This whole week has been freakin' freezing, Mr. Bigglesworth. Using celsius, the temp has been as cold as -16. (which in F=3 degrees) The last two mornings Ellie and I have walked Kate to kindy have been -10C. (14 F) Yikes!
So I have to laugh as I'm bundling the kids up. Kate reminds me of Randy, Ralphie's brother in A Christmas Story with her huge scarf and snowsuit. And it takes me almost as long to get on as it does Randy's mom in the movie! (Thanks for the scarf, Aunt Bonnie! I love it and K and I both love sharing it.)
Here's Ellie, struggling to get off the floor in all her gear. (Notice how I grab the camera, not her hands to help her up.)
And we're ready to go! Along with our neighbor, we're all set for a chilly, brisk walk (well, as brisk as a 2 yr old goes) to school. How very German of us, eh? I won't however, mention how a certain family member is missing all this freezing fun and is basking in 65+ degree weather at this point in time.... :)
Did you happen to notice that big box behind Ellie as she tried to get off the floor? Well, the commissary on post has stopped carrying boxed diapers (GREAT) so I ordered some online. Wal-Mart got them to me in less than two weeks (a miracle!) but it came in this HEW-GE box. What is filling the rest of the box, you ask?
Ellie, our dedicated mess-maker, is in mess-making heaven. The box must go!
