Donald, you have some interesting variegated seedlings there.  Why don’t you try to cover them with something to keep them alive through the winter.  I put a row cover over delicate seedlings.  I use a seed blanket the Home Depot sells and hold it up with wire hoops.  Weigh the edges down with logs, rocks etc.  I think you have plenty of those.

This one is showing signs of growing.  I'm not sure it's clear enough to
see, but the outer fan leaves show no variegation at all.  The next two
leaves show a tiny bit, but the new central leaves are heavily variegated.
They don't start out from the seeds as variegated; it shows up when they
begin to grow.  This one has probably waited too late to begin growing even
if it continues to try and probably won't survive the winter.  There are
several more seedlings that aren't growing that I think may also show
variegation if they were to grow but they haven't grown enough to be sure of
