Oh The Weather Outside Is Frightful

I couldn't convince my kids to play outside today. I got the most unusual response when I asked if they wanted to go out!

It sure is pretty outside. It looks peaceful.

But appearances can be deceiving. It's brutal out there!

Dylan's school had a 2 hour delay this morning. For half-day Kindergartners, the less than 2 hour school day seems pointless! We froze while waiting for the bus. The snow was swirling, and the wind was blowing in gusts! So I guess I can understand their strong response when I asked them if they wanted to play outside!

They were perfectly content to play Wii...

...and to watch a movie, snuggled up on the bed.

I was secretly relieved that I didn't have to go outside again! I'm fighting off a cold, and there is nothing in this house that I can take. I relied on good 'ole hot tea!

Although I had planned on shopping tonight, I'm going to skip it! I prefer to stay indoors tonight!!!

    It's cold for us here in FL today (was 40something this morning) & all I've wanted to do is stay inside!
