The Perfect Snow

We had the most perfect snow this morning, all soft and thick and fluffy—the kind that makes the most wonderful snowmen and snow forts and snowballs. And since it was Grandma Day, I decided it was the perfect time to introduce the grandkids to snow.

The boys—ages 1 1/2 and 1—have never really been in the snow and didn't have snow gear. Wal-Mart solved that problem really quick. I called my daughter-in-law to invite my 3-year-old granddaughter over to play, but they weren't home.

Around 1:00 p.m., I bundled the boys up in their new snow suits and mittens and boots and took them out for a lovely time in the snow. Here are some photos showing how much they loved it!

Baby Burrito

We lasted all of two minutes outside.

But that's okay. Winter has just started and I'm determined.

Later on I received this via text message.
Little Princess

What a difference time makes!

What adorable grandkids you have! And I don't blame the boys for not liking the snow. I think I'd prefer to sit inside sipping hot chocolate with a good book. :)

I have to go out in a few minutes and those first two pictures pretty much describe how I feel about it. Just wait until they decide they love it and you get them bundled all up to find someone needs to use the bathroom. :)

Lol, I think we need to keep the pics for blackmail when Baby Shrek and Burrito grow up.

LOL daddy shrek- good idea.

And I agree with the boys. I had to be out in it at the school and was not happy one little bit. But it was a pretty Christmas snow. Too bad it isn't sticking around. Until the 26th- after that it can go away.

You know what? I bet Baby Shrek and Baby Burrito are crying because they realized that in just a few short years, they'll be the ones shoveling the stuff! :)

Oh, before I forget ... (I have this way of forgetting lots of things anymore), thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting on That Wonderful Time of Year. Glad you enjoyed it!
