These belong on the first snow day, but I forgot to post links…
Selah’s first sledding run with Emeree: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=chrKUMKbobg
Asher tells me about the snowmobile:
And Jesse had some pretty sweet pictures of the first day on his phone to add:
The kids getting a special cockpit your from the pilot on the way there:
For not being snow kids, they were pretty comfortable:
This was within minutes of going outside – their first attempts at snow angels.

And a gorgeous sunset to end the day:
Oh, and proof Jesse and I were there too – enjoying (yes, I mean it!) the cold!
I’m pretty sure my kids had THE best possible first snow experience.
They had never so much as held an ice cube probably, and so Colorado pretty blew their minds because not only was there SNOW, but there was Hannah and the rest of the amazing Jacobson clan. Even hanging with their bunch would have been a blast, but Ms. Kelly (aka Hannah’s Mom) had multiple tricks up her sleeve and planned the absolute best possible week we could have imagined. The hospitality was out of this world and we are grateful they are part of our ‘chosen family’! Lucky us! 😉❤️
First up was a trip to a cabin with their family in Fairplay. Not only was there killer views on the way AND snow, but there were the bonus elements of snowmobiles, sledding, and kiddos around Selah’s age.
I’m not going to lie, I was worried about the snow clothing situation. Not only about the warmth part of it, but also getting and keeping it on the kids who I can barely get to wear pants and close toed shoes on school days. Kelly thankfully outfitted our kids and to my surprise, it all worked out more perfect than we could have imagined. Plus, they were adorable! I mean, those little bundles of huggable puffy jacket cuteness were too much. It completely changed my view on cold climates, I’ll tell you that much!
And Sey, my social butterfly made fast friends with Emeree (I could be spelling that completely wrong), Hannah’s goddaughter.
My favorite line of Selah’s was, ‘Mom, Hannah is like my fairy godmother, too, right?’. Can’t beat that sweetness. Or our very first snow experience. And more to come! ⛄️
