The Po' Boys' Snow Shoe

Last Saturday morning found us once again with six inches of snow and no snow shoes for the boys. Zach went to Wal-mart, but there was nary a boot to be found. So we improvised.

Turns out Collin is a mountain goat in the snow, but I had to pry Grants arms off my neck after our brief outing.  For an Ohio baby, he is a bit of a weather wimp. But so am I.

Wow. that's a switch in personality.

Ha ha. Have you read Glenn Beck's The Christmas Sweater? Similar snow shoes play an important role. :)

I would do that to my shoes in gym class one year. I had it first period and we'd go outside into the grass, which was still wet. After a day or two of yummy-smelling shoes my friend and I started wearing bags over them to avoid the mildew smell. Glad it works in the snow too! We don't have snow boots either, but thankfully about a year ago I gave in and bought Max some Lightning McQueen rain boots he really wanted and they're prefect for snow!

I love those boots! That's such a great idea...we'll have to do that the next time it snows. Which, honestly, I hope it doesn't do again until NEXT winter!

Great idea! I should have done that to my own shoes.

That's a great idea. Seeing how it only snows here maybe once a year, that would save us a bunch of money! It's not like anybody will notice...the white bags will blend in with the white snow.
