Snow Much Fun!

In honor of the upcoming Olympic Winter Games, I wanted to offer my suggestion for a new Olympic event. I think I will call it the Quad Winter Challenge. It involves digging through piles of winter items to find 4 winter coats, 4 pairs of snow pants, 4 winter hats, 4 pairs of boots, and 4 pairs of mittens. The next part of the event involves wrangling 4 small children into their snow pants, coats, hats, mittens, and boots all the while dealing with impatience, frustration, and the overall feeling of being hot. Matt definitely takes the gold in this event, and myself? A distant silver…

Once we conquered the getting ready part, we had a great time outside. If Allie could talk I think she would tell you that she had an okay time. It is hard to be a baby with tiny legs and many layers of puffy outwear.DSC_0340DSC_0341DSC_0342


Nobody is cuter in a winter hat than Eli!

Cara headed right for the playground!



Just like the groundhog, Cara’s shadow was clearly seen!

Poor Allie looked like this most of the time!
