How Many Layers?

Yesterday afternoon was the first big foray into the snow for Calvin and Ruby. Calvin was so gung-ho, and I knew Ruby would not want to be left out.

So, I layered her up...

That's one pair of tights, some knit leggings, warm socks, a t-shirt and a sweatshirt.

The snowpants were definitely the icing on the cake for these two.

Daddy took them up the hill...

And gave them a shove.

Wipe out!

It wasn't long before I was faced with this:
She cried every time she face-planted in the snow, which was a lot.
But she was inconsolable when Cory deposited her back in the house with Mommy.
It is rough being 2. I'm convinced.

Finally, I give you Survivor Man and Survivor Man Jr. showing off their fort in the remote wilderness of the Antarctic.


  1. I just realized last night I hadn't checked your blog in a few days and feared I would have a snowpile to shovel through, but I see I'm caught up! Poor Ruby, I loved her layers, though! :)

  2. awesome. that fort looks solid. the pic of ruby crying is priceless!
