Ho,Ho, Ho Houston Has Snow!!

You wouldn't think that two kids (yes, Jed and I) from Utah would get so excited about a little snow. But I must say, I felt like a kid again. I haven't been this excited for a very long time. We bundled up Elle and Z (this was his FIRST experience with snow) and took them outside to run around in the beautiful white frozen winterland. I just kept saying, "This just doesn't happen. This is so Awesome!" The last time it snowed here was Christmas Eve 2004 and we weren't living here yet. So I guess this unusual event does occur, but rarely. We stayed out until midnight building snowmen--one in the front and one in the back.
This morning the snow was still on the ground and on the roof tops, but as the day warmed up it slowly vanished. But we enjoyed it while it lasted. This has offically put the whole family in the Christmas mood. Oh, Mark we did turn on the heater!

I'm so happy that you guys got snow! I love the snowman, he is very cute. I wish I was there with you, I remember how fun it is to go frolicking in the snow with you guys. I can hear the laughter already.
