First white Christmas in North Texas in 83 years!!! The dogs loved the snow and had a blast running around like nuts.
The girls opened their presents, we ate a bunch of junk and then after a quick nap we went to the movies. Ended up seeing Sherlock Holmes which was AMAZING!!!
Had a nasty storm today...snow and freezing cold. I thought I was back in North Dakota!!! Poor Skippy was freezing, so thankfully I got him dried off enough to get his blanket on....poor guy was shivering.
John was stuck at work and didn't leave until 4:30 in the morning and it took him 2 hours to get home....
But the girls and I were warm in the house with our Christmas Eve fire...

Allison has been wanting to get back into lessons and Ivan is well again, so we started off the day with a lesson. Then off to get hay.....then we went on the long and boring drive to Mexia. Didn't get home from Mexia until 1 in the morning which sucked...but we had a nice time while we were there.

John didn't get home until almost 4 this morning so we got a late start to Austin to pick up Alyssa. Stopped at the Ballpark in Arlington to look for Christmas presents for the girls, but the stuff was just WAY too expensive...I mean worse than Disney prices! I love going to the ballpark though...football stadiums are ok..but nothing like the baseball park to me!! I can't wait until baseball season starts up again!! Take me out to the ball game!!!
Stopped in West Texas for some kolaches and then we stopped at Target before we picked Alyssa up for the long and boring ride home....
The girls helped decorate our teeny tiny tree before Alyssa headed out the door with friends...the only way I know she is actually here is that she left me laundry!! Allison is making what I'm certain are incredible cookies that I am going to try very hard to resist, but not sure how well that will work....

It was freezing last night and this morning!! Woke up to a wind chill of 13 and also a sucky migraine. Blech on both of them!! Took the dogs outside to run in hopes that the cold weather would help my head (sometimes it does). Nope...the dogs had fun...but not only did my headache continue, I also felt like I was going to barf....
Ivan was munching on the hay and trying to stay out of the wind!!

Woke up this morning to snow!!! I would have bet the paycheck that it wouldn't snow, but we have about a half inch of the white stuff on the ground. Crazy!!
I may take Ivan's blanket off of him in a little while once I know the rain won't start up again, but after him being sick so long and losing weight because of it, I want him to be warm and dry! Thursday night is going to have wind chills around 16, so I think Skippy may get his blanket on then too...

No pic on Sunday, I had my camera and meant to take a picture of Alyssa at the bus stop, but it was pouring down rain so that didn't happen!
Had a fun day though, went to church, then to Wild Wings, Target then on to the bus station. Stopped at Petco on the way home and bought Olive a bed for 8 bucks...apparently she likes it!
