Just when we thought all of the weathermen were crazy for saying we were going to get more snow, it arrived! It just kept coming down! It had started as ice, but then a nice 2-3 inch blanket of snow covered the ground. It was so beautiful! I really loved taking photos of the beautiful snow!
The kids really enjoyed playing in the snow! I think if we lived somewhere with snow we could survive. We just need a lot better snow gear before that could ever happen!
Here is the front yard!
The ice in the gutter
The kids had a great time playing follow the leader. They ended up down by the creek (right by our house) and each jumped across it. Mhari was the leader ;).
Then the boys helped Clark across! It was so adorable to watch!
Then we all played in the amazing snow! It was so deep! The little slope down to the creek made a great sledding hill! Oh, and we had a good snow ball fight too! Talmage got me good. Then I got him before it was time to go in. :)
Clark throwing snow!
Here is Owen sliding down the hill.
Sandra, Grant, Clark
Jeff spent some time that night clearing off the driveway so the snow wouldn't refreeze into black ice. Sandra went out to help. Clark also wanted to help shovel the driveway. This is what Texans use for a snow shovel... the real deal :).
The day the cousins came to play they spent time and made up skits for us. This is a photo of the whirlpool one. They are so silly!
I'm glad we got to enjoy our winter, even if it was a little late this year. Plus, with it being a Texas winter it really didn't stay around for very long.
