Guess what I found!

The abominable snowman... ...him or the kid off of A Christmas Story movie!!
I had to shop the thrift stores FOREVER to find enough winter coats, snowsuits, snow pants etc. for all the kids. I laugh every time I put this on Sophie...she can hardly move!!
Those beautiful mountains you can sort of see in the back there are the ones my mama and step dad live in and also the ones we will be hunting for our very first "real" Christmas tree tomorrow!! Thankfully it has been a bit warmer here. After about a week of below zero temperatures, the kids are happy to be able to go outside and play in the snow they have been eagerly waiting for. It is a terrible thing to see it out there, but not be able to go out and play in it!

I have been to Montana once and my husband has never been. I tell hime all the time it is one of the places I would love to live... or maybe just visit... I don't think I could handle that kind of cold.... brrrrrr! How can you NOT love a place that it is so close to the Heavens! It does seriously feel like you are walking in the clouds when you are there.


HA HA!!! We have a snow suit that each child has worn and none of them has enjoyed it one bit. They always seem to fall over and get stuck unable to return to the upright position! I laughed when I read this because it's about 50 degrees here and MUCH too cold to go outside! :)
