Snowflakes are falling on my head




It snowed all day today. And I'm not exaggerating. The snow kept coming and coming. As of the 10 pm news DFW airport had gotten 9.4 inches, a record for one day. It was fun. And cold. Before Matt left for work we took Walt and Dean out for a few minutes to take these pictures, so you can't really tell how much snow we ended up with by these. Walt had his fill (though he never cried, just looked uncomfortable.). A little while later, Dean asked again to play in the "snowflakes". I started to say I didn't want to because I was too cold, but then I thought, "How often is this kid going to have the opportunity to play in this much snow??" So we played outside for about an hour during Walt's nap. We made a much larger snowman in the front than our tiny snowman in the back. We took a walk around the block, and he was quite cold by the time we got back. At least he chose to wear a coat!

It was kind of like a flash back to the March snowstorm we had in 2008.

All that snow you guys have been getting is amazing! Hope you're staying warm too! (The cookie story is SO cute! Dean seems to be growing up so fast!)
