Holy Weather Change Batman!!

Tuesday here in Houston it was 75 degrees and humid. Wednesday? Wednesday it snowed for the first time in, oh, a decade! We were sent home early from work, and later that night I could hear all the neighbors outside. The kids were playing and the adults were just amazed. I'm sure the yankees are laughing right about now.

And look, the snow actually stuck to the ground!

He kept eating it. He said it tasted like "cold icee cubes."

Our snowman. We made his eyes out of skittles and his nose was a toothpick because us southern folks aren't equipped for snowman construction like you northerners.

Making snowballs together....

Everyone seems to be in a good mood today. It's amazing what a little snow in Texas can do!

PS - There were about 100 wrecks on the freeways this morning. No big surprise there.

Snow!? In Texas? That's crazy talk! I know what you mean about Southerners and snow - we just get into trouble.

BTW, your son's eyes are so pretty! Love the snowman too. :)

That snowman is like 3" tall!! Your adorable son looks like a giant next to it, haha!! Does the snowman see your son checking out his eyes? Thinking "I want me some skittles!!"

Thanks for stopping by, keep in touch!

Snow? I'm sorry, I don't know the meaning of that word. 50 degrees is freezing for me here in So. Cal. But I want to make a snowman with eyes made of Skittles and a nose made of a toothpick!
