This morning, we made this:
Or really, to be perfectly honest, I made it. I was inspired by this post on Ohdeedoh. Click over--it will be worth your while to see the snow drawing of a T-Rex. Then come back to me :).
Clearly my little Valentine's image is nothing compared to that dinosaur, but I figured out my technique as I was going; you can probably see that the small hearts are much neater than the big one. Seriously, this was so much fun. And by that I mean, for me. I've got plans for more in my head, and I can't wait to do the next one. If we didn't have an outing this afternoon for which I have to get ready in a few minutes, I'd be on the balcony making one right now.
We also played, but for us that means Ninna joyfully climbs, digs, falls, sleds, and attempts her mom's crazy art ideas, while Bojey is miserable and fusses and cries until we reach a hysterical crescendo of screams after about 25 minutes, and then we have to go inside. You see, this child does not wear mittens. She has never worn them in her life. I put them on her, and she rips them off after 10 seconds. I've tried everything I can think of.
Living in Montreal, as you might imagine, is difficult for the un-mittened one. Here, as Ninna is pulling her into the backyard to start playing, you can see that Bojey is already planning her misery:
And when we get to the yard, this is how she plants herself, thumb in mouth, lovey in hand, while she bides her time until she can scream us back into the house:
This child only lived in California until she was twelve days old, but based on her pure hatred of the cold, you'd think she'd lived there forty years!
Here's one last shot--Ninna attempting her own snow drawing:
Have a great weekend! I'm not kidding about more snow drawings. I'm laughing out loud right now at the absurd idea I have for tomorrow. I hope it works so I can post it :).
