Winter Wonderland

We have snow! My kids were thrilled yesterday when the snow was deep enough to go out and play in. They bundled up and had a great time building a snow fort. Warm hot chocolate awaited them when they came in with rosy cheeks and wet snowsuits.

Today the temperature was too cold for them to go out and play. So they had fun playing inside. In this picture, Trenton is reading one of his favorite stories to Bethany and her baby. T loves the story of David and Goliath. We've read this book to him so many times, he's got it memorized. B thought it was neat that he could "read" to her.

You all know that T is my little character. Tonight he declared to me while in the bathroom (he was washing up) that he needed his privacy. Truly, I don't make this stuff up.

He held the shower curtain around him! (Excuse the bathroom floor which we are re-doing.) That boy; I don't know what he'll come up with next.

Stay warm cuz baby it's cold outside!


  1. Someone told me yesterday that in Alaska when it's like -20F or colder that kids aren't allowed to go out and play on the school playground. LOL

    "OK kids...everyone OUT - it's all the way up to -18F...go get some fresh air."

    Can you imagine????

  2. I wonder if they have a jungle gym? Their little mittens would freeze right to the bars!
    How could they even have fun...that's just too cold!

  3. Hilarious about T and the privacy! ha! That makes me laugh! Hope it's warming up for you!
