Snowpants

When I was young, my mother wore snowpants wherever we went.

At the time, I thought it was a little strange.

When I was older I thought it was even more strange.

But now, standing outside trying to herd 4 kids in the van,

buckling seatbelts,

tucking in coats,

fixing mittens,

running inside for forgotten items.

Yeah, I am thinking about snowpants.

Funny!
My snow pants story: A few days ago in Wal Mart, trying to remember which child needs new snowpants....decided they weren't needed yet anyways. The funny part? 4-8" in the next 24 hours.

I still have those snowpants from back in the days when I was always cold! Just so your readers know, I did NOT wear them to the grocery store or church! But they sure came in handy when pumping gas, etc.
Go for it, Julie...I am sure they have more stylish ones nowadays!

I am tempted to get some this year as well. Let me know if you see any you like that are reasonably priced. Last year the only ones I saw were the bib style and I don't really want/need that. I'm wondering if maybe the boys section of Fleet Farm might have something...

This is funny :) I was just thinking about maybe needing some smowpants this year too.
