Making the most of the winter...

Like many parts of the country, we've had record cold negative temps. 
 On Sunday, we had a heat wave of 18 degrees and we took a stroll in the woods behind our home.
The snow was deep and it was quite the workout, especially for Josie.

 We even managed to balance the camera on a tree branch to take a family photo.   Getting all four of us in the same photo, rarely happens. 
 More record cold temps are in the forecast for the rest of this week. Stay cozy.

March is nearly here!

Such a different world with all that snow you guys have been having, Not a flake of that white stuff here. (and sorta wish we had had some) Spring and March are right around the corner...

I love it that you guys do so much as a family. We lived out in the woods when I was a kid and I loved exploring in the Winter - tracks, berries, etc. It was so pretty. It snowed here just the teensiest bit this morning.

Brrrr....lovely but it looks cold. We are finally getting a little rain here, to bad you can't ship us some of that snow, we could really use it!

I love the family photo! It is beastly cold out there, so you too stay warm and cozy. Throw another log on the fire. :-)

Walking in the woods sounds like fun, but not sure about those chilly temperatures. We had flurries today, but it got up to a balmy 34!

Great photo! Good going on getting all 4 of you in. :)

Dear me! I don't think I could survive in -12 degrees!!
Good for you for getting a photo of all four of you- we probably haven't had a full family photo for at least a year!
Emma looks gorgeous in that last photo!

This weather is ridiculous! Glad you got to get out for a bit while it was balmy :) I keep thinking I should have booked a trip to Florida and I could be sitting on the beach right about now!
