Ellia's First Snow Day

It has snowed here a little bit already this winter but either it wasn't really enough to play in, Ellie was sick or both, so yesterday was really her first snow day ever.  

We had a pretty slow start to our morning.  I usually don't go back to bed with Ellie when she takes her morning nap, but when she was down for her first one before 7 am, I decided to crawl in bed with her to cuddle... and was asleep within three seconds of my head hitting the pillow.  After a glorious hour and a half nap together (!!) and a pig pile wake-up call, we were ready to really start our day.

We had snowflake(ish) blueberry waffles for breakfast (this cookie cutter kind of blows), and got ready to head outside.  Ellie totally reminded me of Randy on A Christmas Story all bundled up, and was equally displeased by her snowsuit and inability to move.  We stayed outside for maybe fifteen minutes before she decided she was completely all set - there were a lot of "mumma"s and a couple tears shed that I thought might freeze to her face, so we headed back inside.

Although I'm sure she wanted to come inside so badly because of her attire and not because of the snow itself (girlfriend usually loves to be outdoors), we decided to spend the rest of the day having a "we wish it were summer" party for two.  First up, a pool party in the tub complete with a beach ball, sunglasses and Jake Owen's "Beachin'".  I dressed Ells in her "summer vibes" tee that surprisingly still fit her, we ate ice cream for our afternoon snack, and finished off our day together with a hot pink pedi. 

 While there wasn't a whole lot of playing in the snow, I'd say it was a pretty successful first snow day and had a lot of fun with my girl, E. Summer. ;)

And when we get together
The summer never ends."
