Wind Burn

I was never really into playing in the snow, even when I was a kid. The best part of the whole deal was going back inside and having tomato soup with grilled cheese and hot chocolate. Therefore, I've never really felt the need to play outside when the temperature drops below 40 degrees.

However, lately I've been trying to change my lifestyle and mindset and decided a few minutes outside in the FREEZING cold wouldn't kill us, or probably even maim us temporarily. We lasted about 30 minutes, long enough to make footprints in the snow, "skate" on the ice, kick the ball around a few times and take some rides on the outside toys that work much better when there's no snow on the ground.

After all that exercise we'd worked up an appetite and we had to make some heart cookies for Valentine's day. We bought the sprinkles a week ago and finally got to use them. Arwyn enjoyed the dough just as much as the cookies, just like her mama.

I am really sick of the cold weather. Seriously. But Arwyn looks adorable in her winter wear so all is forgiven! LOL

Tomato soup and hot the same time? Somehow those tastes don't go together in my mouth...
