Baby, It's Cold Outside!

*Playing in the snow with children, How-Tos* (Use pictures, below, for visual aid)

#1. Bundle up. Start with a warm layer, add snow bibs, scarves, hats, (enormous) gloves, super plush and bulky parkas, and snow boots. Once the little sugarplums are unable to move a muscle, you'll know you're set! Just as you're ready to head out the door you will hear "I have to go potty!" Peel off layer after layer, send them to the bathroom, then start again from the beginning.

#2. Once outside fling yourself into the snow and start vigorously moving your arms and legs to create the perfect snow angel. Repeat this step 42 million times all throughout your yard.

#3. Sneak a nibble of snow when no one is watching ;)

When you've had your fill of the fluffy white stuff, come in for some hot cocoa!

Enjoy these special moments with your own sugarplums. They grow so quickly!

Holiday Traditions

For the last several years we've been searching for a tradition we can call our own, and this year we found an outing that we loved ~ a visit to the Pittock Mansion. The girls and I made the drive with my mom and mother-in-law, and had such a wonderful time ooohing and ahhhing over the decorations. The pictures don't do it justice, but I promise you, it was well worth it!
*Note: No flash photography was allowed, please forgive the blurry pictures! :)
