Blizzard of 2010

I may or may not have turned this whole house upside down looking for my camera cord. I may have found it. Or I may have gone and bought something else I could download through with my memory card. Whatever!

So if you don't know, the DFW area got over 12 inches of snow this past week. We set all kinds of records with this amount of snowfall!

We actually got about 11 inches here at our house.
That's a ruler right there, by the way.

It has been gorgeous! A true Winter Wonderland.

We, of course, could not wait to get out in it. So we bundled up and out we went. Neither girls liked walking in the snow, but Abby??

This is exactly how she felt about it

She sat like this 95% of the time we were outside.
She was content to nibble off her snowball.

Olivia was better about walking around
She found herself a snowball to eat, too.
Zachary worked on making the "perfect" snowball

Zachary making a snowman
Our snowman!

A mini sled run

I love this picture of Olivia

Some of the neighborhood kids got together
and made a Texas size snowman in our park.
Gary and I took turns taking Zachary sledding
This also shows a great view of the Frisbee golf course.
Please ignore the dog.
Poor thing, we were right behind his house
and he was trying so hard to protect his family and run us all off.
He barked the entire time we were there. The.whole.time.

Abby was more than ready to head inside
which was quite different from the last time it snowed.

Playing in the snow makes for tired, tired zombies
who watch Little Bear for a solid 30 minutes without moving.
I actually got to enjoy a whole cup of coffee with no interruptions.

And that, my friends...

Makes my Monday!!

I see you are a blogHer person. How long did it take you to get "approved"? They are accepting applications but not doing anything with them now and I am wondering how long until I hear from them.

Oh Sara, I adore all the pictures, but that last one...all cozied up and watching some Little Bear while Mama enjoys some post-snow coffee? PRICELESS!

Thanks so much for playing along with Makes My Monday!
