Snow/Ice Day

February 27, 2011

We’ve had several snow/ice days this year, which is highly unusual for us in Texas.  We woke up several days to everything covered in ice.  Then we got about 6-7 inches of snow on top of that. Schools were cancelled, Brad worked from home, and the kids and I decided to decorate cupcakes and make a cake for Mimi’s birthday on one of our days housebound.  Her birthday was December 31st, but since she wasn’t here then, we had to celebrate a bit later.  It was definitely fun. :)

Since these pictures were taken, we’ve had lots of short sleeve weather, we’ve flown kites, played at several playgrounds where Holden chased the squirrels and was pretty upset that he couldn’t catch one. LOL  The weather here really is crazy.  One day we’re bundled up for freezing temperatures and the next day, Kasen is asking to go swimming because it’s a beautiful day. ;)  I enjoyed the days that we were “stuck” at home because we were all together as a family.  We played games, worked on crafts and snuggled together to watch movies.  And, of course, we played in the ice and snow.  :)  I have pictures of that too, and someday I’ll post those as well.  Don’t hold your breath though. ;) LOL

We had so much fun this day baking and decorating.  Kasen was a little over enthusiastic with her decorating skills. LOL  And Holden, as you can see, had the most fun eating the final product.  He asks for “cuh-cake” quite often now because of this very day.  We also had to sing “Happy Birthday” to everyone so each person had a chance to blow out the candles.  Come to think of it, Holden has been singing “Haaaa-eeeee- Birrr-Daaayyyy……..toooooo youuuuuuuuu” a lot lately.  I thought he picked it up at school, but maybe he just remembers this day.  Funny, he has a great memory just like his big sis. :)  Enjoy the sweetness. ;)
