A Cold Wintery Day

Today, since it was a holiday and Dan didn't have school, we decided to go sledding down a big hill by our apartment. I think I spent more time getting the kids all bundled up than we actually spent sledding (when I say we, I don't include myself in that...I was the camera lady). Caden loved it, along with Dan. Kember was really cold (she got some snow in her shoes, so I can totally sympathize) and I think she's scared of sledding. We tried sledding last year with her too, and she didn't think much of it. Maybe we just need to play in the snow more. Caden really had a blast. He was digging in the snow and trying to walk, which was quite the feat since he was so bundled up. Here are some pictures I thought were cute.


Today was my first day watching Maeli for 3 hours instead of two. They are bringing her a half hour earlier and coming to pick her up a half hour later. I must admit that I almost wasn't out of bed this morning. The kids were definitely up and awake, but I had gone to bed late last night and didn't relish waking up (although, I never really do relish waking up...in fact I think it's right up there with my least favorite things to do). I ignored the kids for awhile until I figured it would be best to greet Maeli semi-conscious instead of mostly asleep. She's warming up to us and I was able to set her down a couple times today with out having her cry. I wonder if I should take her shopping tomorrow...I have a few errands to run, and it would be good to get them done early, and not that three hours is a long time, but it would make the time go faster. I think I'll ask tomorrow if that's okay. When I took her to play group it was definitely interesting to have three. There is a lot more juggling involved.

Those two pictures of just Caden totally made me laugh. All bundled and that look on his face is . . . can't think of the right word. Very fun to see the pictures though!

Glad you all got out today. We finally hung our clock! That's about all. :)

I feel Kember's pain, I hate being cold too! Cute pictures though, I'm glad you guys got to have a family outing!

It made me feel guilty that Kember's feet were cold...so I was motivated to send the boots today! Maybe next time she will like it better. Also, the cake you made Caden is sooooo cute! You are amazing.

Can I just say "Brrrr!"
I totally empathize with Kember. See, that's why you need to move down here. No snow.

HAHA, love the close up of Caden. Gave me a giggle. It looks sooo cold there! I'm such a wuss now--if it's colder than like 60 here I won't go outside. Spoiled rotten, eh? We do miss sledding though--and Brooklyn loooooooves the snow. Oh well, we'll deal. :D
