In Yooperland!

Well, we made it. What a long trip-such an understatement! The girls did wonderfully- I could hardly believe it. I credit that to them being separated the whole time. By the time we got to Missouri we hit colder weather and snow. However, we didn't have any rain or snow while traveling. Now we are in Iron Mountain, and the temps barely reach 20 degrees during the day, and this morning it was -2. Sunday after we arrived they had a big snow storm, er, over 5 inches of snow coming down very hard. Matt and I tried snow shoes...HA HA!!!! I'm sure we looked like fools out there, falling down all over the place with a gian German Shepherd jumping at us. (inlaws' dog) The girls are not enjoying the snow or cold weather. Today Alexa finally stayed out for longer than 10 minutes. I tell ya, I admire all you moms that live in places where you get lots of snow. By the time I get them all bundled up I am exhausted! Not to mention carrying them around outside while garbed up in all my snow gear too.

Anyways, it's very pretty and peaceful here. Hopefully I will get a chance to get some pictures uploaded soon. I don't think we would make very good yoopers, eh?

Yep, that'd be us...snow,snow,SNOW! Ugh...I'm done with the whole winter thing. It takes me about 30 minutes just to get my kids bundled up before we leave to go anywhere. So not fun! Glad you're enjoying yourself! =)
