Our Snowy Weekend

"I really want to just pick her up and drop her in a snow bank. I think it'd be hilarious!"

And this is the kind of comment that Eric is going to have to be sure to exclude from his "Father of the Year" application.

I didn't allow him to drop the kid in any snow banks (you're welcome, grandparents), but we did take Little Gabs out to play in the snow on Saturday. She still hasn't grown accustomed to getting all bundled up, and she was less than impressed as we zipped her up in snow bibs and a ski jacket. But we'd like to think she had a good time.

She didn't smile as much as she usually does though. She may share her mother's sentiments about cold weather.

Gabs giving her Papai the ol' stink eye after he picked her up and ever so gently tossed her into a flat spot of snow in the yard (which is decidedly different than dropping her in a snow bank.)

Making her very first snow angel! (Or was she fighting to try and get up/roll over? Either way, the result was one fine snow angel!)

I think someone must have mentioned hot chocolate (hence, the big smiles).

Sunday evening we headed over to a friend's house to watch the Superbowl. There were 3 other little girls (ages 2 months, 2 years, and 3 years) along with three other couples. We had a really good time, and Gabriela completely wore herself out trying to keep up with the big girls. (She slept until 10:30 this morning and then laid down for a nap at 12:30 - she is only now waking up at 4:00!!!)

Gabriela was rather indifferent as to who won the Superbowl. So she decided to just support her favorite college team instead: the Georgia Bulldogs!

It's been snowing all day and we're supposed to get 5-9" of snow between now and tomorrow night. While Gabs and I try to fight cabin fever, I'll leave you with a video clip of her first sledding experience down our driveway on Saturday!

She's got the "stink-eye" look down pat!

Maybe it was the thought of hot chocolate that brought on the smiles, but I think it was the fact that Mom got her up off the ground! Being UP to see is WAY more fun than the upside-down-turtle feeling of making angels in snow suits! :)

Jim and I love her UGA outfit. Start 'em young; raise 'em right!

of COURSE she was indifferent to the superbowl result!

now, make this mineirinha watch a Cruzeiro and Atletico Mineiro match and it will be a whole different story! ;)
