Texas snow

This post was inspired by Emily.

Here in Texas we don't get snow very often. It's a very sore subject with Brian. It almost bothers him enough to make him pack up our house and move back to Oklahoma. Well as you can imagine, the snow storm that hit Oklahoma over Christmas really twisted the dagger in his heart.

But wait. What did the weatherman say? Snow in Dallas? Yes! A very brief blizzard blew through on Christmas Eve and we were all excited.

Then it didn't stick. And Brian resumed cursing Texas under his breath.

But wait. As we woke up Christmas morning what did we see? It was a Christmas miracle! Uncle Naynay brought a load of snow from Tulsa on his way here!
And you better believe Brian made the most of it.

In the end, Silas got a little teaser of what other more fortunate children experienced this Christmas. But he really enjoyed the truck bed of snow. He actually got pretty upset when we told him it was time to go inside and open presents. As he put it, "Dada, can I pway in hhnow more pweeeeeeeeeese?" I can't imagine what he would do if he saw real snow on the ground.

  1. Oh I'm so glad to have inspired you! How cool that your brother literally brought the snow to you guys. And is Brian wearing shorts and a t-shirt? That guy must have an internal heater.

    And we will be sorely missing you both tomorrow night. Ringing in the new year just won't be the same without you!
