A Foot Of Snow
Who knew that when we would wake up yesterday morning we would see all this snow?
We woke up to about 8" of it! Schools were cancelled and we sat in the playroom watching another 4" fall before lunch.
The girls were of course dying to go play in all the glorious white stuff.
The backyard was covered, top to bottom.
Livi made sure she was styled appropriately. There would be no shade of pink under represented.
Why is it that people under the age of about 12 years old do not seem to feel the immense cold that is associated with rolling around in a foot of snow while the air temperature hovers around 14 degrees?
They cold have played all day and all I could muster was that my ankles were wet and freezing! I only lasted 45 minutes.
I think Liv is pondering how long it will take before hypothermia will settle in under those snowy mitts. Chloe tore through the backyard as if she hadn't been out of the crate in 3 months. I honestly don't know whether she realized her face was covered until it melted off on my couch.
