I can't believe I have a kid that doesn't like snow. I really can't believe it is the daughter who carries my mom's name as her middle name since my Mom LOVES snow! Regardless, mom and I are hoping we can teach her to love it as much as we do. I started by teaching the first step in enjoying snow...eating it of course! :)
We (translation: I, Marie) built a snowman. Ava insisted on being held while we were out there until I finally showed her that she was just standing on grass left by the path of the snow rolling for the snowman. She tolerated this, but I didn't dare go further than 5 feet from her "safety" zone of grass or she had a melt down. Jeff and Anna and Alexis found the perfect stick arms and a corn cob leftover from the squirrels.
All three seemed to like eating their popsicles and we got a cute pic of Jeff and the girls. Of course when we go to take a pic of me with the girls (which rarely, if ever happens) the neighbors down the way had already made their way towards us and ended up distracting the girls so none of them ended up looking at the camera. Yea, that made me *real* happy. :)
Here's Jeff and the girls and the neighbors before the girls saw them.
Anna and her just-too-cute blond curls!
Ava surprisingly not crying, but instead distracted by a snow popsicle.
And cute Miss Alexis with her wispy hair.
