Snow day.


It’s cold outside. Have you noticed?!?! Why is it that when we grow up, we lose the desire to go outside and play in the snow? Must be due to the fact that we are just smarter now, and aware that warmth inside is so much more comfortable…

Even though it’s against my better judgement and desire, I took Lilah out to play in the snow. Yup, I left a warm, rolling fireplace to go outside in the blistering wind and snow – crazy, huh? What made me do it? Knowing that my sissy-of-a-daughter wouldn’t last more than two minutes out there in it.

And, boy was I right. First, we spent about 20 minutes rounding up and layering on  our snow gear. Once outside, she jumped up and down on the deck for about 30 seconds. Which she thought was hilarious.

The next 30 seconds were spent trying to get down the stairs and into the yard. She didn’t move too fast with all her gear on.

She asked to go down her slide, but I persuaded her to go play in the snow. Still pretty happy and unaware of the cold. 30 seconds later…

She fell. Not so happy anymore: “Snow on my hands!!! Snow on my hands!!!”  She screamed, “their bleeding!!”

The last 30 seconds of our outing were spent climbing back to the house to get inside by that toasty fire!! Much better!

Hope you all had a wonderful holiday break and are staying warm!!
