Walking in a Winter Wonderland


December 20, 2009 by Marj Hatzell

Know what I love?  Snow. I love cold weather. I love skiing (though I’m a pretty rotten skier).  I love making snowmen. Heck, I even LIKE shoveling.  Bug Boy is like his Daddy, the longer they are out there, the better. Bugaboo?  Not so much.  The past six years he has avoided snow like the plague.  I mean, it’s COLD, y’all.  He screams, “UH-UH!” if we dress him in his snow pants and boots. Yesterday, Bug Boy was outside for an eternity plus a few hours.  And Bristol the Wonder Pup? Turns out she loves snow as much as Shad Roe, her big sister.

Yup, they were all outside goofing off and enjoying the snow.  And me? Stuck inside with the Bugaboo.

After we went to a lovely holiday gathering this afternoon, we headed home and chatted. I noticed some kids sledding in their hilly front yard.  That’s when the lightbulb went on above my head.  SLEDDING.   WE’RE GOING SLEDDING.  I mentioned it to the husband, he agreed, so home we went (to get decked out in snow gear).

Twenty minutes later, it was nearly dark and we were speeding down a hill a few minutes from our home. On sleds.  Bug Boy?  Shares his Dad’s daredevil enthusiasm.  He even got three feet of air at some points.  Bugaboo and I shared a two-kid sled and zipped down a few hundred times.  HE LOVED IT.  Then he discovered something:  If you leave your gloves ON and pick up the snow, you can STIM ON IT!  OMG!  WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT BEFORE?  And it’s everywhere!  HUZZAHHHHHH!!!!  I love snow!

It’s a Christmas Miracle.  Now we can enjoy snow as a family.  We are sooooooo going tubing.

yup.  She liked her first snow fall. Sorry, flash wasn’t cooperating.

Bug Boy’s descent.

Out of focus, but you get the general idea.

    Glad to hear that he is learning to like the snow but if he changes his mind I will trade you my two for him. They have been chomping at the bit to get out in that awful stuff, and this Mama don’t do snow. No way, no how! Temp trade?
