A Georgia Snow Day (in pictures)
"Mama, it's snowing!"
But not enough to make a snow ball. It's only sticking to her hair, not the ground.
"Look, now the ground is getting white."
Now THAT's enough for a snowball!
Daddy was home between shifts long enough to remember how cold snow can be on bare hands. . .
. . . and to take one picture of Mama smiling in snow.
First with bare hands.
Then with gloves and rubber boots.
I didn't have a scarf and I wanted to keep his neck warm. This didn't work.
So I went with the layers. Which still didn't really work. Poor kid.
But his sister managed to build a snow family which she placed carefully in the carport before coming inside.
She lasted 45 minutes, which was roughly 40 minutes longer than I wanted to be in the snow ( 🙂 ) She came in quite happily, but as soon as I closed the door and she peeled her soaked through gloves from her bright red fingers, she looked up at me and said, “Mama? I SO CO-O-O-O-O-O-O-O-LD.”
She had a warm bath and soy cocoa (thanks for the suggestion Sherri.) and all in all the snow day was a toddler sized hit.
