as mentioned earlier, on saturday i told bela she could play out in the snow after her nap. so when i was having problems getting her to settle down or a nap, i told her that she had to take a nap or no playing in the snow. she immediately laid down and closed her eyes and slept for four hours. there was so much snow by that point though that her playing in the snow didnt last very long. luckily she is really light and didnt just sink into the snow, but we had about 14 inches.
