A Midwesterner and a Texan settling into life in the mountains of East Tennessee with a whole passel of kids. And the chaos that ensues....

It snowed quite a bit last week. The little peeps thought they should check it out, you know, for about 10 minutes. When your kids ask to play in the snow, do you feel like whining when you consider the amount of time it takes to get them dressed to go out is inversely proportional to the amount of time they spend outside in the cold? They did have a good time, playing out there, in the snow, for about 10 minutes.....
I'm pretty sure that when I was a kid, once I was dressed for the snow, I stayed out for HOURS at a time. I think. It felt like it anyway. Probably because my parents locked the back door and wouldn't let us back in.
Hehehe, just kidding. They'd lock all the doors. :op
I thought about sneaking closer to get better pics, but then my slippered, coatless body decided against it.
Ah, to be young again and actually like snow. Well, that's not true. I do like snow. From the inner side of the window. For about a week.
