Snow Day, The Sequel

Another day off from school, and here's the reason!  Both school buses and the children who wait for them do not do well on intensely cold mornings like this. (I took this photo at 8 a.m., when the temperature was already rising!)
So, the Farm Hands got to stay in the basement again, and what do you think they did today, after yesterday's Day of Destruction? You guessed it:
Hank: "So this dust pan was important to you?"
Rodeo: "Was that YOUR pillow?"

I think they were getting their revenge for having to wear booties outside.  After trying to carry Hank the Tank in from a short walk yesterday, I was determined that they would both wear paw protection today.  

Hank: "I do not like them, Sam I Am!"
Rodeo: "Crybaby!"

After 20 minutes of putting on their booties and all my clothing layers, it took Hank exactly 3-1/2 minutes to do his business and go back inside.  Then, there was Rodeo:
"Snow is lovely, don't you think? I'll just take another moment to embrace it!"
After about 10 more *freezing* minutes of rolling, making snow angels and burying himself in the snow, Rodeo finally decided to rejoin Hank in the house...thank goodness!
