Snow in December?

For those of you in colder climates, this may not seem like a question but a certainty.  However, it's supposed to be rare or nonexistent for us in Texas!  However, last month, we received about 1 1/2 inches of snow.  Visions of the freezing cold, snowy winters of the last few years were parading through my head as I woke up to this:


Last winter almost broke me (although I say that a bit sheepishly because I know others endure worse but still, our buildings are not really built for this cold weather here in Texas!) 

As dawn broke, we found deer in our yard, searching for food under the thin blanket of snow.



It was a good sign that school had not been cancelled but still the roads were icy and this was NOT a good sign on our way to school:


But we made it fine and thankfully, temperatures rose that afternoon and everything was melting and almost gone by the end of the day!  So we are now in January and no other snow, though it has threatened at times, but we're not out of the woods yet!  The worst storms last year came through in February so I'm praying for a wet, but WARM winter! ;-)

Our Journey to Amelia

Well, it's been a long time coming but I finally finished a video of our trip to get Amelia, Gotcha Day, and our time afterwards...I'm not sure how long YouTube will let me keep this up so if the video doesn't appear or isn't working, click on the link below...
