Monday's Riddle blew in on a chilly breeze, and Lizzy's review of Breathing Room by Marsha Hayles took us out into the cold air of Minnesota. Friday, Margo will be chiming in with her two cents, and Saturday, we can't wait to hear from you on The DMS Wants to Know! Sunday, we have something special planned, so be sure to check back!
All four seasons are spectacular, but there is definitely something magical about wintertime. It's cold, and there are some hassles that blow in with the north wind- shoveling immediately comes to mind- BUT, there is also so much beauty and cheer that belong to the season's spirit. Today, we thought it would be fun to tell you about two fabulous winter wonderlands.
This week's top of the heap: Winter Wonderlands!
The Polar Express. How much fun would it be to hop on the train, grab a cup of hot chocolate with whip cream, speed away to see Santa, and then receive the first gift of Christmas. It's an excellent story, and a wonderful movie. The elves are really cool, and I love how the town is set up. So, yeah Santa! I'll be waiting for that train to stop by my house this year! ~ F
The Polar Express and its imagery of the North Pole. However, I also wanted to mention the amazingly creative ice hotels out there. I have never been to one, but they are so cool. Normally, I love to be warm. But, I would definitely like to visit a hotel like this and see it for myself. I think the pictures speak for themselves! Has anyone ever visited an ice hotel? ~ L
