that darn hat
warming up with a movie
almost 5-year-old jenna loves the snow! it was fun to see how delighted she was playing in it. i never liked the snow as a child (or as an adult either!). it was too much work getting ready for one thing. back when i was a child (in the olden days) we had to wear many layers to keep warm. we didn't have all the snow repelling fabrics kids have now. and our boots were always hard to get on. we placed bread sacks on our triple-socked feet before pushing them into the boots. it made it easier to get the boots on and off. our sledding place back then was an abandoned gravel pit way back across a big field behind our house. it seemed to take eons to walk back there, especially since you had to walk like a mummy with all the heavy clothing. i was usually cold by the time i sled down the hill a couple of times and would head back to the house. inevitably i was in tears by the time i was able to shed all the layers. not my idea of fun.
these days i do enjoy getting out in the snow to take photos but sledding, not so much.
my apologies to my daughter megan for letting jenna taste the snow. as soon as i had the photo i told her to stop. seriously, i did!
