When hell freezes over...

Alternately titled, "When the Blessed Machines Bring Snow to Poor, Deprived Southern Children"






Everything is bigger in Texas (except snowmen).


PS: I'll write up The Insurance Saga, Part Deux in a couple of days. I have finals today and tomorrow so until then, enjoy these photos of wholly delighted children.

That looks like so much fun! I'm sure they were beside themselves with glee. When we did that last week, my kids got to watch them put a new layer on with the snow machine...it was almost as enjoyable to them as playing in it. like a giant snowcone machine.

I love the snowman.

Dear Kyla,
You must bring your children to visit me in winter. We got a foot of the real stuff yesterday. That is all.

Awesome. Snow in Texas.

Awww... so adorable! You want any more snow?? I'm sure we'll have some extra to spare within a couple weeks. Maybe I can ship you some through EXPRESS mail? I'm sure your kids would enjoy it a lot more than we will ;)

Beck said...

Oh, Kyla. Move to my town! Your kids would have all the snow they could ever want AND MORE.

Too cool! I miss snow sometimes, living here in Houston. Though I don't miss all the long, cold winters that go along with it. A snow machine sounds perfect!

Fun, fun, fun! I'm surprised you even had coats for them to wear!

Awesome! Snow! My girls keep waiting for the snow, since it is now officially "winter" - they don't understand that is doesn't snow in California.
