All "winter" long, Everett has been eagerly awaiting the appearance of the "snow mountains" at the mall--you know, the ones the plows leave behind in the parking lot. Every time we had a snowfall, we'd go check to see if there were any snow mountains. Well winter finally hit around here.
We took our first opportunity to go visit the snow mountains. We were a little crazy because it was right around 0 degrees that day. But we bundled everyone up really well and headed on over. I spent most of the brief outing in the van. Yes, I'm a wimp. But I took care of the girls as they came back in one by one. Maddie just LOVED it. She could hardly move, but was having riots. Everett had a blast too. Cary always teases people about not growing up in Canada when it gets cold, but the truth is, he hates the cold too.

Last week we had a 40+ degree day, with a good bit of snow still on the ground. My mom went out with the kids and they made a snowman together. (Mom ended up even taking off her light jacket.)
