Our little snow day

The other day, we woke up to a thin layer of snow on the ground. We have been missing the snow around here. We haven't had a good snow since before Christmas so Sadie hasn't been able to wear her new snow pants or boots hardly at all. So I got her all dressed up in her pants and boots and took her out to play in the "snow". There was such a little bit that when we walked through it, it all stuck to our shoes so you could see the grass. sigh.


I was really glad that I brought her out to play before her nap because after her nap all the snow was completely melted. Sheesh. We did lots of walking, eating and exploring in the snow.

Here is Sadie showing off her gloves that are too big, but they do their job in keeping her little fingers warm. She spent a lot of time walking around and eating the snow...which was kinda gross because a lot of times, I saw pieces of grass and dirt going in her mouth along with the snow. But oh well...she liked it. Then we saw one of her favorite things:

The Mail truck! She loves that thing! Seriously, she can hear it outside and runs to the window everyday to watch our mail lady put our mail in the mailbox. It is really cute. So she was really excited to actually be outside when she came that day. She watched it drive down the street. Then we decided to go to the backyard to see if there were any deer. I wasn't expecting there to be any since it was around 11:30 and they are usually hanging around in the mornings or evenings. But...



Notice the 4 deer in the background! She was so excited and wanted to share the snow with them and give them hugs. But before she got the chance to get any closer, she heard another sound that she recognized coming from the front yard....so we ran out to see the...

Garbage truck! She loves to watch the garbage truck, but because it is so loud, I have to be right there or she gets scared. The garbage truck is the other vehicle that she loves. We got so lucky to be outside when both of them came.


Then we went back out to the backyard to look at the deer again, but I think the sound of the garbage truck scared them away because they were gone. Oh well, Sadie just busied herself eating some snow off of our broken fence.


Then she decided that it was time for the gloves to come off.

Then I decided that it was time to go in before her little fingers froze off.

It was such a fun time. I love watching her explore and have fun. She is such a cutie pie!
