Each child had their own plan when they were ready to come inside. Jonathan, once he'd had enough of wet, white stuff, wanted to cuddle up in blankets and watch a video. As a total aside, can anyone identify the video he's watching from the scene shown in the picture below?
Elsie Mae (who was the first to come in), on the other hand, hung out in her footie pjs that she had worn out under her snowsuit until she warmed up, then she cuddled under a big sweatshirt on the couch and crashed for a nap. After all, just trying to move all bundled up like that requires significant effort when you are just 2 years old.
Rebekah stayed out in the snow for at least an hour and 1/2 or so longer than the little kids. Once inside, she promptly warmed her hands up under hot running water and wated to hold her littlest sibling.
And even now, after several more snowfalls, they haven't tired of the snow, even though their mother has tired of shoveling the driveway...
