Wow! We have had quite the winter weather to start off the holiday season! We have been dumped on by snow (about 8inches??? Haven't measured) and cold temperatures (currently 12 degrees F! with a low of -2 tonight!). We've also had quite a bit of wind, making for blizzard conditions. Absolutely crazy for this time of year. Usually this is January weather. However, Miles loves seeing the snow. I'm a little bit glad that we have some this year, but hoping it's not as much as two years ago.
Since it's pretty dang cold and windy, I wasn't about to venture out with Miles to play. Especially since I no longer own snow boots, pants, or proper gloves. The snow is a fine powder, so not great for making snowmen or anything. Despite the cold temperatures, Miles wanted to go play in the snow. So, I suited him up in his "new" snow pants, winter coat, fleece (not warm enough) mittens, and boots that are 2 sizes too small (he needs some new ones whenever we make it out of the house!) and let him out on our back deck with his little shovel. He had a great time, for about 15min, until he was too cold to play anymore. Since coming in, he's had hot cocoa and been in the bathtub/shower for over an hour warming up!
I think the rest of the day may consist of watching a movie, taking a nap, and drinking more hot cocoa!
