Our winter wonderland
Making snow angels... kinda...
Mama bundled Audrey so tightly, she couldn't stand back up by herself!

Daddy introduces Audrey to his winter obsession
Helping Mama haul in the sled
We had to change Audrey's mittens half way through our winter adventures because they were wet and caked with snow, but she couldn't have cared less, and when it was time to go inside to thaw out, she literally dragged her feet the whole way in. She wanted to stay out in the snow all afternoon!
Unfortunately, the 23-degree temps with colder wind chills had veto power over an adventurous little girls' requests to "play in snow more?" We headed in to some spiced cider, homemade veggie soup, and grilled ham and cheese sandwiches.
The house is now peaceful and quiet, with everyone dried off, warmed up, and full, and a little girl sleeping peacefully in her Big Girl Bed with visions of snowflakes floating in her head. Happy snow day!
