Snow Day!

We woke up to a winter wonderland this morning- for once the NC weathermen (or should I say weatherpeople? I can't think of any female weather people in our market though) were correct! It's rare for snow to cover the grass around here, much less the roads.

We couldn't miss the opportunity to take Maddie outside to see her first snow. She doesn't have any kind of snowsuit, so instead I dressed her in leggings, a long sleeved onesie, socks, footed fleece pajamas, fleece lined jeans, fleece jacket and a hat. She wasn't too pleased that getting dressed took so long- and she really wasn't happy when we took her out of the warm house and let snow fall on her face! Maddie isn't a fan of anything bright or cold- so we probably could've predicted her reaction to the snow. Here's a quick video of the first time we took her outside. And the two pictures we managed to take before she completely arched herself out of her Bumbo seat. Oh well, hopefully we'll have snow again in the next couple of years when she'll be able to play and enjoy it!

As for the rest of the family, Mike did have to go into work, and said the roads were actually a little worse than he was expecting. There was some definite sliding going on. The snow isn't supposed to melt until tomorrow, so we're hoping he'll get to come home a little early. Ginger loves the snow- she likes to eat it, and will stay outside all day if we let her, munching on her own personal all you can eat snow buffet. Mia had to be "convinced (pushed)" to go out in the snow, but once she got out there she decided that it didn't taste too bad, so they've had a fun morning frolicking and getting nice and wet and stinky. As for me, I'm staying inside, drinking hot chocolate and enjoying the pretty view from the window!
