Learning How To Do The Snow

 No, Elliot did not start out happy with this situation.  He absolutely loved his new sled when it was unpacked from the box and sitting in the living room for him to play with (thank you so much, Auntie Santa!).  But once I got him all suited up and finally out in the snow learning how to ride in it, Elliot was not a happy camper.  Apparently, sleds are not meant to be pulled through the fluffiest, thickest part of the snow.  Doing so causes much toppling over and ending up with ones face in the snow.  (Yes, this mumma had some learning to do about how to pull a sled.)  But once I took him out to the street where the snow was packed and slippery, we both got the hang of this sledding thing.  And it was fun, fun, fun!

We are so happy that you got the hang of it, but so sorry that it took so much "dumping" of the boy!! Who would think you needed an instruction book to take a kid on a sled ride!?!? Oh, maybe a girl from SoCal!?! LOL
We got 1/4 inch of snow today--you got waaay more!! I think Elliot's little red sled is gonna get lots of use around YOUR house this winter!!! Love you all!!

I can't believe how much snow you have! Is that typical? I had no idea. Missy, do you have a proper winter coat with all of the bells and whistles? Let's hope so! Elliot is so cute it's hard not to get in the car and head there right now! We love you :)
