Advent Calendar 2017: 12 - What we're wearing

It's cold out there!  We love to go out and play but sometimes getting dressed and out the door takes all day.  Here's why!  And this doesn't touch on getting the stroller packed and down the stairs.  Reflex is the reflective material that goes on EVERYTHING.  It's good to keep the kids visible in the dark.  This outfit is required for going almost anywhere but straight from inside to car to inside.  And then I see some girls wearing short skirts with just tights.  I just don't get it.  And if a kid is not wearing a hat, every grandmother in Stockholm will descend on you to warn of your child's impending fatal pneumonia.  Even if the hat has JUST been tossed off by the child in question.  But apparently short skirts and tights are just fine?

I'm loving all the wool.  Really nothing works better and I'm finally getting to use the many I've collected over the years.  Thank God I have the hand-wash setting on the Grov Washer to keep them clean!  What I haven't figured out is how to look like a fashionable Stockholmer in all these layers.  It's a little colder in our neighborhood than in town, but not warm enough to wear regular shoes.  It's me and the old ladies wearing "sensible" snow shoes!  But I'm warm and always prepared.  Ever the good Boy Scout!  Ready for adventure!
