It's been so cold here! Actually, the Twin Cities just ranked #1 in Cities that were allowed to complain about the cold. School was shut down Monday and Tuesday (great for us because then daddy can stay home) but if you want to do anything outside you are out of luck. Thankfully, we've had a heat wave today! 30 degrees ABOVE zero! On Monday it was 30 degrees BELOW zero! We took advantage of this day by spending some time outside as a family, sledding and hanging out in the snow. You may notice a new furry pet in our family... Say hello to Sprinkles our Shih tzu puppy!
