Now I know why.
I have three reasons myself.....and while that is a far cry from the nine that my mom had, it still makes me sigh when the kids get so excited to go play in the snow. And I wonder to myself, "How long will they actually be out there? Is it worth it?"
Getting kids ready to play in the snow is a big ordeal.
First we start with putting on footie pj's.
Then we move on to pants, sweatshirts, and boots.
Then finally, coats, hats, and gloves........starting to see what I am talking about??

So, each time it snows and the kids start to ask when they can go out, I often wonder, is it really worth all of the time and effort?
And it usually only takes me a few seconds after we are outside to remember, "Yes! It is worth it"
Just look at these three enjoying the snow:
