It’s that time of year again when the beautiful colors of fall lead to the onset of winter, fires in the fireplace, candles, molasses cookies and the magic of winter wonderlands.  Depending on where one lives, winter can either be mild with the occasional peaceful blanket of snow or it can bring about the realities of a harsh blizzard.  Sometimes staying home and being cooped up for the long winter months can grow old quickly and everyone in the family gets a bit restless.

This winter, why not break away from the beach routine and head for the ski slopes, or the ice rink, or a snug mountain cabin where the family can cozy up in front of the fire place with mugs of hot chocolate and marshmallows?
