Snowcation

Snow family

This weekend was Maisy’s first trip to the snow that she can remember.  Our friend, Angie, got four families with adorable children to come out and play in the snow.

Maisy was not too sure about the snow at first.  It was a lot of, “No way, No touch, Maisy up, Messy.”  After a walk on solid ground and some getting used to the snow, her opinion of snow had shifted to the positive side of tolerable.  She even braved the sled a few times.

The snow did not come without some complication.  We got the car stuck in the snow twice and ended up bringing someone else’s chains with us- so we had to quickly scrounge some more (thanks Mike!).  Just as we were leaving I backed us into a snow bank (where a driveway SHOULD have been) and got us stuck again.  Maisy kept asking, “What’s happening?” followed with, “Be careful”.  I guess she’s heard that a few times!  Todd was able to wiggle us free and we were on our way home.

Snooooooow!

We had another big achievement today as well-  Maisy went on the potty like a big girl before her bath tonight.  We were very excited and rewarded her with coveted stickers!  Hopefully this is the beginning of the end of diapers.

Hope you are enjoying winter, more later!

Much love, Todd, Becky and Maisy
