It's too cold to go outside and take advantage of the almost 6 inches of snow, and amazingly there has been so much snow this winter that the girls aren't quite as enamored with it as they ought to be. This is the first year that Jillian and Alyssa have gone sledding without us. They've just suited up and headed out back for the first few snow storms. Suzy still prefers to stay warm inside with Mommy since Veronica's not a huge fan of the snow yet. Suzy will go sledding with Mike or I if we go out while Vee is napping, but she prefers to explore the woods and play hide and seek. Sledding makes you go pretty fast, and Suzy's quite cautious about her speed of life.
On our way home from dinner with the Gasts' this evening Alyssa says "Oh no! we forgot to make time to play with the Nicholases." When Mike and I replied that we had had a pretty full day of playing with other friends and it was too cold to play outside today anyway, Suzy responded "We forgot to ask if we could go outside and play and You forgot to say No Mom". Guess we'll have to remember tomorrow.
