Baby, It's Cold Outside!

With the sudden arctic blast, we have had to experiment with many different ways to keep Wade warm while travelling.
He has a heavy winter coat that is perfect if he is in the stroller or being carried. However, it is not the best option for him while in his car seat. The straps will not tighten at all around this huge coat.
He has several hooded sweaters that fit perfectly over an outfit and also fit well in the car seat. The downside to these is they are not heavy enough when he is out of the car seat.
So the option that has worked best for us this week while temperatures have been below freezing day and night is to layer his clothes, add a sweater and toboggan, and cover him with a heavy blanket. He actually seems to enjoy the snug fit he has in the car seat.
Lee has also had fun accessorizing this week. We had just gotten home from church in this picture, so he wasn't as bundled up as usual. For school, he has been wearing a toboggan, scarf, gloves, and his heavy winter coat. I giggle while picturing him undressing at school when he gets there.
Meanwhile, Wade just enjoys snuggling under his nice, warm blanket while someone warms the car and totes him where he needs to go.
We were already up and ready for church when the snow started falling. This is the scene we faced 2 1/2 hours later when we skidded home.
After our nerves were settled from travelling on the icy roads, we were thrilled to get home to this winter wonderland!
