Don't all kids like snow?

This picture was taken on December 5, the last time it snowed in Washington. We had a repeat performance of these tears earlier today when I attempted to take Baby outside while the snow was still falling. Apparently, she loves snow only as a concept. She talks about it, she loves snowmen (she has a stuffed snowman toy), she likes looking at pictures of it, but when it comes to being up close and personal with it, FORGET IT! She screamed hysterically the entire car ride home today (we were out with friends) and pointed at the windshield screaming "NO!" (which is also her word for snow). The last time she cried like that was when she had to give a bunch of blood for her allergy tests last year. I've never seen anything like it.

Good thing we don't live in Wisconsin!
