...was winter always this mild when I was growing up? After all, it's been 11 years since I have been in Texas for a winter. I remember having coats when I was growing up and I remember it was always windy... but was it ever really that cold? I can't remember. But regardless of my lack of memory, this winter has been EXCELLENT. I feel like we have been in Fall weather for 4 months, I love Fall! In fact, I have only pulled out my coat to wear ONCE, and it was last night! And it was not even one of my heavy coats, it was just a jacket. I LOVE not having to bundle the kids up every time we go some where and wrestling with their coats when buckling them into the car seats. I LOVE that I don't have to run, literally, into the grocery store with all 3 kids just so we don't go into hypothermia mode. I LOVE not getting wet from all the ice and snow outside. And most of all, I LOVE that the kids have been able to play out side all winter long!!!
The boys LOVE their new swing set, Cohen is always telling me, "Thanks for this park Mom!".
There was this one lady last month that I over heard saying, "The wind out side is just cutting right through you, I don't know if I can even finish my Christmas shopping because its been so cold!". I laughed....out loud. I thought, lady, you don't know what cold is. And once I got out to my car, I looked at the temperature, it was 54...at 8 pm... and there was a light breeze!!! Justin heard someone say something similar a few days later. I just have to laugh at all these people that think that 50 is cold! We still have yet to drop down below freezing during the day. I LOVE TEXAS WEATHER!!!! I should not speak too loud though, I'm sure once I get used to it, I will be freezing next winter, but I have my doubts :)
