They love the snow

The snowfall has been phenomenal this year. Any of you who know me, know I claim to be allergic to snow. I dispise being cold. I love sun. I love swimming. I love suntans and I even enjoy the sting of a sunburn. My hair no longer grows blonde and the winter brings out my true color. UGH! I enjoy frequent trips to the salon to bring out my wanted highlights. It's a necessity this time of the year.

My kids on the other hand LOVE the icy chill, the zip on a sled and the unstable thrill of their snowboards. During summer, I have to lock the door to our house so they can't get back inside. During the winter months....THEY WANT TO GO OUTSIDE!!! Woe is me as a responsible mother. Not wanting to participate in cold events. Unable to send the youngsters out on their own. sigh.

See their happy faces. It's the only thing that can warm me from my frostbitten nose to my unmoving toes. In my eyes, Punxsutawney Phil is a stupid groundhog and to J, L & K~a super hero. 4 more weeks to go...

I hate the snow too. I can't wait for it to end. I'm a bad mom though and confine my kids to the indoors. They wait for Mike to play in the snow with them.

Kris - I can't believe how fast your kids are growing up! They look like they are having fun in the snow!

Okay, until it's gone, let's live it up. Because whenever one season ends, we are always sad and wish it was here again. But maybe it's just the holidays that we are really missing.
