A long cold winter in Minnesota
Sorry I haven't posted in a while. This is the time of year that I hibernate. It has been a very cold winter. Colder than the average winter in Minnesota. The kids can't even play in the snow because it is too cold. Dennis is usually the one that goes outside with them. So I have no pictures of the snow. I tell people that I am allergic to the cold and snow! It is absolute torture to go out to the bus stop with Lexi. Even to do daily errands is torture when it is 10 below zero. When going somewhere with the kids it takes 30 minutes to get everyone dressed with coats, boots, hats, mittens. So by the time I grab my coat, gloves, and bag they are sweating so bad they start pealing their clothes off, and so we start all over again. Well, it is now March 1 8:30pm and the temp is 8 degrees. I am so ready for NOT spring but Summer. Spring in Minnesota is still winter to me. I will try to post some pictures soon when Lexi and Timmy get well. Lexi has strep throat and Timmy has a bad cough. Hope everyone stays warm!
