Winter Children

 Winter children grin during the first ski of the year.  This was Thanksgiving weekend... no snow at home, so we drove to the top of Togwotee Pass to find some.
.... learn to Nordic ski at age 2.  And she's fast!
....picnic in the snow. when they can't feel their fingers, and throw snow over their faces as magic fairy dust to help them hike faster. (At Taggart Lake trail last weekend.)
 Winter children are sad when snow goes down their mittens.
 ....borrow mom's hat when hers gets shrunk by the dryer.  :)
 Winter babies ride inside of mommy's borrowed coat. 
 ...and sleep through snow adventures with face out of the wind.
 Winter children dress up in Christmas dresses! skate on the barely frozen pond. 
 ....shovel snow with the edges of their skates.
 Winter babies wear pink hats.
