'Snowed In' in Texas

Guys & Gals, this is one for the record books.
I am 33 years old and I have never seen snow like this in Texas.
I have lived here my WHOLE life.
It is amazing and beautiful :)
Sorry, I'm sure you guys are gonna get tired of all the snow pics,
but I'm loving it and love blogging about all the memories we are making!

Snow fall last night was about 9 inches...the puppies legs were covered.

Hayden was mad!
His car was stuck, like many other cars in the area...teehee!

My angel!


I'm clearing a path for the kids.
Hayden had a really hard time walking around.
He would fall and then we'd pick him up.
Then two steps later he'd fall again.

Snow up to her knees!!!

Mr. snowman has random backyard toys for arms,
eyes are balls, and a smile made from my rosemary plant.
Oh, and Gary's cap. I'm surprised he took it off...he loves that camo ball cap

It was such a fun way to spend the day!!

I've fallen and I can't get up!

Almost nine inches and still falling as of 5pm Thursday night.
AND we got more snow during the night! Our total for the day was around 12 1/2 inches!

Simply Amazing :)

I will NEVER tire of your snow pics. No snow here in sunny Florida but it has been in the 30's this week which is just strange. OK. In the 30's while we are sleeping but that is just downright cold. These pics are adorable.

I know that is odd for Texas but normal for us here in Wisconsin. The difference is ours is here for 5 months out of the year. Yikes!
