Getting Ready for the Cold

Originally, when we moved into my parents basement, we thought it was only going to be for the summer. So, we didn't mark any of the boxes we packed and only brought summer clothes. Well, when we decided we were going to stay here and live in their basement a little longer, we knew we would have to go to the storage unit and find some stuff. I, for one, was not excited about this endeavor. I had no idea where anything was and it was stuffed in there pretty tight.
Matt had a morning off because some friends were coming from out of town, and we went to the storage unit. We found the clothes we needed and all the ones that we don't need anymore. I spent the rest of the day sorting through every piece of clothing my children have ever had and ended up taking it to the local consignment store. I made some money (Yippie) and we also got all of our winter coats, hats, etc. so, we wouldn't have to go through the boxes again. The girls were pretty excited about all the wintery stuff and decided to try it on.
I didn't realize until later that Ry had on her Santa pajamas.

Wow, what a task! They look like they are having a blast though! Serrin loves to dress up in hats and gloves all year round! Even if she is sweating like a stuck pig!!
