Merry Christmas to you!

One of my favourite things to do, which I don't get to do enough of these days, is film and edit videos.

So for the day we put up the Christmas tree I got out my camera and set it up to film this little fun thing.

I've sent the link to all my family and friends to act as our Christmas card type thing this year since I won't be sending anything else because they're all in New Zealand.

So here it is! Enjoy!

Merry Christmas!!

Snow!! Well... kinda...

Living in Texas is certainly different than living in New Zealand for so many reasons...

Here's another:

The Weather!

For a couple of days we've been getting warnings about "Winter storms" and I guess I just kind of shrugged it off like "oh it's going to be cold."
Yes! It is cold, but this ICE stuff is just crazy! I've never seen anything like it.

Now, when I say Ice, I mean ICE. There is ice on every possible surface. The trees are weighed down so heavily that they are all bent over or have branches that have snapped and fallen off. This tree in the photo below is just outside out patio and was completely split in half.

The car was frozen solid. I had to go out this morning and chisel it out so hubby could leave for work. Even the handle was covered in ice.

I took the two youngest out to walk around to see the snow and ice. They love cracking the ice, finding big chunks and smashing them. We found these gorgeous pink flowers that were hanging upside down and covered in ice. We picked a couple and then smashed them - they shattered like glass.

A couple of kids were riding down a hill near the playground on a skateboard deck. The girls each took a few turns and I even gave it a go!

I love seeing their reaction to things like this, they're always so excited by the smallest things.

Hope you're all having a warmer day than us!
