Snow in Houston!

It snowed in Houston! Yes, you heard right, it snowed here! It is a rare occurrence and the kids were so excited! Parker dashed out the first time with shorts, t-shirt and flip flops; Liddie dashed out with a long sleeve (leaves as she calls them) turtleneck, panties and a hat (great combo)! This was just initially to see the snow...I cannot begin to tell you the excitement around would have thought Santa arrived in the flesh!

The snow accumulated a little. It was odd to see snow on a Palm, imagine that! Four years ago Houston had their first White Christmas and we were in Springfield, MO. We were so disappointed then not to be home because that was a once in a lifetime occurrence in itself! We were excited to see this snow though! Of course, this morning you would not even be able to tell it snowed last night!

After dinner we let the kids go back outside for a few more minutes...better dressed though...Parker actually had a jacket and Liddie put on pants and crocs (go figure!). They threw little snowballs and just enjoyed the little bit of snow!

Holy Cow! That is crazy! It was crazy we had snow the same day in Tennessee!
