After breakfast I had resigned that I would not get out of my pajamas all day. That sounded great at first, but after about 5 episodes of the Fresh Beat Band, some Happy Feet, the unveiling of the new VW Pasat, and watching Extract with my husband while my son took a nap I was starting to feel a little stir crazy. My husband had to go to work and I was racking my brain to figure out something that Owen and I could do to pass the time. Eventually I decided on the most obvious...to get all bundled up and go out and play in the snow. My son loved it! As soon as we got out there I realized how much of a typical mom I was being when I asked him every 5 minutes if his hands were cold and did he want to go in. Of course he answered with a definitive "NO" every time. The snow was too powdery to build a snow man, but we had fun digging around in the snow with all of his beach toys....shovels, hoes, sifters, and buckets all work just as well with snow as they do with sand at the beach!
At this point I was telling him it was time to go in and he was ignoring me
Great shot of how deep the snow was
Joni couldn't figure out what to do

I love the snow! I am hoping it sticks around awhile. Like I said, here in Southern Tennessee we do not get many big snows like this one, but this is already the second one of the winter. I hope it is not the last!
