Wordful Wednesday - Brrrrrr, It's Cold Out Here!!!

Today is my first day-off.... the first of many!! Already, I have gotten the house picked up, some laundry in, dishwasher on and am working on the rest of my "list of things I want to get done before the kids get home". Oh and of course I will have more time to blog and "visit" your blogs...... that's very important, right.... he-he!!! :)
Of course a Wednesday day-off works out perfectly for my Wordful Wednesday post....lots of time to write lots of words!!
and
These pictures were taken last night.... Joseph and Angie would stay outside all day/night long if I let them. And luckily, are driveway goes around to the back of the house, so the garage is in the back; meaning that they can play outside and get stuff from the garage and I am still able to keep an eye on them and not worry about them running off down the street or somebody snatching them up!!
Anyway, we are having another "cold snap" here in sunny Florida.....so our high temperature is about 55 degrees and the lows are in the 30's!! Now, I know that there are some of you out there who think that is warm compared to your frigid temps; but for me, I.AM.FREEZING. I bundle myself up when it's 70.... I'm always cold!!!
I had to go out last week and buy the kids hats and gloves because we knew it was going to be this cold.....and of course it is fun for them to get bundled up and play, play, play!!! However, for me-- a bit of a pain to get 4 kids (well, just the 2 little ones, as the big kids take care of themselves) in hats and gloves and then jackets and then buckled in the car..... and then, have to do it again before they get out of the car.... I think I'll stick with the warmer temps.... geez, we are in Florida!!
How do you cold-weather families do it all the time?? Do your kids keep the hats, gloves and coats on while in the car....? Or have to repeat the process every time you go in or out of anywhere???
Make sure to go see Angie at Seven Clown Circus and read everybody's Wordful Wednesdays!!

Cute pic! My kids look like that every morning from late September to early April!
I have 4 to get bundled up and it usually takes an extra 10 minutes of our morning routine. That's if everyone has all of their stuff. This rarely happens, as someone is always missing a glove or a hat!

I know what you mean...I am so cold too and tonight is getting colder! I also got the kids hats and gloves because they ride their bikes to school.

My kids always stip it all off in the car too and it drives me crazy. I am with you on the cold. We got about the same temps here and I've been freezing.

Love the pics they look so cute! It's 20 here right now and it was 10 when we left for school. We keep our jackets and hats on if we are going short distances like to school or the store but if we are going to be in the car for a while we take them off and truthfully unless they are going outside to play I dont bother with gloves they are a HUGE PIA. I hope you survive your "cold snap".

Glad you are getting things done around the house!!

I can't keep my kids bundled up (and it's still winter here -- but if the sun is shining it must be warm, right?)
