So, where have we been? We've been getting dressed for the storm. It took us 12 days. We had to wear a lot of clothes to stand outside and look at the snow.

For all of the 10 minutes we did it.

Love winter. Love it.

He is gorgeous. Love the hat!! While reading this entry, I had a very old memory. I must have been about 4 years old, I remember Gram getting all of us all bundled up to go play in the snow. Hats. Sweaters. Coats. Scarves. Socks. Mittens. Snow Pants. And boots. Boots that were old-fashioned rubber nightmares that took forever to put on our feet. We wore our shoes under them, so they were hard to put on. "PUSH your foot in, honey" was what every mother said, repeatedly. Or some variation of that. I got ready last, and after a marathon foot-pushing session, snow pants and jacket on, mittens on my hands, hat on my head, scarf wrapped around, I told my mom I had to go to the bathroom. After saying that I remember wondering why she was just standing there for so long with her eyes closed, taking deep breaths.

Even with these new-fangled boots, I still find myself standing there taking deep breats after Sam tells me he needs to pee...

So cute! Looks like he was having fun!

I usually don't look forward to the kids growing up. But I do when it comes to this getting ready for the snow business.

Tell me again why we live in Chicago???!!!!
