I'm Dreaming of a White Christmas and Gingerbread Houses

You will never believe what Christmas prayer was answered last night. IT SNOWED IN HOUSON. That's right, it snowed.

It has not really felt like Christmas as much this year because we had no plans for vacationing with family, and no really cold weather, etc. Then yesterday morning it was freezing out. When I got in the car last night to go to the Relief Society Christmas it was snowing. I was in heaven because it made be feel like I was back in Idaho when the first snow hits. Unfortunately I think it is the last snow unless we are lucky enough to get it one more time before Christmas. I will not count on it. The funny thing about it is that the day before it warmed up and was humid enough that we turned our A/C back on. I am just happy that Summer got to see the snow. She kept saying that it was going to be Christmas and then it would snow in Houston. I would tell her that it was not likely to happen as it is too warm in Houston for snow. I guess she was right, and her little prayer was answered.

WARNING: to those of you in snow covered areas this may seem silly that I took pictures of not even an inch of snow, but it is a rare sight in Houston.

We decided to let Summer make a gingerbread house this year. She had a blast and wondered when she could eat the candy.

Isn't it cute. It was fun to make and great family time too.

That looks so fun! I should let Samantha do a gingerbread house too. And you got snow??? Who would've thought!? I'm glad you got it. It doesn't really feel like Christmas without it. We're supposed to get some this weekend. I'm pretty excited because we don't get much around Seattle either. Yeah for snow!

I can't believe it snowed in Houston. I lived there for four in a half years and never saw snow. My first winter in Houston it snowed, but I was here in Utah for Christmas break. I am grateful you got a little taste of snow. It is suppose to snow here in Utah Saturday, Sunday and into next week. We will see, the ski resorts have been praying for it. I hope all is well with you guys. We sure miss our friends in Houston.

Hey! I saw your comment on my blog and was so intrigued I had to find out who it was, and it's you!!! Aren't you so adorable! You're family is so sweet. I am setting up an Etsy shop but let me know what you want and I'll send it to you. Summer would be darling in the "Once Upon a Time" skirt. Although don't start with that one it's a little more intermediateish. I was just in Houston in October for a show for my patterns I wish I would've known about you it would've been fun to see you! E-mail me, so I'm not like totally writing a big long message on your blog :0)!
