Snow Day

Well, we are finally getting a really good snowstorm!
Daddy came home from work at about 3:00 today (Government's orders!) and the snow really started coming down around 4:00. After dinner, he had convinced both girls--with great enthusiasm, I might add--to get bundled up and venture out into the wet snow with him to make a snowman!

I should explain that, though she was born in California, once she understood that the snow wouldn't hurt her--and once we got her bundled up and she actually experienced the FUN of playing in the snow, Elizabeth has always been fairly eager to get out in it! So getting her fired up about this snow adventure was no big deal for her!

However...not only does Ashley, our native Michigander, throw an absolute fit when she has to put on a jacket (which is pretty much EVERY DAY from November through February!), she has made it very clear that she is terrified of the snow. She doesn't want to hear about it, step on it, walk through it, touch it...or really even LOOK at it! "No snow! No snow!!!!"

So, the fact that Ashley was willingly (and even joyfully!) participating in the bundle-up process as Daddy talked up the fun of building a snowman--is HUGE!

Here they are...all decked out and ready to go!
So far, so good, right?
Well...maybe not so much!





Okay, okay...now before you go talking about how cruel we were to do that to her...please bear in mind that she was out there for the sum total of maybe 48 seconds!

And this picture was taken about 33 seconds after I let her back inside! So all is right with the world!
Maybe she'll have a change of heart, right?
Wrong.




Instead, she was more than content to let Daddy and Elizabeth brave the snow alone while we watched from our primo position inside, behind the glass door!

Daddy found that the consistency of the snow was ideal for snowman building!
I should add that, as Daddy placed the coal and sticks onto the snowman to create a face, Ashley kept shouting "Froggy, Mommy! I see Froggy!" LOL But once Daddy added the hat and scarf, the little guy definitely took on a distinctively SNOWMAN persona!
And here is Elizabeth, proudly posing with the snowman that she made with Daddy! Good times...good times!

Very cute! My kids all screamed and cried over snow when they were one and two. Somewhere around age three to four, they started to dig it.

This is a really wet, heavy snow though. Great for snowmen and packing but also great for power outages and snapped trees!

I remember when E's dad would say that he would "never leave Los Angeles" for snow or cold weather. But that was a lifetime ago ... and not when you have to do what you have to do for family (and job imperatives).

Sorry, didn't mean to sound creepy but I do know both of you. And as that was a lifetime ago, the comment was more for nostalgic purposes. :)

Feel free to delete (or moderate) if you prefer. Just sayin'...
