Video Clip of the Week - Snow!

Yesterday we had our first real snow of the season. We got about 2 inches here according to the weather folks. It was just enough to cover everything in white and really make it look like Christmas is coming. I was so excited to let the boys experience snow for the first time that I didn't let the fact that I only had two pair of mittens or that I was home alone stop me.

On with the Clip of the Week!

Yes, those were socks you saw on Jackson's hands. I figured they were a good substitute for mittens. Speaking of socks....

Yes, Jackson was out in the snow with one shoe on and one shoe off. I didn't even realize it until after came back inside and only had one shoe to take off him. It must not have bothered him too much because he threw a fit when I brought them back inside. Good thing we were only outside about 10 minutes!

On a semi-related note, I just have to share something with my fellow New Englanders... Warning, the following will probably disgust you! So the snow stopped around 4 or 5 yesterday afternoon. Like I said, we only got 2-3 inches. Know what we saw on the 10pm news last night? A list of schools that were going to be closed today! Yes, you read that right. We got 2 inches of snow and the schools decided it was best to close for the next day. Could you imagine if New England schools closed every time you had 2 inches of snow?

Very cute! They look like they enjoyed themselves.
Where in the world are you that schools are closed for that amount of snow?? We got 7.5 inches and THAT closed the schools.

Looks like they had fun! We only got about 1/2 inch here in CT followed by rain so no going outside. If they closed school for 2 inches of snow they would need to have school until Jul! LOL

So far you have had more snow than we have had on the coast of Maine. Looks like a storm coming though. I hope it snows there when we come.

So fun!
We got 10 inches yesterday. THAT closed school. 2 inches? Not so much.
I use socks for mittens exclusively for Emma. So much easier, cause I don't have to work her little thumbs into the mitten.
And that giggle at about 1:07 is so adorable!

Silly Helen!! Everyone knows you're supposed to use plastic bags when you go in the snow!!
