SNOW!!! Finally!!!!!

Hallelujah-it finally came! Snow!(not a whole lot, but enough to make us Texans happy!) The girls were in heaven! Its crazy how just Saturday we were in the 70's and today we are below freezing and getting our first snow of the season-in March! Crazy Texas weather! Wow, I'm using a lot of exclamation points in this post! I just did it again. See, thats how excited I am:) We were all so happy. You'd have thought we'd never seen snow in our lives. I know all you northerners out there (I'm talking to you, Kim & Erica) are probably sick of this white stuff already, but not us Texans. We have been snow deprived this year. It was so fun to watch the girls' youthful excitement as they ran around the yard tonight, trying to catch snowflakes with their hands and tongues. It was such a fun night. I hope it keeps coming and that we wake up with a yard blanketed in white. We'll see....enjoy the pics and video of our belated winter wonderland.
Yum!

I caught some snowflakes Dad!
Ella wimped out after 10 minutes, "I'm coooold!"Not Aubrey though. She wanted to stay outside forever!
Video of the excitement...

I'm jealous!!! We got some snow, too, but not like you did. It was very short-lived and very light. Funny, I did think of driving up there and staying with you guys tonight; I knew you guys would have a better chance of getting the good stuff. I would've have used a "sick" day at work tomorrow and called in. Ahhh, what could have been...

That is wonderful that you enjoyed the snow so much. I will take your 70 degree weather and you may keep the snow.
