And then we came home to this...



As much as we enjoyed San Diego, it was not fun to come home to almost 18 inches of snow.  Plus, because it was so cold, Eliel couldn't even play in it until  the weekend.  But once he did, he had a blast!  If we put him down in the snow, it came up to his waist.  I'm sure had it been fresh powder, he would have sank even further down.  At first he was a bit scared by it but after a while, he got used to it being so deep.

No matter how cold, Eliel loves to play in the snow.  He was outside buried up to his chest for almost 40 minutes!  That was in addition to the 30 minutes he was playing around with his shovel.  Since it was a bit warmer on this day, both Eliel and Daddy (and Nugget!) came back in the house soaking wet.  There was lots of fun to be had though!




Well, it wasn't all fun and games anyway...
