Remember when we were little and loved the snow? When we were so excited to go make snow angels, snowmen, have snowball fights, go skiing, snowboarding or sledding? And now it snows and all I can think about is how much longer I'm going to have to enter my car through the passenger door because the driver's side door is frozen shut. And how snowboarding is too expensive, and even if I went, I'd probably break something.
More reasons I no longer like winter:
I don't like shoveling the sidewalks.
I don't like freezing my butt off.
I don't like having my car door frozen shut.
I don't like that there are no blooming flowers.
I don't like the stupid Utah inversion.
and I don't like the fact that it gets dark at 6:00 pm.
However, my wonderful daughter was SO excited when it snowed the other day- we probably had over a foot in our yard. I figured that we better put her snowbib to use, since it has just been hanging in her closet for 4 months (from the day we bought it).
We made a snowman. (That's our little dog, Harley, in the background. She barked at the birds for a while, then tried to eat our snowman.)
This was NOT good snowman snow. It was too powder-y. It took us a lot longer than I remember it taking when I was younger...
I have no clue how kids don't seem to notice that their hands are totally frozen while they're playing in the snow. I was tempted to just bag it at this point and go inside since I was so cold.
She was so proud. Of course all she really did was take some snow and sprinkle it on the snowman I was making.
The masterpiece: (she named him Frosty. Not my first choice, but whatever)
I know, he needs a carrot. We were all out of them and of course our boy neighbors don't eat healthy enough to keep carrots around the house for us to borrow.
I DO like playing with my daughter in the snow. :)
