Only in Texas

Mere days ago you could go outside in shorts without giving it a 2nd thought and yet tonight it is snowing... what is up with that? Don't get me wrong, I love it. I'll be the first to say that Texas gets entirely too hot and I wish our winters were more, well like a winter. I can't remember the last Christmas that was actually cold enough you needed a jacket and you could probably count the number of days in the winter that require you to actually deice your windows on one hand! I like the cold. I like the snow. I like when it's blustery and you have to wear a sweater, drink hot chocolate, and curl up under the blanket to snuggle. I would take winter over summer any day! It just blows my mind that one day your sweatin' it up outside and the next day your looking at snow flurries! C-R-A-Z-Y!

Chase has loved it. Last year it actually snowed in March on his birthday, but I don't think he really remembers it. Tonight we went outside in our coats, hats, and mittens to jump around and play. Chase even threw a snowball (albeit a very tiny snowball) at Daddy in a Snowball Fight! We'll just say Chase won. Too bad this doesn't happen more often, I have a feeling we could get very used to it (although I'm sure those of you who do get it more often are shaking your heads at me right now)!

I know it's hard to see, but those little white spots are snow! Click on the pics to see them bigger! Chase was so excited!!!

This is actually ice and snow, but it still shows you how cold it is!

As for my strep, I am feeling so much better! I can swallow and drink again... yeah!!! My left ear/throat area are still hurting, but the right side is well on the road to recovery. It feels so good!!! Both of my guys are holding steady, so I'm hoping they are good! We have my niece's first ballet recital and 4th birthday party this weekend and we certainly won't be missing that!

Have a fantastic evening, we'll be snuggling and enjoying the winter evening!

**I am grateful for
1) the snow
2) everyone is home safe and sound, those icy roads can be scary
3) snugglin'
4) antibiotics... soooo much better
5) all the well wishes that were sent my way, thanks!
