We finally got everything loaded up and moved to our new place in Wisconsin. It took us longer to get here since we had to stop for gas quite often and give the kids (my daughter and her little cousin) breaks to stretch and go potty. I was knocked out as we approached the city. Denard claims to have been trying to wake me up…of course, I remember none of this….lol! I was up just in time to see us approaching the community where we would be living. I was just in awe at all of the snow and even more in shock at the cold I felt when I stepped outside. It was about 3 or 4 am when we finally got inside and got settled. My parents followed us up here…and that was such a blessing. My parents and my great-nephew got settled into their hotel and the three of us snuggled up on an air mattress. That was the coldest sleep ever! I knew we had to get the furniture in and the bed up soon as we could the next day.
That morning I woke up around 9 and waited a little bit to get up. Aida must have a sixth sense about when my eyes open because she was soon looking around. I started getting bundled up to get some things out of my car and she followed. The moment we stepped out the door she asked, “Mommy, can I make a snow angel now?!?” Keep in mind, she has been asking me this all week and the past two months that her dad has been sending her pictures of the snow. I did not even get a chance to answer her. Next thing I knew, she had flopped back into the blanket of snow and starting moving her arms and legs.She was enjoying herself and I was panicking because she only had 2 extra outfits until we started unpacking. And there she is…having the time of her life laying in the super cold snow.
A day or two later, after most of our unpacking was done, I took her and her cousin outside to play in the snow and get a few pictures.
I am excited to finally be able to use a scrapbook kit with snow related elements and have photos to go with it…lol!
Now I am off to fix her something to eat and start washing my hair (I reallllyyy do not want to..lol!)….
