Snow Day

We finally got some snow here in Holly Springs! Ellie had already seen snow at Nana and Papa's house, and she did somewhat fine. Of course they had a sled to entertain her for the few minutes every lasted outside, no one had snow gear on so it only lasted about 10 minutes. We thought she would like the snow if we got all geared up and mommy and daddy were playing with her, well that wasn't the case. Here is how it went:

Geared up, without a fuss, somewhat excited to get out in the snow:
Went outside with daddy and Kayla, fell down as soon as she stepped foot on the snow, and hated it:
Came inside, I warmed up her hands, then back out to get a shot of Ainsley with the snow:
Ellie would not step off the porch, so we decided to go inside and eat lunch, watch a movie, then take a nap. After Ellie woke up from her nap, she kept asking to go outside in the snow. We decided to try it again. Geared everyone up (except Ainsley), then out we went. Once again, she refused to go off the porch, so we decided to carry her and get a few shots of her happy:

I forced her to walk in the snow, she would only holding on to both my hands. Then I forced her to do it walking holding on to only one hand, she did it with lots of fussing:
After this she had a melt down, we decided we were done for the day. Poor daddy, he loves the snow. However, the snow definitely wasn't very "playable". We couldn't make snowballs or build a snowman. It was good to sled on, just need a sled...

Hope you had fun in the snow :)

Carson also had a major snow meltdown this morning, so we stayed inside the rest of the day. Maybe next year!

Sweet sweet pictures!! It seems like Bryleigh may be a lot like her....she was very hesitant too but didn't want to miss out on the outside fun! ;)

I laughed when you said you couldn't make a snowman or snowballs because here in central Texas ANY snow we get we will make a snowman or snowballs!!!! even if it's only 1/2 an inch of snow! :-)
