Baby, it's cold outside....

And we are ready for it!! Coats, mittens, hats, boots, and scarfs all rounded up and washed. Wood is being split and loaded into our wood shed and fires are already being lit! But am I really ready for the cold Wisconsin winter? NO....
But I am thankful to those in my family who work to ensure our winters are warm and comfortable!

The kids love helping the guys unload the trailer. And they do it cheerfully! (Most of the time) The trick though is to gather the wood before it gets cold, otherwise there isn't much excitement in unloading!

Thanks daddy for all your hard work.

I'm thankful too that daddy takes pity on his poor wife who loathes going growing shopping. But more so in the winter so another part of his winter preparations is to see to it that both our freezers are full, and our pantry. In doing this it makes his life easier too because if we need something or run out of something he can stop by the store on his way home from work since he is in town anyway and pick up a couple items rather than doing an all out grocery run. Which is never fun!!

Hooray for pantries and winter preparations! I love having food and house stuff stored so we can shop in the pantry and basement.

Nice picture of your stock, I love having mine around. Last year, before the baby my girls were complaining about how much toilet paper we had. I found a great deal and bought a whole bunch! They said we will never go through that much- I said it will be gone before he is 1, probably by the time he is 6 months. It was gone when he was 7 months!
