Alright, so I did manage to bundle Xander up yesterday so he could experience snow for the first time this year. Let’s just say his snowpants were 12M, his boots a bit too big and his gloves weren’t waterproof. He cried and didn’t want to go outside. Neither did I. But I forced him and he loved it until his boots filled with snow and his face was beet red (about 4 minutes after we ventured into the nearly 0 F temperatures –factoring in wind chill). However, he did enjoy those 4 minutes. He thought it was a blast throwing snowballs up into the air 🙂 And I had fun snapping his photo with my new ‘nifty-fifty’ lens.
On another note, my little bro is in Thailand! He flew out the other day and will spend the next 6 months (or more) becoming a scuba god. He’s writing about his experience, so I recommend you head over to his neck of the Internet woods. His blog is located at www.thescubaintern.com.
We got a couple inches of snow last night! Unfortunately, it’s 9 degrees outside! So it looks like Kali will be the only one enjoying the white stuff today! Tonight the wind chill here is expected to dip in the -20s!! Gosh, I thought this was Missouri, not New Hampshire! PS: I took this photo from inside while Kali was outside… hehe, I won’t bare the elements for the sake of a photo!
We didn’t get 5 inches of snow but we got a couple here in Saint Louis (and it’s still coming down). Yea for the winter’s first significant snow fall!! Xander was very excited when I lifted the shade first thing this morning and revealed the white blanket on our front yard. SNOW! Unfortunately, it is very, very chillly outside (approximately 15 degrees) so we couldn’t play outside for long. Xander’s cheeks turned red and his nose began to run… a signal it was time to go inside. Daddy’s coming home early today so he and Xander can go sleding. Here’s a photographic summary of our morning (I think I’m getting the hang of the new camera):
