As soon as the snow began to fall, all four children were scrurrying about the house ripping off tags of never used mittens, hats and boots. And of course mommy had to assist all four lovely children with their attire ;) After a good 40 minutes, all children were ready for the snow (well the baby and boy #1 wanted nothing to do with mittens or hats but after 30 minutes I was done with that battle). Now it was time to go out but wait, mommy needed the camera (how else would the blog world believe she had snow?!). After standing by the door, mommy grabbed the camera, video camera and extra hats. Finally after 70 minutes of the first sighting of snow, we were ready. The initial reaction on the snow was complete and utter joy:
Exactly four minutes later:
And then for the next three hours, mommy was busy warming blankets in the dryer, making a fire, making homemade cocoa and snuggling with some very cold babies.
And so for the blizzard we spent 70 minutes dressing, 3 hours warming up and a total of FOUR MINUTES in the snow.
Thank goodness I live in Texas:)
