I was cold all freaking weekend long...

I was chatting with SJ on instant messenger on Monday, and she was complaining about how it was 4 degrees outside. I was sitting smugly because it was like 68 degrees here. My problem? When it's 40 to 50 degrees outside, I am absolutely freezing. I am sure I would not survive living in Colorado like SJ.

Hence why I was cold all day on Saturday. First was our town's parade which my Daisy troop was marching in. Forget the fact they told us to line up at 9:30am for an 11:00am start (I was smart though and told everyone else to get there at 10:30am). And forget the fact we didn't actually start moving until 11:30am. It was probably in the 40s at the start of the parade. It did actually "warm up" by the time we were done at 12:30pm, and the girls did great. I had brought a wagon thinking someone would poop out on me, and no one did.

So we get home, and Ray and I convinced the girls to climb into our bed for a quick nap and to get under the covers to warm up. No, of course they didn't nap, but it sure felt good to get warm, because at 4:00pm we had tickets to a local park for their Holiday Express celebration. This particular park has a train, carousel and other fun stuff during the holidays. But yea, it was cold and we were there when it was getting dark. The girls had fun and we got to see Santa with virtually no wait and I got to take a picture with my camera.

Can one of my kids look like me?? Just one...


Too bad Audrey's face is covered by her vest...

Eventually Ray and I will end up in Florida. Where it's warm, or at least warmer than here. Not that here is cold, it's just anything below 70 is too cold for me. Yea, I realize I am a wuss. I like the heat.

Florida! No way. How about Arizona? :)

Regardless of how freaking cold it has been over the last several days, Colorado is wonderful (I think) almost all year round. I know, I know, ROLL YOUR EYES AT ME, but it's true. Just wait, you'll see what I'm talking about when you FINALLY get your butt out here to visit :)

I bet the parade you were in with the Girl Scouts reminded you of high school, didn't it! Love the pictures, the one of Audrey upside down is awesome - totally frame worthy in my opinion!

I think the girls are a nice mix of you and Ray. :)

but for us "northerners" it just doesn't seem like Christmas without a few shivers down the spine!

I am with you! Once it is below 70, I don't want to go out the door!

Oh, we are so alike. Tuesday, when it was freaking 45 degrees out, I thought I was going to die. Thank God it's back up to the low 70s today...but then it's going to be cold again on Sunday. Texas weather sucks.

Oh I hear you. It's below zero here (not just the wind chill) and I'm about to crawl out of my skin. Can I declare Winter over and Spring now upon us? I wish!
