Hubby thinks I'm quite funny because I pull out my little happy dance whenever a few flakes start falling. He has had the experience of living through idyllic Michigan and Canadian winters, complete with sleigh rides, skating on frozen ponds, and shoveling snow off of roofs. I grew up grabbing the nearest piece of cardboard to use as a sled on the nearest hill. Which was covered in three inches of snow for the first time in two years. I think the only real sled I've ever seen was hanging on the wall at a Cracker Barrel...
Anyway, like I said, the snow has been very exciting. All the schools closed and Hubby stayed home from work. Also, the garbage truck decided to stay home instead of emptying our overflowing garbage can. But he redeemed himself today so all is forgiven.
Of course, we were all excited to take Little Man out in the snow this year! After taking 20 minutes to get him ready, we finally made it outside...
Only for him to decide that he hated his mittens, that it was cold, wet, and that he wanted to go back in. All within 10 minutes. He didn't last much longer when his daddy took him out again after his nap that afternoon. I don't blame him though. I was ready to go back in as soon as I walked out the door.
I love making these memories together!
It sounds like a ton of people have snow right now. Are you one of them? What are your favorite childhood memories of snow?
