humbug indeed


not for me, not today thank you.

we got our first snow of the season today, much more than they were forecasting. i can't begin to tell you how my heart leaps with joy when it snows. the hubs hates it as much as i love it, but snow makes me giddy inside. truly giddy. i called my brother to exlaim it was snowing...like he didn't know (we live in the same area). i texted my friend texas to tell her...even though i so do not text. of course it is about 70 degrees where she is.

the girl and i were out running errands when it started. squeee!!!

once everyone got home, the kids played in it for awhile; then the girl helped me with the christmas cards for a bit. we even watched the original (w/ george c. scott) christmas carol. ah...we might have to have hot chocolate later.

There was snow on the ground when I drove to the university this morning... it's not there anymore. Who knew you would have more snow than us?? xoxo

No snow here yet. But frigid out there right now.

I always get excited for the first snowfall. Then I'm done. I hope we don't get as much as last year...

I'm just waiting for it to snow here in Austin so I can do all my cards.

I had cards, they are in a box here somewhere. I obviously have some work to do here.
