She snuck into my bed and was fast asleep-on my side of the bed!!! Little stinker! It's funny to me because I have begged her to sleep with me ever since Abe's been gone and she always thinks says, "No mommy, that's your bed. Your silly!" She always thinks its so funny when I ask her to sleep with me! Finally! I won't have to sleep by myself!
Those of us who live in Ga do not get to "experience" snow that often. And when we do, it's usually just flurries or maybe an inch deep. Which is fine with me because I hate being cold. I was reading a book with Elle about a snow fight and realized that Elle had never played in the snow....She kept asking me tons of questions about the snow......that's sad!
Stone Mountain created a man made snow park on Stone Mountain! How creative is that! Now all of us southerners can experience playing in the snow too!
I took the girls to Snow Mountain at Stone Mountain this past Friday with our friend/neighbor Jenn and her son Andrew. We had so much fun!!!! It was absolutely worth the drive and the money! We got there at 3:30. First, we made snow angels and threw snow balls.
Then we attempted to make a snowman....we had fun trying. Never quite made one. Elle and Andrew just had fun digging in the snow.
Then Andrew and I went tubing down the hill. Kids have to be 42in. to tube. Elle is 38 inches so she couldn't go. She was sad at first, but then Jenn bought her a pretzal and all her worries went away. Tubing was so much fun!! Andrew was so brave! We waited in line for about 30 minutes, then we were able to go down the hill. After we tubed, we rode the skyrail to the top of Stone Mountain. This was really fun!! Once we got to the top we walked around on top of Stone Mountain.....Jenn was having an anxiety attack when I took Elle and Andrew to walk around the top of the mountain. She volunteered to stay behind with Lily Kate.
After the skyrail we went to an area called "Little Angels". This area was my favorite part. It was perfect for Elle and Andrew who are 3 and 4. They were able to ride a sled down a little hill, play on slides, throw snowballs etc. But only little kids were allowed in this area.
I had to go buy "snow clothes" for Elle to play in. All the snow clothes were soldout at Target, so I had to just buy the left overs. Elle's pants were soooo big on her. I rolled them up twice, but they were still a little big. While we were playing in the "Little Angels" area, I notice Elle walking towards me with her pants around her ankles with this horrified look on her face. I was laughing so hard I couldn't even help her!! It was so funny!! All night poor little Elle had to keep pulling her pants up because they kept falling down around her ankles! I'm still laughing about her pants.
