The other day G asked me if he could go outside. I told him no, it's cold. He asked again and I decided what the heck I will let them out back and I can stay inside, the yard is fenced, it'll be fine. I told him that he had to wait until I put L to bed.
I laid L down and then got the boys all dressed.
Once they got outside they asked for their dump trucks and bulldozers. I couldn't believe how long M sat in the snow and plowed. G was more interested in eating the snow. After M decided he was done (20 minutes or so - the sun was almost down) G said he wanted to stay out. He wanted a turn with the bulldozer. He lasted maybe another 2 minutes. I told him next time he can use the bulldozer first.
Once we got inside I made them some hot chocolate and gave them a snow man cookie. I sat them on the couch and covered them with two blankets. They don't have waterproof gloves so their little hands were frozen. Then we snuggled and watched a little bit of a movie.
They are just too cute!
