Winter Wonderland

Winter has hit the Midwest. Saturday brought our first true blue snowstorm and it's not going anywhere in the near future. The high for today is 30 degrees. We're frozen in and getting practice skating around on the icy roads.

This snow reminded both Jared and I of last winter and Ryann's first real interaction with snow. At first she was a bit unsure. It was cold. It was slippery. It was confusing.


But as she got used to it and learned that it could be fun, she would regularly beg us to let her outside to play. We would usually bundle up and rush outside to play for a few minutes before tumbling back inside to warm up and dry off. However, this morning she had ideas of her own. She disappeared into her room and came out carrying boots, socks, and a sweater. She demanded to be dressed and let outside. With her giraffe of course. We had to acquiesce.

Ryann's about 13 months in the first two videos and about 14 months in the second.


  1. She was always so fashionable. :) What a cutie pie.

  2. If I had those shapely skinny legs I'd go without pants under my coat too. (I'd probably be wearing a dress, however)

  3. Hahahahaha!!! The magic of falling snow!!! Love it.
