snow day!

Make that three ice days and one snow day to top it all off! Yes I know the entire country is covered in ice and snow but it becomes a holiday/celebration type ordeal when it happens in Texas. Plus my dogs LOVE the snow. They can’t get enough of it and I can’t seem to understand how their toes and tummies don’t freeze, but then again I’m not a dog… I caught Layla (on the left) and Mr. Blue Mutt in action this morning here in the Dallas snow. Hope everyone is staying warm and having fun this winter 2011!!

Snow… in Dallas!

Crazy – Fun – Cold! If you’ve watched the news lately you know that Dallas had record snow fall this week. I’ve never seen anything like it! We did it all: built two snowmen, went sledding, made s’mores over the fire… and went without power for 32 hours… brrrrrrrrr! I took Mr. Blue Mutt out to see what he thought of this strange white stuff falling from the sky – well he loved it! It was hard to get him to come inside – especially once he realized he could bury his soccer ball in the snow. Here are two quick photos I have managed to edit since the power has come back on. There are many more to come! If this only happens once every 50 years you can bet I filled up my camera… but I did put it down for a snowball fight!

Wishes for a Wonderful New Year!

Happy New Year! 

I snapped this photos on a recent trip to The Dallas Arboretum in November, I love the colors and it makes me hopeful for the New Year and the arrival of Spring. I am lucky enough to live in a city that doesn’t have much of a winter, however this Thursday the high is only 30 degrees and it is BIG news! Sorry all you guys up North, but just give me a call in the summer when we hit 110!!

Here’s wishing everyone a wonderful 2010 :)

By the way – I’ve named this little guy charlie… my nephew insists that every animal no matter how big or small they may be actually has a name. So I am constantly naming bugs and critters, birds and frogs . I’ve actually become very good at it to tell you the truth.
