cortneyandjon in winter

headedoutside.jpgAfter months of waiting for winter to arrive it looks like it is finally here to stay for a while.  Really we couldn't be happier.  Cortney was even excited to go outside and shovel for the first time this season yesterday (yes, we know she's nuts).  We do love winter, but it's likely that our disappointment over the mild winter this year was due to our desire to introduce Calvin to snow.  We feel much better after getting our chance to do that today.  After his lunch Cortney suited herself up, then suited Calvin up, and headed outside for a brief romp in the snow.  outinthesnow.jpgCalvin thought it was pretty bright out there, and he's squinting in most of our pictures.  But after a couple of minute sitting in the snow he finally opened his eyes to see what was going on, and he thought the white stuff was pretty funny.  Until he tried to crawl in it and found that movement in the snowsuit was not possible.  Then he just wanted to go inside.  It was fun while it lasted, though!  And back inside he went right back to terrorizing the other four legged animals in the house... I don't think the cats are as excited about his crawling as we are.
