Toddler Tuesday: The Winter Fun List

We had our first really cold day here last week. My kids begged to go outside so we got wrapped up in winter gear and did just that.  After about 5 minutes my son chimed in and said “Yeah, I think it’s TOO COLD right now, maybe we can go in and come out later.”
