The Battle Begins

During summer, I fight vainly to keep my girls' feet in socks and shoes. When winter arrives, I continue my useless nagging to wear socks and . . . warm boots, please. Also, a hat would be nice. Where are your mittens?

Coats are for sissies, Mom.

 Alaskan kids eat their snacks outside. In short sleeves.







Dinner last night: turkey sandwiches, soup

I always figure they'll put something on if they actually get cold. So far, that's been the case. I love your little one outside in short sleeves and all that snow!

LOL kids are amazing aren't they?! =] We are looking forward to our first snow! We have the best sledding hill on our property. =] At least that's what our neighbor said....lol
Happy Thanksgiving Kim and family!
Can't wait to see your decorated table this year. !=]

I guess it's all relative, right?

I will never forget when it was above freezing for the first time in months, and by that I mean it was 35 degrees. My son refused to wear a coat because apparently, "It's too warm for coats."

We raise them tough, don't we?

That is hilarious! You've got tough kids! Mine are wimps since they're growing up in So Cal. When they go on about how "it's freezing!" when it's 50 degrees out I tell them they haven't felt cold until they've been out in minus 40 (I grew up in Canada....). I came to you through SITS. Your pics of Alaska are really beautiful.
