Just like the rest of Northeast Texas...
The Mershawn household woke up last Thursday morning to lots & lots of SNOW.
Mitchel got up with a certain giddy-ness that always let's me know something's up, then quickly came back with that little boy grin on his face....
Me (half asleep- after all I had been up only an hour before nursing)- "I know. The weatherman said it would be."
Him- "But, it's really snowing. Just thought you might want to know."
He's so cute.
He went on to work.
Miss P got up & she and I bundled up & played outside until I could no longer take it. (about 30 minutes...hey, give me a break, this is NOT Texas weather)
Daddy came home early & the 2 of them went back out for more fun.
I played for a few minutes, then used baby Tuck as an excuse to go in:).
(my mom's laughing right now...so me.)
I'm such a weinie.
It was SO pretty though, so I did have fun. Just cold fun.
Tucker spent his day inside.
Poor guy. I never even considered taking him out in it.
He's been battling a cold for almost 2 weeks now (grr), he has no bundle me up clothes, & I could hear my Nana....don't you think it's too cold out there for a baby?
He did get to stare at it through the window though.
He watched and watched as those huge flakes fell.
Cheeseburgers for dinner.
Made me happy.
Hot "shl-o-o-o-o-kit," monkey jammies, & Pinkalicious by the fire. :)
Day 2 & they were back at it.
Mitchel took Parker on a "walk" that landed them in the middle of a field.
I gently reminded him before they left that she was only 2 & not a grown man & that it was COLD.
They were gone an hour & 10 minutes.
So much for the reminder.
They built a giant snowman.
Dug & dug in the snow.
She told him she was cold.
He said, okay, let's take some pictures.
She did it.
She said her toes were cold.
He remembered my advice & headed home.
She did not freeze to death & he was sweating.
She had a blast.
Came home & drank more hot "shl-o-o-o-o-kit" (my new favorite word to hear her say).
And talked about the snow all day.
I love the change it brought.
And the reminder of the Lord's presence.
