Christmas in our little valley

We were blessed with three inches of beautiful snow the night before last, which caused schools to be canceled, much to the delight of many, many children! Here are some pictures that I took last night as we were leaving for church. I've not taken pictures at night and was not sure of how they would turn out but they look pretty good, I think! The snow makes the Christmas lights and decorations look so much prettier!

The pictures are beautiful! I love snow and lights. We don't get that much in Texas. But if it snows AT ALL, the kids ARE out of school!!!!! No one knows how to handle it.

I'm in Texas as well, and I must agree... not much snow here. And when we do get snow... still not much! And still, the entire city shuts down. When I was attending Indiana University, we NEVER had a snow day. NEVER. I had to plow my way to class on many occassions. Here in Texas? I got my very first school day when there was just a threat of snow!! FOR REAL! I laughed and laughed...

Hi, Bro. Holley....thank you, and I've heard how it can be in the southern states when it snows! Mayhem! LOL I hope you are having good holidays with your family and church.

Rochelle...when I was in elementary and high school, they seldom canceled school because of snow. They stayed open for who COULD get there, but now they are much more apt to close at the least little snowfall. Go figure. That IS funny that you had to go to Texas to get your first for-real snow day! LOL

I love the pictures! The snow is beautiful and I would love to have a White Christmas, but that most likely will not happen here in TEXAS! You have several TEXAS readers, I see. :) I guess we dream about being in an area where there is a real winter! LOL! Keep the pictures coming and we will sit and dream about what you have. :) We'll try not to "envy" you. Merry Christmas!

Hi Barbara! Thanks, I'll be right over! Merry Christmas!
Sis. Elms....Thanks....yes, I do have alot of Texas readers, it seems! My husband's oldest daughter and family lives in Dallas and we've been there for Christmas before and it does seem different to be in warm weather for the holidays. One year it was 85! Whew!
Oh, and since the snowfall last week, we've had almost constant rain until the snow is now all gone and it is just cold, wet and dreary, but I'll not complain because we need the rain and we could be suffering like the poor people in Georgia who are dealing with water shortages, hm?
