This is one for the records, we got snow twice in 2 years!

Okay, for all of you who live up North and are currently under feet of snow, I know this isn’t a big deal.  But for those of us down here in Texas, this is HUGE!

So huge I felt the need to videotape Batman playing in it and telling me in his very excited voice about it.  I am sparing you the video of the dog running in the snow and more excited observations.  But, I have grandparents that read this, and they NEED to see this.


I may be exaggerating a little.



Batman was my most eager snow participant.  Princess was outside briefly, but declared it “cold, cold, cold, cold,” and that’s all I heard from her before she disappeared back indoors next to the fire.


A girl after my own heart.  But, Batman provided quite the commentary for me.



This is their “soup.”  Really, it’s a plastic tub that they’ve been dumping rocks, dirt, random stuff in for the last year or so.  Sometimes it’s poison, sometimes they are going to feed it to the birds.  It all depends on the game for that day.


Batman told me it looks “yucky,” and we can’t eat it right now.


Good to know.  I wasn’t planning on it.



Mac thought the snow was awesome, and he looked so cute running around in it.  He did not disappear in the snow, like the dog in the story we read did.  But, Mac’s not white.


Or, so I was told.



Considering how infrequent snow is here I think I was downright restrained in my picture taking.


Unlike last year or the time we had “snow.”  No really if you look very VERY closely in the pictures with snow in quotations you can see snow.  Honest.

  1. If I were you I would be unrestrained, too. We don't often go out to play in the snow, so when we do, I take the camera…and we get snow a good amount throughout the year.


  2. My sister has been giving us reports from Sul Ross – students freezing, no coats, pipes broken, ice on the roads – hard to believe how much chaos a little white stuff can cause. But, I'm so glad your kids got to get out into it – every child should have a few snow memories 🙂

  3. Ha – I don't think I want to know the story behind MaryAnne's comment. 🙂
    Honestly, Ticia, you call this snow? Looks like a dusting of powdered sugar. We wouldn't bother to put on boots to play in that. Try 8 foot high snow banks and going in up to your hips every time you walk through the yard. 😉

    You know I'm just giving you a hard time. I'm glad the kids had fun in it!

  4. What a weird year – snow seems to be everywhere… except here, of course. It would be the end of days to see snow on the ground in Silicon Valley, and I'd rather not to see it happen – the driving would be horrendous. The photos are fun, and how interesting that kids reacted differently to snow.

  5. I heard that it has snowed in 49 of the 50 United States this season!!! So cool that your kids got to have a little fun with the snow. I bet they won't forget it. Princess is too cute!
