I know this is kind of late today... 10:15pm to be exact. We've been having a lot of Christmas fun with family and have not been anywhere near a computer for most of today. My son played golf for the first time ever with grandpa Keith, and we went shopping with grandma Betty. What a busy day. My feet are killing me. I was not impressed with a lot of the sales prices... not sure it was worth all that walking! I figured the two days after Christmas would bring UNBEATABLE deals. Not so.
The photo above is actually a signature that Pixel Perfect made me. I was referred to them by Lil Duck Duck. They have professional photoshop pros that can whip up a sparkly signature ("siggy") for free if you join up. The photos on this signature are from last January or February when it snowed in Arkansas. Being from Texas, this was a first for my children (hence the crazy look in Morgan's eyes). They had seen snowflakes before, but never snow that actually stayed longer than a few minutes.
The kids had about nine minutes of snow fun outside before they were wet through with sludge and dripping ice... and too cold to stay out any more. Maybe one day we can travel farther north where they can really play out in the snow... long enough to build a snowman and have a snowball fight. We Texans can dream! Of course, we would love to visit somewhere snowy like that... but living there is quite another matter!
Only a few more days in the Lone Star State before we head north. Oh, and as a bonus to those of you who actually read my posts all the way through to the end... I had the kids and Nana pick three favorite photos from the Charlotte's Web entries. The only reason I haven't posted the finalists is because I don't have the email address for my contact at Walden's marketing team with me on vacation. So... you'll have to wait until the 31st! Sorry!
Enjoy the rest of your holidays, everyone!
