Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow!!!

















Well, this post is late (naturally), but SNOW it DID last Friday!!! And not just a barely noticeable flurry! Big, beautiful flakes and not just for an hour or so, but off and on all day. School was closed at 1pm and the kids had a ball in the snow. Makes for a memorable Christmas! I even took Parker out for pictures although he thought it was a bit too wet :)


Snow in Texas is rare..yesterday we were back to 77 degrees, rainy and humid, but the weather over the weekend was COLD (at least by Texas standards)! The snow reminded me of some of my favorite memories. As a child I lived in Boston, Alaska, and Wisconsin where there is no shortage of snow. The kids made a snowman and threw snowballs even if they were more like ice. I was amazed at how something so simple could excite all of us and even the entire city. A simple gift from our loving God!


Blessings to all!

  1. Just found your blog. What a cutie that boy of yours is, will be following his progress before surgery to see how he is doing.

    Please check out our website Down's Heart Group www.dhg.org.uk and my personal blog http://dhgorguk.blogspot.com for info related to Down Syndrome and heart problems.

  2. What a cute boy. Children are only infants for such a short time - but with our son with Down syndrome, we felt very lucky because it seemed like we go a few extra weeks.

    God bless with the surgery.

    Life with a child who has Down syndrome is the best.

    6 months after Josh was born with Down syndrome, I attended my first parent group. I was touched by the struggle people were having with “why?” I went to bed with a heavy heart and awoke with this story. I hope you enjoy it.
