Cold Weekend

This weekend we spent most of our time trying to stay warm! The temps stayed in the single digits for the high and around 15 below 0 at night. We got out Saturday and walked with a new friend to the 5th Avenue Mall. Walked around inside the warm mall and just checked out the stores. After leaving the mall, we walked over to the Town Square near the Performing Arts Center to check out the ice sculptures. We took several hurried photos as the wind was blowing and it had gotten bitterly cold. Some of the sculptures are very detailed and elaborate. Some are real works of art.
This one is called "She's So Sweet" and has a little lady figure on top of an ice cream sundae. Interesting. Saturday night our friend, Christine, came to visit us. We just chatted and drank tea while catching up on all the latest.

Sunday, SBFs Mindy and Paul, brought us a dresser for our bedroom. This is a huge improvement over the cardboard boxes we'd been using. When they came over around 1, the temperature was still -11!! We went shopping and then hung out at their home for awhile. Mindy made some scrumptious sloppy joes and delicious cake. We played the Wii and tried to work off some of those calories. We are definitely out of practice at bowling but I still rule the tennis court! Tonight, I didn't even break anything!
