the snowy day

SEASONS, WINTER

We don’t get much snow here in central Texas; endless, hot summer days infested by mosquitos seem to be more our thing. So when giant, icy cotton balls fall from the sky, here, it is magical. That day was today. Our very own snowy day. And just like Peter (from the book), the kids crunched away, looking for footprints (or “animal tracks”), knocking at snow with sticks, and even having their own snowball fight. Even little Olive banged her chubby little hands on the door to get outside. The kids only lasted about an hour before their non-waterproofed winter-wear wore off, and they were forced to retreat inside with frozen toes and fingers. Still, they loved it.

  1. Your kids ARE beautifully and wonderfully named, I agree with Miss Mommy. And it will be wonderful to think upon this Snowy Day one day in mid-August.

  2. Great pictures, I’m glad you got some snow, although I am so very tired of the same. I am envious of Blythe’s boots…I need a pair! Hugs and kisses to all.

  3. Bethany- I am still smitten with all your name choices for the kids. They would fit in quite well here in Aberdeen! In case you have another boy, add Callum to the list (cal like California, them um)- it’s an awesome Scottish name. You probably knew that, tho. :)

  4. Too bad Christi didn’t know the snow was so close – she would have probably made the drive from Katy

  5. yay snow! everything in me was trying to be a responsible mom and not drag my 3 month old outside in the cold snow today…so, we watched from the inside. glad the kids got to play!
