Why I Tolerated the Train AND the Cold

Did I mention I don't actually like cold weather? Winter can be beautiful, but it's...you know...COLD. Today was about 1 degree. You know...COLD. I don't ski, but was convinced (begged and pleaded with) to go to Colorado. I keep asking why we didn't go to the beach. Apparently the boys can't snow ski in Florida. Bummer. 
I didn't leave the room the entire day. The wind chill was something like -175 (ok, actually -10 but might as well be -175 as much I like the cold). I looked at our lovely view from the comfort of the room with the nice warm fireplace and couldn't see the mountains from all the blowing snow. But I got more chainmaille done!
When the boys took a quick walk to get a missing ingredient for our dinner while I did the cooking, they got back and insisted we all go on a walk after dinner because the Christmas lights were still on and gorgeous. Grudgingly I bundled up. I am glad I did because it was so worth it.

The kids in front of a frozen pond that everyone BUT the kids were sliding around on. Their parents are too paranoid of frozen kidsicles to allow them on the pond:

Jenny-- I love that in the photo of the kids by the pond you can totally tell Chloe's smiling by her eyes. :) And we can't even see that adorable toothless grin! (By the way, Sam lost another tooth, too. We need a photo of Chloe and Sam smiling together!)Have fun and stay WARM!

Jenny what train are you talking about? Did you ride from Indy to Colorado? We're looking at doing that in a year or two, riding through the Rockies. Any info? Or am I thinking about a totally different train? (I am a regular reader at SF.)

Wendy~we took the California Zephyr (Amtrack) from Chicago to Denver. It's final destination is San Francisco (I think).


Hi Jennifer!I'm having a blogwarming party on my blog and one of the activities is a scavenger hunt to encourage my readers to visit links in my blogroll. Since your blog is one of my own regular reads, of course, you're in my blogroll. I'd like to invite you to participate in the scavenger hunt - it could bring some traffic and new readers to your site, as well. Full details are in a blog post I buried in my blog at: http://adventuresofpamandfrank.blogspot.com/2008/06/scavenger-hunt-invit...Thanks!-Pam HawkPS: You can delete this comment... I put it in an old post so you can find it but so it doesn't detract from your blog.
