Snow Day!

While we were leaving for our Christmas vacation away from our house, it was snowing. It was snowing pretty hard too. While we were away, my husband kept track of the snowfall and by time we got back about 20 inches had fallen! But it didn't stop. It snowed a little everyday for the next 4 days thereafter! It wasn't really a big deal though- the streets remained plowed and no businesses, schools, or workplaces closed for inclement weather.

My son received a cute sled for Christmas from his Aunt & Uncle. So I took advantage of the awesome Christmas gift and the never ending snowfall and we headed out for our first day of play in the snow :) And this ladies and gentlemen is why I love being a stay at home mom.

I suited him up in his brand new snowsuit- but not before putting 4 layers of clothes on underneath that... I didn't want my baby to get cold. The boots were a struggle. Normally he helps when putting on shoes of any kind- but not this time. One of his boots may or may not have been on all the way. Once we headed outside he spent a couple of minutes trying out his new gear. I think the boots were a little different for him.

I put him on the sled and pulled him up and down the block. The giggles were amazing! You would have thought he was on a world class ride at an amusement park. He would stick his arm or leg out and try to drag in through the snow right along with the sled. It was the cutest thing ever. After my back started hurting ( I really need to figure out a way to make the pull string longer) I let him go exploring. Touching, tasting, feeling, and being in the snow. It was like he met a new friend!

And because I don't think there will be a shortage of snow around these parts- I'm definitely looking forward to doing this again and again :)
