Walking In A Winter Wonderland

Day filled with fun in the snow! School was let out at 12:30 and it snowed pretty much for the following four hours. Some would call it a dusting but for Houston was a pretty good amount. It is the first time ever that it has snowed this early and the first time ever that it has snowed two consecutive years. As promised here are some pics!:)

Oldest & Littliest running around after taking Christmas Card pics. Yes we had a winner thankfully! Who knew that after last years card we would get a chance for another snow pic for the card!

Shortly after getting home from school.

Our "hood". Isn't it beautiful!? It all started melting around 5 ish and now is all frozen which is actually the biggest worry for around here. It is super cold! We spent the later half of the afternoon and evening over at our friends house. When I went to load up the mini to go home the door was frozen shut! It took like 10 tens for me to get it open.

Hope your day was a pleasant and joyful as ours! Tomorrow back to the same old same old. Need to finish up decorating and the outdoor lights. Pics coming next week!:)

And We have Snow!


Lots of fun being had! Will post picks later tonight after the excitement has worn off. Already on our first load of wet clothing. Has tapered off a bit but more on the way!

Quick Update

I just HAD to look one last time before getting off and well look at this model!! We are in the light blue and that means we could see 3-6 inches of the white stuff! And to think The Hubster laughed at me for running to WM to buy him some gloves! They even mentioned a possibility of "thundersnow"! Have ya ever heard of such a thing! Okay really heading to bed now....

It's Midnight


Yep, thats right I said midnight and here I sit posting!:) I am getting ready to head to the tub for I am covered in tree sap. The plan was to get our tree tomorrow but we now have gone from a winter watch to a winter warning though school has yet to be canceled or shortened so far. Hmmmm.
So yep that is the tree. Bad pic. Its from my phone. I do suggest though taking a pic so you can see where you need to adjust your lights. I will say I am rather sad. We have had twinkling/chasing lights for 7 years and they died last year. So this year we have all solid and it honestly is driving me insane. I think tomorrow morning before the storm arrives I may head out and find some twinkling white lights.
The Hubster was rather impressed because we went to the local garden center whose sign said MOST Trees $35. We have never paid less than $80 for a tree. Well wouldn't know they were right! Most trees were $35. Of course the one that jumped out at me was uh hm...$170 but don't worry that was NOT the tree we brought home. Ours was only $45!! I think The Hubster was doing a lil' happy dance inside.
Well its REALLY late. Chat with ya'll tomorrow...or later today. Hope ya had a good one!

70%



Okay so that pic is teeny tiny but if ya look real close the rain has snow flurries in it!;) We went from 40% chance of rain to 70% chance of rain mixed with snow by mid day. Still skeptical but still exciting none the less!
I am beyond tired at this point!! I can not for the life of me get Littliest to stay asleep in his own bed at night. I even told him Santa would not come if he was in mommy and daddy's bed. To top it off Oldest was up as well.
Decorating is coming along. I will share pics next week once we get the tree up. Hopefully minor set back with the lights out doors. It was raining so I think we just tripped a circuit. All went dark. I am crossing my fingers that is all that it is!
Well gotta get Oldest off to school. Have a good one ya'll!

Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!

Edited Note: Shopping Washers & Dryers. Anybody have a set ya just love that is not overly expensive??? Both of our units have been repaired in the past and now our washer smells like mildew/mold and I can not get rid of it.

We knew it was going to happen. We knew we could not keep it from Oldest or Littliest. Oldest came home talking all about Friday and the weather. We know that it will most likely NOT even happen. And we know we will not hear the end of it either way. The boys are still talking about the great Cajun Blizzard we experienced last year while living in Baton Rouge! We had over 4 inches!! I am sure if it does it will be nothing like last year but it sure is a fun thing to anticipate with the holiday season upon us! I WILL be that 5 yr old waiting at the window just like I was last year!;)

... POSSIBLE WINTER WEATHER EVENT ON FRIDAY FOR SOUTHEAST TEXAS...

AN UPPER LEVEL DISTURBANCE IS EXPECTED TO MOVE ACROSS TEXAS AND INTO SOUTHEAST TEXAS ON FRIDAY. MUCH COLDER AIR WILL ALSO FILTER INTO THE REGION DURING THE DAY AS THIS DISTURBANCE MOVES OVER THE AREA. STRONG LIFT ASSOCIATED WITH THE DISTURBANCE WILL COMBINE WITH ENOUGH MOISTURE AND COLD AIR SO THAT WINTER PRECIPITATION WILL BE POSSIBLE ACROSS SOUTHEAST TEXAS DURING THE DAY FRIDAY. PRECIPITATION WILL POSSIBLY START AS RAIN BUT CHANGE TO SNOW DURING THE DAY AS TEMPERATURES FALL. THIS SCENARIO REMAINS RATHER UNCERTAIN SINCE THERE IS STILL SOME QUESTION AS TO WHEN THE DISTURBANCE MOVES OVER THE REGION AND HOW MUCH MOISTURE WILL BE AVAILABLE FOR WINTRY PRECIPITATION. FORECASTERS WILL CONTINUE TO MONITOR FORECAST DATA AND MAKE CHANGES AS NECESSARY. RESIDENTS OF SOUTHEAST TEXAS ARE ENCOURAGED TO MONITOR THE FORECAST AND LOOK FOR UPDATES CONCERNING THE WINTER WEATHER THREAT.

Busy Busy Busy

There have been lots of projects going on around here lately. Sunday I finally took everything down in the living room and made myself finish painting in there.

It took a lot longer than I had hoped.

In the end though it was well worth it! I will take a better pic in a few days. This is all I can show right now. I am going to redo the valances so I did not put those back up yet.

This craziness was inspired by Girly Stuff. You should head over there and check out here beautiful wreath! Lets just say I am having to scale way down after many attempts.

Here is a little peek at the rest of the maddness happening around here. I have bins everywhere and well to be honest I am not quite sure what to do with it all or if I even have enough. The Hubster thinks I am crazy for thinking I need more since I do not even know what to do with what we already have.
So there ya have it ya'll! Whats up around your house these days??
