The 'almost snow day'

Yesterday was supposed to be a snow day- a rare occasion in north Texas. We were expecting 1-4 inches of snow!!!

(Note: If you are from the North, this entire post will seem silly to you.)

Afton was so excited, she planned to make a snow man, have a snow ball fight, and make Jeep tracks in the snow. But then, the winds changed, a few flakes fell but it was just too warm to stick.

 Jeff looked at and told Afton the bad news.
But the great thing about Afton is, she knows how to make lemonade out of lemons.  So we bundled up and went out into the cold, wet day.
 Here is the 'snow' we got.
 And happily, I finally got to wear my adorable rain boots.
The snow man and snow ball ideas didn't quite work out. But Afton could still drive her Jeep.
So drive she did. All over the neighborhood.

Later we went inside and made a fort out of blankets and dinning room chairs.

A pretty good 'almost snow day'!


  1. I got to wear my new rainboots, too! Don't you love them?

  2. Love the boots, love the Jeep, and your girls are just too precious. :-)

  3. What a cute hat. I love those hats with the flowers.

  4. Oh geez, your girls couldn't be any cuter!! Love the hat, the jeep, the animal print coat and their adorable faces. :)
