It also meant an afternoon of shoveling.
My coat was left in the car yesterday - which meant I stole Grandpa's to shovel.
A. steadfastly refuses to wear a coat most of the time ("Mom! I'm fine in my hoodie!").
EJ happily dons snow pants, boots, jacket - if he gets to throw his entire body around in snow, he'll wear anything!
Uncle K. showed up to help shovel, as well - and then we went across the street to help one of the neighbors, too.
Net result = I was sweaty (despite having just ha a shower); A. was cold and cranky but wouldn't admit the reason; EJ was having a blast, but had boogie running down his chin.
And queue the family photo!
I'm not going to lie. I pretty much hate this photo of me. My hair is flat, sweaty, pushed to the side, and decidedly boyish. I'm wearing a too big men's coat. It doesn't match my [favorite] scarf. In fact, it doesn't match any of the three scarves I'm wearing. And I have no neck - as I'm wearing three scarves.
Out in the snow is one of those times that I love taking photos of the kids, even of the dog, but I never have any of me. But this year -
This year, there will be snowy photos!
