Arctic Blast

"Arctic Blast". Now there's a term I just know that we're all waiting to hear from our local weather man...er...person. Unless you're from Minnesota, Wisconsin, Canada, or some other really cold place I'm not sure if you've ever truely appreciated what that term REALLY means, I know I didn't...until now. Let's see today we were treated to a lovely temperature of 8. Yup that's right single digits people! We've had single digits for the past week, with the occasional foray up to 10 and if we're lucky 12. Not so bad you say, well then just add in some seriously strong, even colder wind on top of those lovely numbers. Then what do you get? An icicle formerly known as Leah and tumble weed in your stair well. Still not so bad? Well then you're hardier then I am.

PS. Check this out.....
Boy or Girl you ask?
We know.
Do you?


  1. Hi Ben,
    I had so much fun looking at pictures. I especially loved seeing you!!!
    Love you to the moon and back,

    Grandma Kansas

  2. It's a picture of little EuProgeny! My guess is girl. Am I right? :)

  3. I vote for another boy. It's hard for me to tell from the ultrasound. It actually looks more like a girl, but I'd like to think that it's a boy. That's what I'm having, so I just assume that is what you're having too. Two boys each. What do you say? Congratulations, by the way. That's super exciting ... and that must mean that we're due right around the same time. Cool beans.

  4. It's a girl! Congrats! I'm so excited for you guys!

  5. Okay, two questions for ya. First of all, being a proud Canuck I work in Celsius when it comes to temperatures. Just how cold would a single digit be to you Yanks? Second of all, I am definently our of the family gossip loop (comes from living so far North I guess). When is aby due? Congratulations!
