It's snowing!!!!

I know for many people that is no big deal, and sometimes even an annoyance. However, to those of us living in the Houston area, this is a rare event and one to be celebrated. I remember vividly the last time it snowed. It was the evening of December 24, 2004. I remember so well for 2 reasons. The first is because it was Christmas Eve, and the second is because it was Elise's first Christmas. We had a White Christmas that year.

Of course Elise doesn't remember one bit of that, so this is her first experience with snow! Unfortunately we didn't get much - not even enough to coat the ground. But at least she got to go outside and play as it fell for a few minutes. She had a ball!

It's a snowball!
