We received our first significant amount of snow overnight. Maggie could not wait to get her new snow pants on and go play, Layla as you can tell was not as excited. Most of the time she stayed in her carseat all cozy and warm I took her out just before going in the house to get some pictures. As you can tell I had great luck getting both girls to look at the camera without any tears.
Maggie loved the snow!!!! We made snow angels and she had a blast just falling in it over and over. It was not good for making a Snowman or Snowballs but she had fun just throwing it at me. As adults we view snow as an inconvenience and think how cold it is and horrible it is to drive. Then you watch a 2 year old play in it for the first time and forget all about the nuisances and remember how much fun it is.
Today was one of those days that I am so grateful to be home. After our playing in the snow we came in and had some Hot Chocolate (another 1st) with lots of Marshmallows of course. And we ended our day watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. This was one of those days that make all the hard days worth it.
If everyday was like today would we truly appreciate them!
Maggie looked so damn cute in her pink snowsuit. She does look like a pink marshmellow with rosie cheeks. I am so glad her first snow day was so memorable, I miss not sharing in those first….Poor little Layla, when she cries you so can see Maggie in her, I can’t believe how big they both look. Only a few more weeks till Santa and than Auntie Beth comes to see her girls. I can’t wait–hopefully we will get some snow….Love you guys
Looks like Maggie had fun. I just got out the toddler sled and plan to take Isabel sledding down the small hill in the front yard. Last year I only pulled her around a little bit. She didn’t cry, but she wasnt sure what was going on. I think this year she will love being pulled in the sled.
Looks like you guys had a lot of fun, I wish I could have been there! I miss being with you guys so much, I can’t wait to see you guys in February. I miss you so much!
Love you guys,
sqeezie weezies to all!
