Snow Day!!

So yesterday was a fairly big day for Wacoans around town because it snowed all day...yes, the whole day. I think at the max we had about 3-6" in our yard, but the official tally was 3" at the airport. Still, it was fun and really rare for Waco to get that much snow. There were snowmen popping up everywhere!! If you're curious how many were on the Baylor campus, go here and read about it or view a fun slideshow.

Of course I couldn't resist another opportunity to put the $6 snowsuit to work, so BabyBear and I went out in it a few times. Needless to say, he was very confused and less than thrilled about it. I misplaced my ski gloves, and would have lasted longer in it myself if I had found them, but it was still fun nonetheless. My only regret is that I neglected to take a photograph of my child actually in the snow. *SIGH* I did get some video though and some other pictures of the backyard, which I will happily share with you.

So here we are when the snow had just started falling:



And here we are just before lunch time when there was a good amount on the ground:



And here are some photos of the backyard.









I loved the crunch of the snow under my feet and the quite stillness that happens when it's snowing. I especially loved the fact that I didn't have to go anywhere in it :) Not quite like the snow we got in PA, but that's ok!!

Stay warm!

Definitely a good memory! We're getting the snow here tomorrow. PA misses you B, Jeff and BabyBear!
