymore, LOL.

sarah said...

My favorite winter memory was when my sisters and I were kids, we were sledding on this very large hill in our neighborhood. We met some neighbor kids that we hadn't met before and spent the afternoon sledding together. It was so much fun. We capped the afternoon with hot chocolate back at our house.
I love that sherpa pullover in charcoal.

Vic said...

I grew up in texas so i never really experienced "winter" but in my early twenties, I moved to washington, dc. I vividly remember my first snowfall, the icicles hanging on the bare trees, the crunchy noise of walking on snow, and how everything seemed to glisten.

moocowsu said...

My favorite winter memory comes from my childhood. My father used to freeze our backyard with the hose to make a skating rink for my brother and I. When all the neighborhood kids were tucked inside their homes doing homework on a school night, my parents took us skating in the back yard. We always ended the night with a large mug of hot chocolate and all the marshmellows that mug could hold.

paula h said...

Mine is a few years back, the first time I got to play in the snow. Dh and I had just married and we went to visit his parents in MN. We made snowmen and he showed me how to make a perfect snowball. Then we went inside and his Mom fed us soup and grilled cheese sandwiches.

Candie said...

I enjoy when we are cooped up at home for a day or two. We go for walks in the snow and review the roads. I think my absolute favorite was when we tried to pull the sled with the lawnmower (did not work and alcohol was not involved)

Holly said...

Winter is my favorite time of year. I love the first snow of the year. I always make a snowman and take a picture. It hangs on my fridge all year long. It gets replaced with the firs snowman of the next year.

Rachael said...

I married a man with five children who had never seen snow. After our marriage the children came from Texas to live with us in Utah. The first time it snowed we bundled everyone up and headed up the canyon. We threw snow balls and built snowman. When we came home we had hot chocolate. It has been 14 years since then and the kids still talk every year about their first "SNOW".

Torie said...

Last year, my husband, 10 year old son and I went to Leavenworth, WA, in mid-December for the Christmas celebration. It was fantastic! Snow, lights everywhere, staying in a bungalow at a lodge close by, brilliant stars at night, crystaline air, singing carrols, hot chocolate, great food, and much more. It was magical and I would love to do it again.

Our family lived in Howe Tx when I was little, I remember one year when Daddy came in and woke my little sister and I up to see the snow - huge, fat, fluffy snowflakes - and about 2 feet of snow which had fallen over night. It was magical.

julied said...

I remember going to my Aunts house, all my cousins would be there and we would play out in the snow for hours. We would build huge snow forts and snow families. When we finally came inside we would have hot chocolate and cookies and play board games.

Mar said...

I hate winter. Too cold and icy for me. So my favorite memory was when we spent 1 month of winter in southern Florida. I can remember being outside in our tee shirts playing touch football on New Years day. Winters like that I could enjoy.

So many to choose from. However, my most recent favorite memory is from last winter. My daughter just turned one and I spent many hours outside pulling her around in her little red sled. If I slowed down at all she would start to kick her feet. It was amazing to see her go down the hill in our backyard with a huge grin on her face. I guess she is going be a real snow and speed lover when she grows up!

It was 1994, I had been dating a really nice guy for a while but we had not said those '3 little words' yet to each other. All the signs were there but those are not words to be taken lightly. Anyway, we were out on a day date, we went to a local ski resort to sled and just have fun. When the sun was starting to set we decided it was time to eat so off we went. I come around the corner and there in a clearing was a blanket with a basket, wine, the whole nine yards. I was speechless that he would get his friends to set this up for me. While eating we talked and cuddled. He then told me to look down the mountain and there in the snow it said "I love you (and my name)"...those 3 little words...not yet spoken out loud. So what does he do? He left me on the blanket, climbed to the top of the hill and shouted it out for all to hear "I love you (my name)".

Yes, yes, that is my fondest winter memory by far.

My favorite winter memory is digging tunnels through the snow and making snow caves in the front yard after the Blizzard of 1976.

I loved building snow forts with my sister and neighbors out of the big piles of snow at the end of the driveway from shoveling and the snow plow.

The best snow story I can remember is the blizzard of 78 I was stuck home with my two brothers my mom was stuck at work and we had a blast I would lock them out of the house and they didn't like it one bit

Shelly said...

My favorite winter memory was building a huge fort with my kids all day long. My kids thought I was the coolest mom in the neighborhood!

We went to NC, to Nana & Poppa's house for Christmas. The kids and I got there on Christmas Eve. My dad had bought a real tree before we got there, stuck it in the ground out back (they have a house on the side of a mountain, with a waterfall!) We went out in search for the perfect tree. It rarely snows there, but it started to snow as we went out (too perfect!)
The kids found the tree, my dad pretended to cut it down. It was so wonderful to be with them. I miss that time because a few years later, my dad who never drank or smoked, started coughing. The docs gave him 9-12 months to live, he suffered every day for 8 months. I miss him so much my heart hurts every single day.:(

Every winter, the first time it snowed in the evening, my dad would take my mom and I sledding down a hilly road near us before they plowed it.

I moved in with my husband (who was my fiance at the time) in November of 2004. It was the most romantic winter on record. Here we are in 2008 with a three-year-old, a two-year-old, and an eight-month-old, and we still feel the same way...sigh...

I'm a Southern Gal so visiting my daughter in Massachusetts for the first time and seeing tons of snow was memorial!

It was winter 2003 and the last my kids and I would have with my husband. It began to snow on our drive home from seeing holiday lights so I pulled over in a parking lot and we got out, twirled around, and caught snow flakes on our tongues...unforgettable.

My favorite winter memory is December 21, 1975. Outside it was cold and windy. Inside the house it was warm with wood burning heat and with excitement. My little brother was on his way. My parents had decided on a home birth and I was to experience it with them. However, the labor was taking too long for my five year old attention span. So our family friend, Phil and his son, Matthew and I went for a walk through the fields. I remember the cold air whipping through my hair and the sound of my father yelling for us to come quick. Josh was coming! What an amazing experience; to see my brother born on the first day of winter.

My father would take the day off whenever we had a snow day. He would help us build snowmen. When it was time to give the snowman accessories, Daddy would go inside to make us hot chocolate. My father passed away recently, and I will always have this memory to cherish.

My favorite winter memory were the days that my mother would drop a carload of my girlfriends and I off at Cobbs Hill Park which was very near where we lived. We would go up to the top of this huge hill where there was this lodge called the Tay House. My mom would leave us there for about 4 hours and we would sled down the huge hill next to Tay House all day long. We had these plastic sleds called mini-boggans and we could literally go down the hill lightening fast! On an average afternoon we must have sled down and walked back up that hill at least 50-60 times! We would then go into the Tay House lodge and have hot cocoa and cookies. Back in the late 80's when I was going there times were simpler, parents could leave their kids for an afternoon and we were free to be kids, carefree and happy go lucky. I miss those days and wish I could do the same things for my own 3 children now, but I would never, ever dare leave them alone at a park in this crazy world! Thank you for giving me the chance to remember this fond childhood memory! It was a lot of fun to share!

I remember deep snows in Illinois and my brothers and I would sled down the hill that we lived on and slide all the way over to a creek. I was 7 or 8 and we would sled all winter long.

My favorite memory is my mom and I sledding on garbage can lids. We don't get snow here very often but that year we had almost 18 inches. My mom loves snow and will call me in the middle of the night to tell me she saw a snowflake!!!
