Here in Southwest Virginia, we don’t get a lot of snow. So, when we got this gorgeous wet snow, we decided to have a family fun day. We probably got between 5-6 inches of snow, and we were thrilled! I bet you ladies who get snow all of the time are thinking, “you can keep your little snow, we don’t want anymore!”Because we don’t get a lot of snow, I don’t have appropriate “snow gear.” So, I have to have on my fashionable warm clothing which worked out just fine. I am wearing a Dennis Basso coat that I purchased from QVC. I love it because it is warm and also it is reversible!
My daughter, who just moved back from Alaska, has plenty of cold weather gear. She wanted to make sure that I took her “fashionable” cold weather gear since I poked at her for her attire in this post. Lol! Her cold weather gear is not cheap, but it is what you need if you are going to be out in the cold and wet. She is wearing Arc’teryx, and she swears by this brand. Here are a similar jacket and pants to hers. Her boots are called Xtratufs, and EVERYONE wears these in Alaska. They get the insulated type, and they wear them all year long. It is essential to stay warm and dry when you live in such a harsh climate. As I was going to get dressed, she insisted on taking a pic of my Christmas Vacation look. Lol! Little man thought my boots (they are Ashleigh’s) were a lot bigger than his. He just kept staring at my feet. Lol!
It was a stick your tongue out and catch a snowflake, a, throw a snowball and run like heck, kind of day. It was also a “let’s build a snowman” and make hot chocolate kind of day. Joseph and Kayla got to work on making the body of the snowman. Everybody helped in making the snowman, even little Beckham. He was making sure that the snowman didn’t run off. Lol! Emersyn found her own Olaf. Lol! He featured blackberry eyes, a boxwood mouth, a carrot nose, and buttons made of railroad rocks. Lol! Joe contributed one of his hats, and I added a scarf that I made years ago. I set the tripod up and put the camera on a timer so that we could get a family picture of all of us together. Joseph waited until the timer started flashing that it was ready to take the picture and then he shook the tree to make the snow fall. Lol! We got doused! These two are hard to get a picture with so I felt lucky that they let me get one of the three of us. I wish my other son had been here since we never get one of all three of them together.
Little man started to get cold, so he and I went inside to make some hot chocolate. Then these two started making fun of me for being so short. I AM NOT SHORT! I am 5’6″ tall, and that is not short, they are just giants.
I hope you enjoyed my snow-day Especially when they stand on their tip-toes!!!
