Warming Up To Snow,...

Wednesday in our area the snow event was pretty much a non-event with just a dusting by night-fall, and while Isaac was interested in the sleet and flurries from the living room window,...he wasn't into going outside and actually 'touching' the freezing precipitation,...or at least not after the first finger-tip test,...


However overnight a snow storm,...snowed a couple inches of crystalized H20,...turning our neighborhood into a winter wonderland,....



And Isaac's reaction to the World of White?


"Nahhhhh,...I ain't interested."


Nevertheless,...Mamas can be a persistent breed and after breakfast I proceeded to deck out our reluctant little guy into 'snow-gear' - and clutching big brother's hand, and I do mean CLUTCHING,...Isaac's snow adventure began,...


True to form Isaac started out tentatively,...



Complained a bit,...or rather spoke his mind about the 'wet' and 'cold' and 'ick'




But not even Isaac's sensory issues were a match to the matchless appeal of a snowy front yard!!!


Notice,...hands are in 'sensory-mode' --- no touch, no touch, no touch,...



Mama was requested to SIT with Isaac on the snowy bench,...but if she did,...who would be recording the snow event for prosperity?



Big Brother, Michael instructed Isaac in the art of the perfect snowball,...


Our little guy was sooooo eager to try,....but the ick of snow on hands is about as bad as gloves or mittens on little hands,...a challenge!


"Want to build a snoooooow man?" 


"Frosty-man," Isaac christened the creation Mama and Michael made to our little guy's delight. 


No matter how little a snowman is,...it is still a snow man and charm a child,...



Happy memories made,...and sensory challenges - challenged,...'cause Isaac tries,....


Happy smiles,...that's what this Mama likes to see,...it took a while for Isaac to warm up to snow,...but it's safe to say he LOVED our snow adventure,...which makes the experience worthwhile!!!

Until I post again,...may God bless and keep you!

  1. Oh how your Isaac and my Isaac sound so much alike! We too had winter precipitation this week -- sleet with a touch of snow on Monday, a short stint of small flurries on Tuesday, and heavy snowfall on Wednesday. My Isaac would have nothing to do with the sleet/ice, but his face lit up Wednesday morning when he saw the snow. He wasn't too keen on actually getting out in it, unlike his big brother, who was elated to use the toy snow plow he got for Christmas as it was intended to be used. I couldn't find their gloves so their little hands got cold quickly, but they made the most of it. Isaac was an ornery little toot (as usual), complaining about the cold the entire time, not posing for a photo with the snowman the boys built with their daddy because he was too cold, but he eventually warmed up a bit to the idea of a snowball fight, so long as he was never hit. :) Enjoyed your photos' thanks for sharing. (P.S. I have a post with snow photos too on my blog, if you want to check it out)
