The blessing of a beautiful snow!

We were blessed today in Houston with a beautiful snowfall! It was simply amazing to see it coming down...slowly at times, fast at times, sometimes more like rain, sometimes big flakes. It was wonderful, and a blessing from God for all of us to experience. I was so happy for the children to get to see it and play in it just a bit.

I do have to admit that I'm glad we don't have snow all the time around here. It's wet and cold! But I think it was so fun to have it for a little while! The girls got out of school early, Chris came home from work early, we had a fire in the fireplace, "Rudolph" was on t.v. (dvr'd), Pumpkin Spice Latte, an afternoon nap....just a really great day!

Snowball fight time!

It may be small, but it's a snowman!

Snowy playtime!

Ellie loves this chair...we just have to keep reminding her not to stand in it! It was my mom's chair when SHE was a little girl....recovered a couple of times.

The beauty of a Houston snowfall!

Ellie was fun to watch as she took it all in!
