Winter in Colorado Springs is a bit colder than Castle Rock was. But, despite the days where dealing with snow gets old (mostly just driving) it still feels about a million times better than desert living, to me!
I gave the kids a bunch of dishes to play with the snow in the backyard and on the back deck with. They’d filled a bowl with snow a few days before this day. The day after filling the bowl with snow the snow had all melted. This meant the bowl was now filled with water. The very next day it snowed (and froze) again and the water in the bowl turned to ice. The kids were really excited by the transformation their snow had gone through!
Everett had crawled over to the back door and looked so pitifully sad left inside while I went out to snap a few pictures. I brought him outside to see his siblings for just a minute. I really should’ve bought him a snowsuit this year. I couldn’t find one that fit well so just gave up. Oh well. Next winter I’ll get this kid some great snow clothes so he can have lots of snow fun!
He had zero interest in posing for the camera but he was SO excited to be out there. He was squealing and giggling. By the time I took these just before taking him back in he was busy tasting the cold air. Or something, I don’t know- he was sticking his tongue out outside and stopped doing it when we went back inside!
Then it was nap time for my baby boy. Ember broke my old nursing necklace so I finally ordered two new ones from Amazon. They came in the mail that day and not a second too soon! Everett scratches and claws and cuts the crap out of my chest and face while he drinks. He doesn’t when I wear nursing necklaces thank goodness!
