On the Sunday right before Christmas, we had quite the Ice Storm and then 5 inches of snow on top. They canceled church and we stayed inside where it was warm. But Patrick wanted to play outside - so we dug out the winter stuff to let him play. We used it as a day to introduce the snow to Payden who would point and say snow but due to his reaction last year.. we didn't want to push too strongly.
Here are some pics that I had on my phone.
Pic of Maddie - this is her shoveled place to potty - Here she was looking at me, telling me that she was done and could come in now. She HATES the snow!

On his knees in the snow.
Patrick stayed and played for a good 30 minutes. I think he was oblivious to the cold and we spent a good 10 minutes warming him up when he came inside. We definitely need to look for better gloves as the ones he has are much too small!
But it was sure fun!
