Holiday weather.

I swear the holiday season has been fabulous so far! It snowed this morning! I tried to take a picture with my phone - yes, my damn phone again, but it was the handiest thing around. It was so picture perfect looking out my front window with the snow falling behind my Christmas tree. It would have been better if I hadn't been in a robe, with a towel around my wet hair, holding a squirmy baby and shouting at Luke that he couldn't go outside until he put his shoes on, but whatever. Here's the picture I took, but sadly you can't really see the snowflakes that were falling outside. Damn.


It started when I was getting ready this morning and I looked out my window and noticed the that the rain was mixed with snow flakes. I literally ran into the kids' room and woke them up saying, "Guys! It's snowing outside! It's snowing outside! Do you want to see?" They hopped out of bed (and they never hop out of bed) and ran to the windows while they rubbed their eyes trying to adjust to the light. I told them they had to hurry because you really never know how long the snow will fall in Texas; it could just be for a few seconds. Evie was disappointed and said she was going back to bed. Luke insisted on putting on his coat and hat and going outside for approximately 30 seconds so that he could see the snow.

Damn! I love the holidays!
