SUPER Snow Days & Sledding in Texas

We never thought we'd be doing this in Texas! We're so happy we kept our sleds.

(ha ha- those huge gloves of John's look ridiculous on me...)

After 4 SNOW Days, (yes, FOUR straight days of NO school!) we were super happy to get outdoors and have an adventure.

Rebecca had an especially great time. Sick on Sunday & Monday + 4 Snow days stuck indoors= a little onery girl! She recovered quickly while sledding- phew!

John and I had tons of fun taking lots of pictures.

Super style Thomas.

The other highlight of the week was the homemade play dough for our snow days.

Peas in a pod by Rebecca.

Birthday cake (for a 5-year-old) by Allison.

Thomas' version of the birthday cake.

Super scary snake by Rebecca. (After a week like this, we'd still like spring to come back.... in a hurry! We're so glad the ice on the streets melted on Saturday. Now Dallas can get back to business and school as usual.)

You have 100% more snow than us. It's just cold here and no snow. Glad you had fun and that you kept your sleds:)

You probably have had more snow than us. Ours is almost all melted. I don't mind at all b/c at least when i take my kids outside it isn't so cold and windy I might lose them. did you make snowcream? That was one of my favorite things to do as a kids when we had snow.
