{a balmy -39C}

This weekend was SO cold. Like so cold. Thankfully it has warmed up but lets just say Cruz walks are still not enjoyable and I can only imagine what I look like wearing Delainey in her snowsuit and then covered in a blanket and then in my layers cursing at Cruz to stop pulling.
 Abominable snowman mixed with Michelin man is what I am thinking.
On Friday Justin had to work even though it was his day off - darn work. :(
My cousin Amanda came for tea and a visit.
Justin froze his hiney off walking Cruz who couldn't care less about the cold. Thank you Justin times a billion.
Naps were had by everyone but myself. I wish I was a napper.
Justin got up with Miss D & Cruz both days so I could sleep in a little! Thank you again Justin!
We skyped with my Mom and Dad. And wished we too were in New Zealand.
Justin and Delainey got in lots of cuddles.
 This girl was a crazy one!
Justin made 3 kinds of beef jerky in the dehydrator and it made our house smell delicious! And they are so tasty.
We ran a couple errands and only whined about 17 times between the two of us about how cold it was.
Miss D tried the jolly jumper a couple times for the first time!
We made a headband/hair clip holder for Delainey. Good thing I am a old frame hoarder.
Before - mess of headbands:
 I painted the frame with paint we already had and then enlisted Justin's help and a little trip to Home Depot. We - meaning Justin - added little metal hooks at the bottom and 4 rows of wire.
I bought mini clothes pegs here. Project cost under $10. :)
Note: You will need a better adhesive hook than dollar store ones to hang it behind the door. Otherwise it will fall down 4 minutes after you proudly hang it up. I bought a 3M hook yesterday and it's been hanging strong since then.
The shelf looks way better now too! How cute is this piggy bank? It has a tutu!!
We were supposed to have family dinner for Troy's birthday on Sunday but Emerson, Nixon and Debbie are sick. Boo. So hopefully they are better for next weekend.
Did I mention is was freezing this weekend?! The end.

This weather can go away at any time! We took Harley to doggie day care on Friday because we knew it was way too cold for walks on the weekend. Fingers crossed we can finally take him for one tonight...he's getting crazy and annoying! Haha

How can the cold not bother Cruz? Some of my winter running outfits were pretty laughable!!
