brrrr! it's officially winter. at least by my standards. we've had our first snowfall and by that i mean that the snow actually stayed on the ground. mia loved it! she could barely wait to go out in the snow. she went out without socks (just in her shoes) promptly did a u-turn and came back in for her boots. mind you this was my suggestion to begin with but being a mom means letting them learn for themselves that snow is cold on your feet (and it's a way better teacher then me talking my head off). we had to run a few errands and then we were set to play in the snow. on went the snow pants and off she went. asher on the other hand has decided he does not like being cold. he wanted nothing to do with this. now, this gets interesting. i now have a 2 1/2 year old who wants to do nothing but play in the snow and a 1 year old who wants nothing to do with it. can't leave either one of them alone, can't be in two places at once, can't get them to agree on a location. unfortunately for mia the freezing little brother won out and we had to cut our play time short. she was, however, very proud of the path she had made through the snow and immediately showed her daddy when he got home from work (with a slight assist from mom to explain what exactly he was looking at out the window).
