|Our front yard - February 2010|
We were okay though - Jason told all our neighbors that all he needed was a bucket of hot water and a flashlight and he could deliver the baby himself...and maybe some duct tape.
Anyway, on Saturday morning we were sleeping soundly in our bed when we heard a thunderous roar coming our way. It was high-pitched mixed with the sound of stomping. Jason and I opened our eyes and looked over to see a blurry image of our son frantically jumping up and down and screaming something unintelligible.
It took at least 5 tries for us to decipher the gobbledy-gook coming out of his mouth. We finally figured out that he was screaming, "MOM DAD NOWING! NOWING OUTSIDE! NO! NO!" I translated for Jason and our heart rates traveled down to a somewhat normal range.
I still can't get over how excited he was for the snow. It makes me feel silly looking back on when he was a little guy and we tried to show him the snow and get him all revved up.
He was just too little to truly appreciate the excitement of snow. Apparently, at 3 1/2, he is now old enough to get super pumped for snow all on his own without hovering parents :)
So this time around, we didn't worry about getting Elena all excited for the snow. We just let her show us her "funny faces" while I took photos :)
Leo was screaming something about going out to play in the snow. It was 7:30 in the morning and we ALL know that wasn't happening.
But after a couple cups of coffee and scrounging for some "snow clothes" in October, we were able to get outside for a few minutes.
|This photo might need an explanation - Elena fell on her butt in the wet snow so she proceeded to do the "Butt Dance" - a staple move in our house|
And of course the obligatory Hot Chocolate shot :)
And since Kat requested - here is the video of the Butt Dance!!
