This has been the coldest, snowiest winter in all of our memories. During the first big snow we had, temperatures stayed warm enough that it was safe to play outside. However, the snows since then have been followed by multiple sub-zero degree days. Although Annabeth loves the snow, or "nose!" as she calls it, she does not like keeping covered thus it has not been safe to take her out to play in the very cold temperatures.
Another seven inches of snow came Tuesday night and then yesterday it stayed warm enough to play outside. I checked the temperatures and then had this conversation with Annabeth:
Me: "What do you want to do today?"
Annabeth: "Watch Mickey Mouse."
Me: "Would you like to play outside?"
Annabeth: "OUTSIDE?! NOSE!!!" Wild cheering!
So, we bundled up and enjoyed a morning out hiking our neighborhood as more, fluffy snow fell.
In front of our house.
Even in the snow she was posing with her accessories.
