This morning we woke up to about 8 inches of snow on the ground. The schools in the area were closed, making a long Thanksgiving break even longer! I spent about an hour contemplating whether I should attempt to bundle Rainah up to let her play outside. I finally decided I definately had to. I got her bundled up pretty quickly, until we got to the mittens. We eventually got them on, but for sure not correctly. They didn't stay on long anyway. It took her a few minutes to adjust to all of the layers, puffiness, and boots, and stumbled around the house while I got my coat on. After a few steps outside she got the hang of it. She cracked up watching Cheyenne run around and eat the snow...so of course she had to try it, too. It must have been delicious because she ate a lot of it.
I pulled out the sled and took her for a ride up and down the driveway and she loved it. We didn't stay out too long since she was mitten-less and it was lunch time, but it was so cute watching her and getting some photos.
It was quite a feat just getting to the driveway
And that's about how long the mittens lasted
This is pretty much what she did the entire time... eat the snow
Even on her sled ride, she'd hang out the side and scoop up some eats
