Snow Day!

02-11-10 003

Snow is a pretty rare occurrence around these parts, but boy did we get it today! It started snowing sometime in the middle of the night and it hasn't stopped all day.

I took this picture so that you could see the accumulation of snow on our mail box.

Of course, the schools were closed - which meant that a friend had to come over.

And it meant I got to use my telephoto lens so I could see the girls from far away.

They were taking their sweet time, strolling in the snow.

Kenzie and Bailey are loving this.

Then, we had to get another friend involved, so Emily joined the group.

And they went into the backyard,

And mayhem ensued.

Bailey and Emily are at a standoff.

Eventually, I bribed them with hot chocolate and leftover birthday cake. It was the only way I could get them inside to get dry and warm.

They had a great day.

I just heard that they have already closed schools for tomorrow.

Help me.

Wow! That's some serious snow for Texas huh? Looks like the girls had a good time. I love snow stay at home days. We are expecting some snow this afternoon. Keeping our fingers crossed for it!
