Yep. After days in the 70s, 80s and 90s…..the bottom dropped out and we’re hovering around the freezing point. We woke up this morning to a dusting of snow on the ground. I’m okay with that since we’ll be back up in beautiful temps in a day or two!
Elliott and I headed out this morning because she’s never gotten to experience snow. While this barely counts as snow, it’s something.
And….I wanted to grap a picture of this bluebonnet…
See…it’s the same one, I showed you the other day…
The one with the bee…
I think it’s sad because it misses its bee. Doesn’t it look sad?
Everybody say, “Awwwwwwww!”
Our irises looked gorgeous with a few flakes on them!
And….I have no idea what these flowers are, but they’re out by our back gate and just looked gorgeous. Who can tell me what they are?
Elliott (Miss I-Can’t-Tolerate-Messes) freaked out about snow getting on her beloved boots. About every two steps, she had to stop, wimper and examine the damage.
When it came to getting snow on her mittens, though….she was very intrigued.
She discovered a ball in the backyard and brushed away a bit of snow…
…and was absolutely over the moon to discover Minnie Mouse peeking out at her!
Before we headed into the house, she insisted on taking off her mittens to experience snow with her little fingers. I found the deepest accumulation I could (insert the laughter of people outside the state of Texas…) and let her touch.
I would have liked her first snow experience to involve snowballs, snow men and snow angels, but hey…we’ll take what we can get.
