The upside of -37 degree weather

Yesterday was a whopping 8 degrees.  And let me tell you...it was nice!  
Balmy! (as Jo would say)
Didn't even bother with my hat and gloves for most of the day
And we were out and about (were we ever)!
One of those days where you're gone from about 9am to 5pm - it went something like this:
Preschool
Gymnastics
Lunch with Daddy
Target
Gym
Grocery store
(yes that really can fill up your entire day)

And as I sit here and blog it's 2 degrees - I know because Noah checks the weather constantly
(I won't let him go sledding if it's below zero)
And it's sunny
And I'm happy : )

I may be a little obsessed with the weather - but I don't want you to get the wrong impression.
I still love Rochester, MN
I still wouldn't want to be anywhere else
I DO wish I could heat my house a little more...but I'm dealing

Everyday is an adventure

But in case you don't find the weather here as fascinating as I do I decided to drum up some random pictures for this post

Enjoy

For Grandma
Noah loves it, wears it all the time

Noah tried his hand at shoveling one night - and discovered it's harder than it looks
(hello, why do you think I never do it?)


Noah's favorite computer game - Kid Pix
(thanks Grandma!)

and last but not least...
belly dancing.
or something.

Your blog is so entertaining! I love reading it. Keep up the weather reports!

I love the belly dancing, your kids are too cute. The amazingly cold weather probably keeps all the weirdos away from Rochester making it such a nice place to live ;) Your weather reports are awesome, maybe you can ask Santa for an increase in the thermostat temperature for Christmas! :)

Wow, it sounds COLD there!! I love the picture of Noah and Alex "belly dancing." They crack me up! It really makes me want Jay to have a baby sister. Unfortunately now we'll have to wait until Mike gets back to try, lame. So one of these days we're actually going to see you guys again. Wouldn't that be great?
