By the end of the year here in Texas we finally were able to enjoy some cooler weather. I grew up in California where we actually had seasons. The weather was dry and beautiful. My favorite holidays were Spring and Winter. I was a happy girl. When I moved to Texas I realized I had it better then I thought. Here most of the year it's hot and humid. Never a break. I miss home often and 2009 was no exception. It was a year of ups and downs and I didn't get to go back to California for the winter holidays this time around. My only wish was to have a cold Christmas. I'm happy to say I got my way. A little before though we had a surprise. A snow day! WOW! I was so excited and giddy like a little child. Due to my computer problems I was never able to post any pictures so I wanted to do a quick post real quick and share some memories of that fabulous day. So here we go...The princess and little monkeys had so much fun. It was freezing!!! I loved it. Christmas came and went and although I missed being at my Mom's house in California, my sweet tarts enjoyed it and got everything from Santa on their list.For the rest of the month into January I have enjoyed a lot of really cold days (more then usual) but we never had the snow again which I was sad about. Also, we lost our two fish in our outside pond. My Lucy and Ricky froze to death because they were not use to the freezing weather. They had been back there since 1998 and that was really sad for me. Now the warmer weather seems to have come back in the past week but the memories of my third winter in Texas was memorable to say the least.
