One word comes to mind when I think of winter in Texas. Unpredictable. OK, that’s not entirely true, several other words have crossed my mind and lips lately, but I’d probably be better off not sharing those here. We can literally go from lounging by the pool one day to playing in the snow the next and that’s exactly what we did last week. Except we weren’t exactly playing for most of the week, we were stuck indoors because of ice that came down and stayed. My kids have missed 5 of their last 7 days of school, including today, and I’ve about had it. Luckily, warmer temps are on the way and they can’t get here fast enough as far as I’m concerned. This Southern chick was not made for winter!
We did get some half-way decent snow at the end of the week
from hell, so of course, I headed out with the kids and the camera. Jakob, as always, wanted nothing to do with freezing himself to death to play in the snow, so you’ll notice he’s absent from these. Smart kid, I tell ya.
No really, the water’s nice, come on in.
The grill hasn’t seen much action lately.
The snow was super powdery, so the kids had a hard time actually building anything. They mostly just threw big hand-fulls at each other.
I’m looking forward to seeing these candles glowing warm and pretty soon instead of sitting out there full of ice and snow.
Hope you’re staying warm and safe this week!
