The other day it warmed up to about 35 degrees. We were so overjoyed that the ice could actually melt, we went outside!!! We strapped on our snowboots, trekked through the slush on the Rock Island Trail, saw a few squirrels and a bunny, and watched the sunset. Our boogs didn't freeze at all!! We almost called it "warm out", but then we realized that it was still under forty, and felt like it was twenty-something. Hopefully it's a sign that winter won't last too much longer, and ice will stop building up on the inside of our windows.

We finished out the night by tromping through Petsmart in our boots looking at the chinchillas, and then went to Toys-R-Us to get a puzzle to pass the time. Hurray for winter!

This was not advertised in the apartment pamphlets, and this is our bedroom window. It's double-paned and supposedly energy efficient. I think the Saints were blessed to make it to Utah.

Negative Fifteen

That title right there - could be the name of a band. One that would go platinum in 3 days and make the Beatles look like karaoke night at Doc's Pizza Buffet. But it's not a band. It was the temperature when I had to go to work this morning. My boogers froze in about 4 seconds. Windchill made it feel like -30. The high today was supposed to be -2, but the highest I ever saw it get was -8. This is Fahrenheit people. The only bright side I can see is that it's so cold that the snow won't freeze together so it's actually light and fluffy, as opposed to the heavy, wet, icy snow we were getting.

More pics from the inside..

Hey! Here are a few more pics of our lil' one from the last ultrasound. My personal favorite? The one where she kinda looks like Skeletor from He-man. Also, apparently in the second-to-last one it's plain to see she's a girl, however, I'm not really sure how. Good thing we have doctors to read these things!
