There's a hole in my bucket - Our Winter Bucket List

Last year winter was pretty warm.  This means it was cold enough out that we spent a lot of time indoors, but warm enough that we never managed to make it out sledding.  Like many things in life we find that if we don't write things down, fail to put them in our calendar and plan for them they never happen.

SAD tends to visit our family most years, so getting out and staying active is a must!  After our first snow storm this year, and the building of our first snowman we all sat down and built our holiday and winter bucket list.

Feel free to steal ideas from our list, and if you have any must see / must do suggestions please let us know so we can keep adding to our own list.

Molly named our first snowman of the year Miss Tenderheart
