we can’t be inside anymore!!!!

who knew that the 10 degree temperature on Saturday was considered a heat wave compared to the –30 wind chill of last night….so cold the buses wouldn’t start Monday morning….many schools closed….ours only a 2 hour delay.

This was Cooper’s first time driving by himself…getting faster and faster every time….Caroline would run with him…and Cruiser, a very protective dog, followed the kids around too.

Seriously if I lived where you guys do, I'd probably learn to love winter. Those toys look like a blast!

Your snow looks so beautiful, but I can imagine you go crazy being cooped up for too long. Looks like fun outside at your house! We stay inside when it's 30 degrees out. You probably laugh at that! :)

You guys sure know how to make the most of these winter conditions!! The snowmobile looks like a ton of fun...can't imagine how much fun it is for your kiddos!
(love that green!)

Oh my girls would love a ride on a snowmobile!! I love a sunny winter day with snow on the ground! They beat the muddy slushy overcast ones we are having right now any day!
Enjoy the day
