I'm not 100% sure what to say about the cold. I'm trying to stay positive and it helps that Lucy loves it. She wakes up and the first thing she does is check the windows to see if there is snow. She also thinks it will be her birthday any day now because we told her it was during the snow season. January will be a long time to wait for that girl (she also thinks that she is getting a dog, so disappointment seems to be the tune of her third birthday). So it looks like bundling up is in order for the next several months although it seems to have doubled our already exaggerated time frame of getting out the door!
