SNOW DAY

We are nearing the end of the Blizzard of 2010. It has been snowing for 24 hours in our neck of the woods. It certainly looked beautiful outside but was a lot of work digging ourselves out.

Tony had a snow day from work so we were able to hang out, catch up on some paperwork for our upcoming adoption, eat goodies, watch TV, keep warm by the fire, play with play doh and frolic in the snow for a little while.


Halainah hasn't really had the chance to play in the snow. Thank goodness I had her snowsuit from last year that Opa bought her right before we left for China. Even though it was a size 12 months, she still fit in it. We did not have appropriate snow boots or gloves so our adventures in snow land did not last very long.

When Halainah got up this morning she ran to the sliding glass doors, took a peak outside and said, "oh daddy, daddy. Oh daddy, snow, SNOW! Oh daddy." She just melts my heart.


So our adventures outside in the snow for the very first time started out very well. Halainah was very excited and she loved touching the snow.

She had a little bit of a rough time trying to walk in the snow as it was too deep and again we didn't have the right boots.

Sooooo....DOWN she went....face first.


She whimpered a bit as I think she was a little startled.


But she managed to get herself up.

And sort of just looked at me like....what just happened and why didn't you help me mommy?

She quickly got over her fall and decided to catch some yummy snow flakes on her tongue.

And smell the fresh winter air!

And this is what our winter wonderland looks like from the sliding glass doors where we were finally snug and warm inside our house.


It was a very nice family day...but I am ready for Spring now!

Ha. So cute. I have to admit, living here in Houston, I'm a little jealous. Had our house sold already we'd be your next door neighbors over in Maryland by now. But maybe I'm not quite ready for a freak snow storm, although it is VERY beautiful!

Please Please send the snow here- we want it and need it very badly! Looks like Halainah loved it.
