My part of Texas isn't exactly known for SEVERE WINTER WEATHER.
But somebody should tell that to my toes because they are so cold! We recently spent 4 days in a row below freezing last week and that's some kind of record around here.
And before you make fun of my not-so-cold-weather *cough-yes, I'm talking to Northerners here* it's scientifically proven (maybe) that since Texas bodies are acclimatised to warmer weather, when it gets colder here, we feel it just like when it gets (very) cold up north. So there. But don't quote me on that because I sorta made it up.
But let's just say it was too cold to play outside, so we did some fun indoor stuff, like BUILD A GIANT FORT WITH BUNGEE CORDS. Because that's how my hubby learned it in Fort Building School.
This was a serious structure that encompassed our entire stairwell.
And all the spare sheets/blankets in the house:
Why, yes, THAT WOULD BE ROPE & BUNGEE (we don't mess around):
This was the biggest and most sturdy fort ever constructed in my home. (I'm so proud). We left it up for days. My kids read books by themselves and to their little sister, ate lunch, played spy games and SLEPT in this home-0f-sheets.
