Well our first snow (enough to play in) of the year occurred in the same week of my first photo assignment for an informal class I'm taking. This provided the perfect opportunity to take tons of photos -- something I would have done anyway, but perhaps with a little more purpose this week.
Everett was so excited to go play in the snow. They both seemed to enjoy getting all bundled up, but poor Paxton couldn't really stand up easily once he fell or sat down. He also doesn't really fit into his mittens, so got really frustrated with not being able to use his hands. He'd work the gloves off, and then cry after touching the snow because his hands were cold. Can't win that one! We did a little sledding, a little snowball throwing (I'm so mad the action shot I got is blurry - they're quick those kids!), and Pax did a lot of snow eating. Everett said he doesn't want to eat the snow because it's not food. Haha! We didn't get to make a snowman yet as the snow wasn't wet enough to pack the two times we went out. We'll have to wait for the next snow now because the forecast is taking us into some warmer weather this week. The weather fluctuations have been wonderful so far. You really can't get sick of anything right now. I expect to be back in short sleeves later this week.
Here are some of my favorite photos. I had to include the action snowball shot even though it's not focused quite right. I'll try for another of those next time. ;) And the last one shows Pax's frustration at not being able to use his hands with gloves and being too cold without them. I didn't notice until just now that his middle finger is up too, which makes the shot just all the more hilarious. :)
