November was unusually warm around here. I was enjoying the warmth so much, that when the cold finally came it has been a bit of a shock to my system!
Right now our overnight lows are in the low 20's, and during the day we make it to the mid 40's if we are lucky. It makes me shiver just to think about it! This is sweater weather for sure.
Just before noon today I went on a short walk with Jonah. You guessed it... we had to go see the construction equipment again! It was too cold to stay and watch for very long. Even Jonah told me, "Mommy, I'm cold."
As we walked home we noticed some cold crunchy leaves by the wayside. They caught my eye, so I snapped a photo.
I couldn't believe they still had frost on them even though it was almost noon!
The frosty leaves reminded me of the beautiful evergreen trees that we saw on our way home from Wyoming a few weeks ago. A light dusting of snow had fallen and it made everything look sparkly and beautiful.
Honey Daddy let me hop out of the car to snap a few quick photos. It seems that we brought the cold from Wyoming back home with us. We still don't have any snow, but the weather forecasters say that we will have five to six winter storms before Christmas. So snow is definitely in our future!
On a warmer note, after our walks I share some hot chocolate with the boys. I love warm, melty hot chocolate... especially mint. Nothing warms me up on the inside more than a nice mug of hot chocolate! I take that back... there are a few things that do more to give me a nice, warm fuzzy feeling on the inside. Here are two of them.
