Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...
















Adeline's picnic table is under the light colored umbrella.  Yeah, that's a lot of snow.







The first day, she lasted 5 min.  I was planning to put Camille down and then join her and Patrick outside.  She hated it.  To her credit, the wind was blowing, the snow was falling, and it was almost to her waist.  Not fun.  Today, she did much better.  I went out with her, and we made snowballs, sledded, played on her playset and swing, and mommy even made a snow angel.  I also attempted sledding down the deck stairs.  It was wicked fun, but a bit dangerous.





Sledding with a 2 yo is tough!  Especially when the snow is measured in feet instead of inches.  It takes SO long to get the snow packed down enough to make sledding fun.  Plus, every kid knows the worst part of sledding is walking back up the hill.  With a 2 yo, you need to carry them back up the hill or the whining will commence and the sledding will end.  This mommy doesn't need a gym membership.







That's all folks!

The pictures of your home during the snow storm are just beautiful!

And I'm with A on playing while it's snowing- I don't like it either. My daughter was disappointed I wouldn't come out and play with her :-( Sunday was much better though.

Keep some snow for Feb/March (it doesn't have to be 2 feet!) and I'll go sledding w/ Adeline! It's snowing here, but only inches, not feet. However, it's much different than 1 week ago when I was in the 70 degree Iraqi desert!

We're supposed to get a blizzard by Christmas morning. Fun stuff.

Love the picture at the end...that was our kitchen all weekend. The girls went out Saturday briefly, but that wind and blowing snow was bitter! Chris took them out yesterday and they had more fun then.
Cute camo pants. =)
