There is clearly a time and place for cold weather and snow. And according to these girls…the snow should only be around for a very short period of time and far away from our everyday life.
Em didn’t seem to mind the snow too much and I think really loved our sledding trip with the cousins.
But Addie, she is not a fan of the white stuff. I managed to keep a jacket, hat and mittens on her about 50% of the time, but it was torture, pure torture I tell you! It was as if the mittens were scalding the very skin off of her hands.
My sis (or bro-in-law, I’m not sure which) managed to get a picture of me *loving* the chilly weather for about 2 minutes. I think maybe my blood has thinned a bit in the past three fair-weathered years we’ve been in So Cal.
The first thing Emma said Tuesday morning as I was getting her ready for school? “Mama, I’m so glad to wear my tennis shoes, I don’t like wearing boots all the time!”
And Addie squealed, “Mama! I get to wear a dress now ‘cuz it isn’t snowy! Right?”
You can take the girl out of California, but you can’t take the California out of the girl!
