Snow Day & Date Night.

13 Feb

Yesterday we woke up to a beautiful surprise – SNOW! It rarely snows here in East Texas, so for us- it is very exciting! The college where Ryan works was closed for the day and the girls school was delayed. So that morning, we all played in the snow & made a snowman…it was a total blast! Kamryn wasn’t quite sure about snow…she didn’t want to stand in it. But Addi absolutely loved it and never stopped smiling the whole time we were out in it. Our electricity was out for a long time as well – so we were thankful to have a gas stove so we could make french press coffee & pancakes. It was a great morning! Then, last night – Ryan & I got to go out on a date (thanks Uncle Jeff for babysitting). We met up with some other couples from our community group at this yummy new Italian bistro. Had such a great time! We are truly thankful for the friends God has blessed us with and the true sense of community we are starting to feel here in Tyler.

    Ryan, that sure was a GREAT LOOKING SNOWMAN you built! Of course the cute girls help with the overall look too.

    Snow in East Texas should be shared on numerous blogs. When it comes to being competitive and who was first, remember to share and share alike.

    Of course you would have had plenty of snow to work with if you were in the D.C. area. We are currently #2 in the snowiest cities in the US with our all time record breaking “Snowiest winters ever recorded in DC” (60+”). We normally get about 15″. More snow is scheduled to arrive by tomorrow (Tuesday Feb 16th).

    Love to All,
