Winter fun





This sight was just too cute not to post! Peter, Aaron and Nathan went out to play and shovel, while Anya Rashi and I watched the snow (and snowballs) fly from inside. Then I stuffed Anya Rashi into her snowsuit, hat, mittens, and boots. The result? A devastatingly cute (and completely immobile) little puffball of a girl!

The boys built a fort complete with two towers -- Peter has been reading them The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkein, coincidentally . . . Anya Rashi took her first little sled ride, and walked down the street with me to deliver a thank you note to our neighbors.

She has been transfixed by falling snow when watching it from inside the house, and outside was no different. She was the quietest we've ever seen her, as she tried to make sense of the floating white specks landing on her cheeks and fluttering through the air around her.

One thought did cross my mind -- what would our nice hotel ladies say about having the baby out in 25-degree weather?! These were the same ladies who warned us not to give Anya Rashi a bath in Kolkata's winter (70+ degree weather, with lows in the 50s!!). It's probably good that they didn't see our outdoor fun. :o)

It looks like our Minnesota weather! It's funny how these little bengali girls adjust so well to cold weather. Maya love the snow!! I don't think she'll like being out this weekend. We're supposed to be 15 below..yek!!

Hi Peter and Nancy, I'm so glad everyone's home safe and sound. I'm about 300 emails behind, so I'm just getting caught up on your adventure.

Love,
Drew

Ok, now I feel bad that I haven't taken Daya out in the snow this winter yet. I hate being out there so I have deprived her. :) Anya looks too cute in her winter gear. Thanks for the motivation...
