I'm all for snow, but honestly I'd rather be skiing in it on the slopes of Colorado rather than having to get out and about and have normal life to deal with when there's 6-7 inches of snow on the ground!
We did take Elyse out in it on Thursday evening, but those pictures managed to only make it to my computer at home--so I'll get those up in a few days.
Even with the snow we had a busy weekend, and we've never been ones to let the snow stop us...so the plans continued.
Friday was our only free night and when we asked Elyse what she wanted for dinner she said..."NUGGETS!!!" So we did what any all-American family would do, we drove 20 minutes farther for dinner than we needed to so we could get Elyse nuggets from Chick-fil-A--because no other nuggets would do!
Saturday morning we just hung out around the house, did some laundry, Hubby shoveled the driveway and then Elyse went down for a nap...because we had big plans for her afterwards! With how well she watches movies at home, Hubby suggested taking her to see Frozen. I was a little cautious, but she literally DOESN"T MOVE when she watches movies at home so I figured it'd be worth a shot!
So...armed with popcorn, Reeses' Pieces, and Sprite, we made our way into the theater and found seats for the show. And Elyse stayed there. The ENTIRE MOVIE. She didn't move except for when I lifted her from my lap to her daddy's lap. And she was quiet...completely. Except for when she would ask questions "Where'd the snowman go?" "Where'd the princess go?" and my absolute favorite..."Mommy, Ana ok?" (in reference to one of the princesses).

|Completely engrossed in the previews...she was NOT. going to look at me!|
And I have to be honest, as I sat there watching her on her daddy's lap watch a movie in a real theater--I might have teared up a bit. My little girl...who's going to be 2 on Friday...isn't a baby anymore. She's growing up right before my eyes...and I honestly wouldn't mind it at all if the clock were FROZEN for just a little bit so I could soak her up.
Sunday was our first family Christmas with Hubby's extended family that was a made a little bit interesting when one of his cousin's & his family were stranded on the Interstate for 3+ hours while accidents were cleaned up. Yeah...definitely not a great time. They finally arrived about 4:30 and we were able to have a quick gift exchange and some fellowship before we had to head off to another party!
