And then there's my dog. Oh, I love her to pieces. She's the best kid I have! ;-) But do not let her cutie-patootie face fool you; she is a vicious mitten killer.
EVERY time I send her out in the snow with the kids, one of them loses a mitten in the first 3 minutes and comes back in crying.
On the day these were taken, it was just Birdie and me and Gigi. Within ten minutes, she had stolen this pink mitten of Ellerie's, Ellerie's hat when I got the mitten away from her, My glove when I got Elle's hat away from her and one of Ellie's second pair of mittens when I got my glove back. And I was exhausted. There is literally no way to catch her. She's FAST!!!! You have to lure her or trick her in some way or wait for her to get bored of the keep-away.
She is a menace. A menace wearing a cute coat I made her, but a menace nonetheless. In fact, the floral corduroy is just a tad "granny" for this little rebel.
Next time, she gets hot pink flames and a "tatoo" that says mom!
