Walkin' in a Winter Wonderland (for a day)

I thought today was going to be the day.  The snow started falling....and then it stopped....and it is still brown in Minnesota, four days before Christmas.  So in an effort to help myself feel more winter-y and Christmas-y, I dug up a few pics from a beautiful winter wonderland day in late November. The snow covering only lasted a day or two, but we took full advantage of this new learning opportunity for Griffin. 

Griffin loves the outdoors, it seems the snowy outdoors are no exception.
He also loves being jousted into the air.

So trusting....
How cute is this snow bear outfit?  Griffin got to borrow it from his cousin Levi.
 
Huh? 
I'll give you one guess what/who he is looking at....
Yep, the one who loves snow more than Santa loves cookies.  Cooper actually prefers the temperature to be quite a bit colder than it is.  He likes about 10 degrees....then when he plays Frisbee, he doesn't overheat.  Right now he can only do a round of about 10 throws before he has to go snow diving (which becomes problematic when there is no snow).
So don't be fooled.  This beautiful white landscape is not what Minnesota looks like right now, though it should.  I will say that hauling an infant around to do Christmas shopping has been quite a bit easier with the lack of snow, and I'm sure those traveling around here for the holidays are loving the low-risk of delays or bad-weather driving.  However, I am a true Minnesotan at heart and I am still holding out for a white Christmas.  LET IT SNOW!
