Let it snow!

Yep! It's snowing here in Houston-can you believe it? I think people move here to get away from all that stuff, don't they? Well, it started out light this morning, turned heavy by lunchtime, and moved out by late afternoon. Since we don't see snow here as often as we used to in Oklahoma, my kids really liked seeing it again! (Not me, I could do without it, really). At noon, they piled on their scarves, gloves, and hats, and headed out to make some snowballs. Or....some snow boulders!

Pretty big, huh? Took 'em a while to roll it all up. Then, of course, there had to be a snowman. My 9 yo worked hard on this one. That snowman (or snow-woman?) color coordinates so well!

Here is a shot of our front yard, taken by my oldest. This was well after it had stopped, so I think some of it was starting to melt.

After everyone was done playing, they came in for a nice cup of hot chocolate-yum! Okay, enough cold, heavy jackets, and soggy shoes-I'm ready for those 70 degree days to come back! :-)

  2. What a beautiful home you all have. I'm with you, I could do w/o all the snow. Loved it as a kid, probably because I wasn't the one who did all the clean up after:)
