Our little miss turned 20 months on Friday, the day that our first winter blizzard arrived. We quickly learned that cold weather and snow are not on Grey's favorite things list. Yay for something she gets from ME! :)
We bundled up bright and early this morning and drove (don't knock it…it was -2 degrees out with windchill) the 1/4 mile to our neighborhood park, with real camera in tow. We had Grey all dressed up and even curled her hair. I just knew we would capture precious snowy day photos of her running and playing in the beautiful white wonderland.
We should have been clued-in to how it would go when she screamed bloody murder to just put her big jacket on. And forget gloves or a hood. By the time the wet cold stuff touched her boots she lost it. I mean. LOST IT.
So we drove back home and decided to slowly introduce the snow to her. We let her stare out the doors and windows for a few hours, and attempted to get her to touch it (which she would never do willingly). Finally I donned a hat and she wanted to do the same. Daddy decided we could try to build a snowman in our front yard. She still didn't want anything to do with the snow, and begged to be let into daddy's pick-up to watch Daddy work, but at least we got her exposed. Maybe next year?
Cold weather IS for the birds, honey. I agree.
YAY for daddy's "warm" truck!
She knew she was tricked into the hat thing as soon as we stepped outside. ;)
Sweet girl was okay as long as we wouldn't make her step in the snow.
A couple weekends ago we had a friend photographer take a couple photos for us to use for a Christmas card. We have been having such a crazy fall/winter, I think we may just do a New Year's card this year. Grey was not in a photo taking mood, so photos were a bit tough that morning. Kendra was quite a rockstar for even getting a couple out of our mini-shoot.
