I've always hated snow. No, I guess that's not really true. I hate being cold - especially cold and wet. So, I only like snow when I can be inside toasty warm, watching lifetime movies and eating delicious (and healthy of course) snacks. When it snowed earlier this week Ethan started begging for someone to have a Snow Fight with him. Excuse after excuse, I got out of it and crushed his little dreams. So, today, I bucked up and brought him out while I shoveled this morning.
I now love snow. He just giggled and giggled and was totally mesmerized by the powdery white stuff - even when I threw a shovelful in his face by accident. We threw lots of snowballs and came back coated. Lucas was totally fascinated when we came back in - Ethan brought another snowball to watch melt. Of course now it's been snowing all morning and there is 10 times as much as there was earlier and no longer a clear driveway, but oh well - that was 106 extra calories I burned to be used on the cookies we're going to make!
