i know, i know...it's winter now, what can we do but stay at home where it's nice and cozy. there is lots, actually. you just need to be more creative. for instance, embrace the cold. get all layered up, fill those thermoses up with hot cocoa, meet a friend at the beach, for a hike, or at a park and go take pictures of ice, puddles, snow, or whatever weather you gotz going on where you live. it is awesome to breathe crisp cold air and get the kidlets outside for a bit because at the end of it...you get to come home, take a hot bath and cozy on up to take a look at the pictures you took and the memories you made. the framed images make for a cool prezzie to gift the friends you go with the following christmas, a birthday or to use in a photo calendar.
