Oregon gets snow! Who knew?

I was surprised by some very cold days and snow that stuck around for a while!

Here’s our front yard:

My girls insisted on going out to play as soon as it started accumulating even though we were caught a bit off guard in terms of cold weather gear.

I stayed in the warm house and occasionally popped outside to document my kids’ discomfort.

(Note Mackenzie’s shoes and Caitlyn’s lack of a coat!)

Actually, they had a ball and that picture was taken at the very last minute when they were frozen and heading in… and I insisted they go back for a photo. 🙂

I wasn’t kidding about the part where I hid in the warm house though. I really intensely dislike being cold.

My kids are made of tougher stuff.

In this picture they are “gathering the snow into a huge pile to jump in!” I think they’re still used to Ohio snow storms. 😉
