The little pond is our backyard has been frozen for several days now... with ice thick enough that the kids can stand on it!
We have decided our outdoor runs are over (it's just too cold and windy and too dark by the time Philip gets home from work now), so we got a membership at the YMCA and are really enjoying working out inside! The kids like it too, because they get to go to the Kid Zone! =)
It's also time for Operation Christmas Child boxes. One of our kid's favorite Christmas traditions!
Packing up all the boxes

Caleb's birthday party is tomorrow. It was supposed to be at a farm... with a petting zoo, pony rides, a hay ride, face painting, etc... BUT it's going to be waaaay too cold, so instead, we will have a ton of people in our warm, cozy house, eating chili, hoping for snow in the afternoon!
