It has been bitter here for the last couple of weeks. We have had days where we haven't even seen 0 degrees. Right now it is -10. It's cold. When it is cold like this I have a tendency to just hole up in the house under a blanket. I have no need and no wish to be outside. But the little people around here disagree. And when the pleading reaches heights where I can no longer stand it we go out. Yesterday the outdoor temperature reached a balmy 15 and sunny. So we bundled the kids up in every single piece of clothing they own and went outside.
Anna tried to freeze herself from the inside out. She ate as much snow as she could pick up with her little gloved mitten. And more with her bare hand when she thought I wasn't looking.
These pictures really don't do justice to the amount of snow we have. Mark crawled everywhere he went because every time he stood up he sunk in up to his nipples. I was seriously afraid we were going to lose the little one and find her in the spring still eating snow.
They had a great time out there. It took almost as long to get them dressed and undressed as we spent out there.
Next time we go out I have serious snowman plans.
The last picture I grabbed from Google Images. The others were taken by yours truly.
