Have You Ever Wondered....

What 9 dozen cookies look like?

There you are. That 108 cookies. From left to right, gingerbread, lemon-berry jamwiches and peanut butter. All made from scratch yesterday. And if I know the Bear's Kindergarten classmates, I won't bring a single one home. Thank goodness!

Snow! In Southeast Texas?!

Well the weather got colder here. Drastically colder. Tuesday we almost hit 80 degrees. I sent the Bear to Kindergarten in shorts and a T-shirt. Tuesday night it started to get colder. And colder. Yesterday, Wednesday, the weather was cold and wet. I wrapped myself in 2 quilts, sweats, woolly socks, a hoodie & a jacket. The Bug was contend to run around the house in a long sleeve shirt and sweat pants. I still haven't figured out that Law of Thermodynamics. As the day progressed it got colder and then the rain turned to sleet. But the time Husband got home, it was full fledged snow. The boys played in the snow and threw mini-snowballs.
Consider that 3 months ago we were on the road, fleeing from Hurricane Ike. But last night, the damage that is still around was forgotten. What economy? Snow bring a bit of joy to this family. We all slept soundly, under 3 blankets, but soundly. Wonderful snowy dreams. Then I woke up and saw this.And this.
I forgot how quiet and beautiful it is after a snowfall. I know it's not going to last, but the memories will always be there. As well as the knowledge that because it will be in the 50s later today, I will not have to shovel it.
