Since we agree with our good friend Shelley in Atlanta that snow in the South is considered a "bloggable" event, we thought that receiving snowfall twice in one week was definitely blog-worthy! And would you believe that it was in the 70s here yesterday? That's Texas for ya. Today around noon, the Dallas-Fort Worth area began to receive a wintery mix of rain, sleet, and ice. Then around 2 p.m., the big flakes (or as we say down here, the BIG OLE FLAKES) began to really fall. This was great fun for the kids and quite a community event for our neighborhood! It was funny to see parents outside throwing snowballs with their kids, everybody taking pictures, and no one with proper snowsuits on, thoroughly enjoying this once-a-year event, if that.
Here is Sarah showing us her big snow ball.
I love this picture. John pointed out that I was taking pictures of them from the window and the kids started running towards me.
