I don’t want to get in trouble for making generalizations, but I couldn’t help but notice something as I went through all of our snow pictures yesterday…
I’ll just mostly let the pictures do the talking.
How Boys Play in the Snow
Make a Snowman…
then tackle it.
OR make a Snowman…
then eat it.
(I don’t understand. It’s so…dirty! Boys are weird!!).
Snowballs fights are fun…
and the bigger the snowball, the better!!
When you run out of things to do, I don’t know…you could roll up a big snow-wheel…
and then you could, like, put it on top of each other.
and long after everyone else has gone inside, it’s still fun to just hang out in your Winter Wonderland…
eatin’ dirty snow and enjoyin’ the great outdoors.
How Girls Play in the Snow
Make a pristine and beautiful snowwoman and give her matching accessories…
(these are my beautiful nieces, Anna and Abigail! Love you, girls!!)
Or make heavenly snow angels with your sisters.
(and that’s little Kate there on the left. Love you, Katerbelle!)
Or pretend that you are a snow ballerina, dancing and twirling on the ice.
You get so excited to have a snowball fight with your brother…
until you (immediately) get hit in the face.
Snowball fight over.
(we have ALL been here, have we not, ladies?)
In fact, snow play over. Get me a blanket. I’m done.
And when all else fails and you have fully realized how miserably cold and wet it is outside…
(I know I used this photo yesterday, but I think it deserves to be seen over and over again).
Go inside where it is warm and read a book by the fire.
But thankfully, whether you’re a boy or a girl, and whether you play like a weirdo or a perfectly normal person, at the end of the day, when the snowball fights are over, and the tears are forgotten (and the dirty snow has somehow been digested), I’m glad we can all agree on on thing…
Heavy on the marshmallows.
