We've lived in Oklahoma now for a little over 4 weeks and it took my kids all of 2 days to acclimate themselves to the cold weather. To say they love it is an understatement. You would never know by the look on their faces that it was below freezing outside. They spend every day after school playing outside even if it's 30 degrees with a 20 something windchill. It doesn't seem to phase them at all. They just keep adding layers......hats, scarves and gloves. They love it!!! As for me, I can't drink enough hot tea and I live in my ultra warm boots.
