Winter Wonder

After an extremely mild November and December that yielded a total of 3cm of snow over the two months, January finally brought some real snow (though the forecast calls for rain today so we might not have the snow much longer...). I've been anxious to take Daija out in the snow, thinking she would love it.

So one afternoon that Nolana and I were both home we bundled her up and took her out to the small 'parkette' behind our house. She wasn't so sure about being bundled up and put in the sled but as soon as I started pulling her, her eyes lit up and she loved it!




I actually kind of like the snow. It's been a long time since I've had any real snow in winter and it reminds me of all those winters growing up on the Prairies and the tons of snow we had.

She's adorable!

I find having kids makes all the season fun again. Usually a pretty strong despiser of winter, I love taking the girls on sled rides and making snow angels in the yard.

Glad you got some snow to share with your little one!

The snow is gone again and now it's just brown and cold. I wish the snow was back so at least it looks nice.
