Last week, when it was 70 degrees and sunny outside, Jack was sick so we stayed home.

This week, when it's 10 degrees and icy outside, Jack is well....and we've stayed home.

Bad planning, Jack. 
 Can you say, cabin fever?

Today it snowed to cover up all the ice, so after breakfast with Monk....

we bundled up with as many layers we could find and went to explore the snowy wonderland of the backyard! 

When we were about to freeze, we came in and stripped down our snowy clothes and indulged in the perfect winter lunch....grilled cheese and homemade tomato soup!

And last but not least, a little comparison.....
last year's February snow vs this year's February snow!
