Leftovers from 2009 (part 2)

This is the first year we have taken the boys out to play in the snow. You know full snow gear: snow pants, jackets, gloves, hats, yada, yada. I plan to show you their responses in pictures.

People ask parents of twins on a regular basis: "Do they have the same personalities?"

Here is my answer.....

snow angel aka swimming

Not so much. :)

I knew we were in a bit of trouble when they both balked at putting on the snow pants. Next battle was the gloves. Alex hated the gloves but when he took them off outside he realized that he hated the alternative too. Some things you just have to learn I guess.

We probably lasted about 10 minutes. Jared pulled them on the sled and we made snow angels. Jared and I may have gotten into a bit of a snow ball fight. I thought I'd be funny and throw one at his back but due to the many years that I have spent off the softball field since High School I hit him right on the neck causing the snow to go right down into his jacket. Yeah, it was ON after that. :)

Eli had fun "swimming" in the snow (aka making snow angels) and still asks to go out and swim. Too cute. We have also gone sledding since and they both enjoyed that AND the snow gear wasn't such a big hassle. They are definitely getting more used to it. Little do they know they don't get much of a choice. They are Michiganders!

Aw! How lovely. My twin and I may look identical but our reactions would be similar to your boys; she'd cry, I'd make angels!! ;O)
