Charlotte's first snow

She was really too little last year, and up until now we haven't been able to get her to wear her boots.  Today we MADE her put the boots and and took her outside.

She was NOT a fan.



New clothes are fun!



Hmm.  This is an awful LOT of new clothes at one time.  I'm not sure about this all of a sudden.



Oh, hey - outside!  I like outside!



What the hell is all this white crap?  I'm pretty sure I didn't approve it.



I'm pretty sure this stuff is bad for you, and I really don't want to walk in it...



It is NOT funny...



It BURNS, precious...



I can't believe I got out of there alive...

So, the first romp in the snow was less of a success than her snow-loving mommy might have liked.  But there's *years* left to indoctrinate her.  And given how she loves to bounce, I'm certain that she'll love to slide in the snow.  Once I convince her to walk in it...

That's a lot of snow for someone her size. Start her off with a manageable amount, not an avalanche!

But avalanches are the most fun!

She's a kid who has to size things up for a while before she can form an opinion. I figure we'll work on getting her used to it gradually - at least, if we can ever get boots on her again!

LOL! Oh, that's totally adorable. ^_^ Thanks, I needed a chuckle.

Frankly it IS a lot of snow & probably overwhelming. Once dad pulls her around on a sled & she learns to dig snow forts, she'll love it better.

Gosh she's cute. ^_^ She looks so like you.

Grandma is already planning the snow saucer for the hill in her back yard.

She gets overwhelmed by things outdoors. She hasn't yet explored my parents' back yard, because I think all that green is just more than she can process.

Next year she'll be more prepared to take it all in. Just watch - next year it won't snow at all!

I agree with the much too cute statement. It's dangerous and should not be allowed.

One zip down the driveway on somebody's lap and I think she'll be much more of a fan.

Mom actually worries about the cute. Over Christmas she asked me quite seriously if I keep an eye on her when we're out in public. I just enjoy it.

I have a nascent plan for a catch fence across the bottom of the driveway...

She is so flipping cute! I know she was distressed, but even THEN? Still. Kewt.

My little Michelin man... I know - even unhappy she's adorable. The scary part is that she's learning to *work* the cute.

I think if I suddenly found myself plunked up to my waist in something that kept me from moving my feet&legs I'd be a wee bit upset too. But I probably wouldn't be so cute fussing about it.

You could do what we used to do with my dog -- shovel a small patch down to three inches and let her cavort in that. (Well, cavort is not exactly what the dog did in the patch, but don't suggest that to C.)

Kids and snow -- they're fun.
