Aaron took this picture of the girls a few days ago. They were going to play outside after Maisie was done with school. As you can see, they're both ready for snow... hats, snowpants, boots, and mittens all ready to go! Unfortunately, Mother Nature's not cooperating. I don't know where they found that sad little patch of snow, but it's almost certainly gone by now- it's been in the 40s the last few days.
I'm too much a life-long Minnesotan to enjoy this. Sure, it's nice not to have to worry about snow emergencies and sub-zero temps, but 40s? In January?? It's just not right. If I wanted a rainy, brown winter, I'd move to Portland. As it is, we haven't been able to go sledding once, and the only ice skating we've done was indoors. Outrageous!
Aaron had a dentist appointment this morning (no cavities! Good job honey!). Our dentist's office is right across the street from my office, so I got to hang out with Ella while he was at his appointment. We went to the Barnes & Noble for a snack.
It was a really nice break from my workday... I wish I could meet up with her for a coffee every day!
