The kids are so excited to have a white Christmas. Totally white. (Watch, it’ll rain hard and warm up big time tomorrow.) They are so looking forward to sliding at Grampie & Grammie’s place on Christmas day. But of course we don’t wait for that special day to take advantage of the cool weather. This mean mommy makes her kids go outside to play every afternoon. I don’t really have to tell the older 3 to go out but little #4 would prefer the warm indoors to a winter wonderland. I don’t blame him, I would too. But I’m following in my mothers footprints and sending them out. I now know why she wouldn’t let us come in for a long time when we were kids playing in the snow.
“Hey mom, I’m coming in now.”
“No you’re not.”
Out we go again to dig yet another tunnel in a snowbank.
Moms are smart. :)
Here are my 4 explorers today. We’ll try to forget about the part when they were all walking back to the house and #4 decides it would be more advantageous to sit down in the snow and scream, yell, and cry about not being able to catch up to the others. Loved that part. Loved it SO much.
