Baby It's Cold Outside


Ok, it's not cold..... it's freakin' freezing. We are currently under a blizzard warning and wind chill warning. The temp is -6 degrees and the wind chill is -47. Yeah you read that right, it feels like it is 47 degrees below zero. I went outside to try to move our car that is stuck in the snow once the parking lot was cleared only to find that the battery is about dead. It was plugged in, but into the wrong outlet. So I got it plugged into ours and came inside and waited for my face to thaw. I am SO over winter.

I made some cut-out cookies yesterday. I used my Grandma H's recipe, it's my favorite cut-out cookie recipe. We had planned to take some to my brother-in-law's house today but couldn't make it over there since there our car got stuck early this morning.

It has been a pretty quite weekend overall. I have four and a half days of school this week then Christmas break begins! Sixteen glorious days to do with as I please. Can't wait! Hope ya all have a great week!

I saw on the news how bad the weather was up there. Burr! I hate to tell you it was in the 70's here today!

I love your cookies. They are so cute. I just can't make those, I have tried. Mine look really, really bad. :)

Hope you are braving the cold. I know I am trying. I do agree I am so over winter.

We aren't having the blizzard conditions here that you are, but we did get snow today and it is VERY COLD. It is -2° right now, but I don't think we have the windchill like you do. Hope your last days of school this week go well! :)

It's frickin freezing here too. I personally love it! Getting bundled up or just staying inside because it's too cold - it's all part of the holiday season!

I love those trees! Are you willing to share the recipe? If not I'll take a few of your cookies instead. ;) I wish you could have been with us to bake. It would have been a blast to hang with you in person. We made chocolate covered pretzels, peanut brittle, sugar cookies and chocolate drops. YUMMY!

I can't even imagine. It was 80 here today. I would like for it to be colder though for the holidays but no less than 60 degrees!
