Here are some pictures I took of the young man on our snowday. When I showed him the snow out the window that morning he kept saying "towman!" This was his first "real" experience being out in the snow. It took what seemed like upwards of 20 minutes to get the garb on. We soon discovered that there was just no way to get his thumbs where they are supposed to go in the mittens and that if he fell down he was unable to get himself back up again (just like the kid in Christmas Story...)My mom got him these adorable ski pants and boots (which he looooves and wears around the house) and mittens for Christmas, so he was all set. Once the ensemble was complete we waddled out the door...he mostly prefered to just walk around in it and, despite not having opposable thumbs, he really enjoyed himself. He did do a little sledding (another gift from my mom - thank you Memaw!), but had to be "coerced" - all the while we told him it was REALLY fun and that he would like it, we PROMISE!! So, he let Brian pull him around for a bit. We didn't stay out too long because it was sooo cold, but Brett really hasn't gotten to play outside a lot lately because of the weather and it was really nice to get outside for a bit in the fresh air. Brett was not as ready to come inside as we were.
