SNOW!

Yesterday it was a bit chilly outside, but that didn't stop us from having fun with the snow! I just put some in a little tub and brought it into the kitchen. Add some sand toys and off they went. Ella wasn't so sure about it at first, but after Aidan left it, she sat down next to the tub and starting playing with it.

Today on the other hand was much nicer, so while Ella took her morning nap, Aidan and I headed outside to play in the snow. We made Frosty #1 in the front yard:

And Frosty #2 in the backyard:

The snow was much better in the backyard, I am guessing because the sun had melted it just enough to be easy to compact. Aidan chose the sticks for the arms and the rocks for the eyes, nose and mouth. I went and got a carrot for his nose and a scarf and hat of course. It was really fun playing with him outside today.
