So very cold here in Chicago . . . a simple 9 degrees today . . . my girls wanted to play outside in the snow . . . I bundled them up and out we went . . . my brother told me I was crazy . . . our dog loves the snow . . . and the girls love to throw snow at her . . . I stood and watched and took photos (and froze) . . . here is my self-portrait . . . shouting to the dog to get out of the neighbors yard . . . our very tall evergreens reflecting in my shades . . .
