Snow, snow, and how 'bout some more snow?
If you follow us on Instagram, you know that it's been SNOWING. I mean I've only posted like 9827 photos of the girls in snow, someone should seriously take my phone away. We have been having so much fun playing in the snow, eating the snow (the girls, not me), and enjoying cozy activities inside.
I was born in southern California and moved to Oregon when I was five years old. I grew up wishing that we could move back to California so that we could enjoy year round sunshine. As an adult, I am so appreciative of Oregon! We get to experience all four seasons and it really is so beautiful. I love that we're raising the girls here. While I wish winters were a wee bit shorter and I could go for a few less rainy days, I really am loving this snowy winter. I hope that we raise the girls to love their home and all of the seasons.
While we've been playing outside with pink noses and freezing fingers A LOT, we've also been spending so much cozy family time inside. We've baked our very favorite chocolate chip cookies twice (decorating sugar cookies is next on our list), watched countless Christmas movies, and played so many board games (candy land is our jam).
If you're looking for snow gear, these snow bibs that I bought for the girls are awesome (here is the boy version), and they're so reasonable! I am obsessed with this sweatshirt, if you're having a cold winter you need it too!! I also love this coat and these snow boots (for women)!
I cannot believe Christmas is in a week?! All of my Christmas shopping is done, everything is wrapped and waiting under the tree! I even have all of our stocking stuffers ready and waiting. A part of me can't wait for it to be Christmas so that the girls can open all of their gifts, but the other part of me feels like this year flew by WAY too fast. I think I will just be eternally mad at time for ticking away much too quickly.
Whatever your weather is like, I love you're enjoying it and spending lots of quality time with family! Merry almost Christmas!!
