It's been colder the past several weeks than what seems normal for our area. While I'm really glad to have an actual COLD winter (though I know it's nothing compared to out west or up north!), it does mean more inside time for all of us. One day the girls decided to bring me the hairbows out of the drawer in the bathroom. One at a time, they would bring me another bow to put in their hair. When the bows had all been placed upon their heads, I took their picture. :)
With the cold weather we finally got some real snow! It started snowing late in the evening and was likely to stop before the girls woke up the next morning. Susannah really wanted to go out in it, which meant Sylvia then wanted to as well. Though the temperatures were in the low 20s I decided since they wanted to, why not?? I bundled them up and sent them outside to romp for a few minutes while Daniel was getting a load of firewood. I knew they wouldn't be out long but that they would really have fun. They were outside for maybe 15 minutes at the most but came in pretty excited to have been outside. Since the snow was just a few inches deep, it was easy enough for them to get around by themselves. Over the next few days I repeated the process (in the daytime, though) and they enjoyed it.
