baby it's cold outside

It's such a bummer that the few times we've finally actually got any good amount of snow around here this winter, the wicked wind rolls in with it and it's way too unbelievably cold to actually go out and play.

They teased us with the promise of snow all day yesterday... we got a slight dusting early morning -enough that they called off school because the roads were just barely covered but the forecast called for snow all day. But then we really didn't get any more snow all day.
The kids kept begging me to go out, but it was wet and sloppy snow and it was only in the wet grass, not really worth the 15 minutes of bundling up, so I convinced them to hold off for the good stuff later in the day.

Which we never got.

Until overnight.

We now have a nice five inches of snow out there!
But it's also only 12° outside and cuttingly windy so that the wind chill is well below zero and it's whipping the snow all around so that it stings your face.
Grrr.

I am going to bundle them up and let them run outside for a bit this afternoon (notice I said them, not me!) while the sun's out, just to have been able to get out in it. We'll see how long they last.

In the meantime, while we've been holed up in the house, we decided to work on our Valentines today.
Got out the camera, snapped some pics, plugged it into the printer, grabbed the scissors and some suckers and wha-lah...




easy peasy
Valentine cards!!

Hehe... thanks Heather!
I tried to explain to the kids how I wanted to make these and how to hold their fists out. Savannah got the concept pretty well, but with Sawyer... well, most of his snaps turned out looking like he was trying to punch the recipient in the face! haha!!

This is such a fantastic idea. I saw them just the other day on some site. I'm impressed with yours though, maybe it is because the kiddos on the front are super cute!!! Good Job Heather!
