Not a swimsuit

We had another big snow storm this weekend. Church was cancelled and we had a great day bumming around in our pajamas. When Nate went out to shovel the driveway, I decided that it would be a great time to dress Azalea up in the new snow suit that Grandma Nina gave her. I was, however, mistaken.

I think the misunderstanding happened when the word "suit" left my lips. I'm pretty sure that anytime Azalea hears the word "suit" she automatically thinks, "swimsuit" and that she obviously must be going swimming. When I began stuffing her into something that was decidedly NOT a swimsuit there began to be much weeping, wailing, and gnashing of teeth.


I persevered.



We'll probably need to get her some gloves. Or some socks wrapped in grocery sacks.



Azalea appeared to be apprehensive about the snow...though I prefer to think she was just keeping an eye out for ninjas.


We didn't spend too much time outside...mainly because I was not dressed for the elements. But you can bet we'll be out there again before the 50 degree weather comes back. We can't have Azalea growing out of that suit without getting any use out of it!


I'm sure she'll like it more once she forgets what a swim suit is right?

Waiting for Parker

We've started going to Parker's school early to pick him up so that Azalea has time to play on the playground equipment. Why on earth did it take me two months to decide to do this? I don't know...

She can go down the slide all by herself...but it takes her about three minutes to gather her courage.

Chicken Little

This is the best picture we have of Azalea's Halloween costume.

And it was taken by Ben. (Thanks Ben)

I could feel bad about the pitiful lack of pictures that we took of her on the second Halloween of her life; but, considering the waffling that went on about her costume...I'm gonna go ahead and declare us successful parents once again.

Hope you all had a wonderful Halloween. And from the looks of all the adorable costumes floating around on blogs right about looks like you did. :) Happy November!
