Oh the weather outside is frightful....

One of the Crosby traditions that I love is the Homeowners Association puts on a snow party every December. They had fake snow brought in, Dickens Carolers, Santa, Hot Chocolate the whole 9 yards. We go down there and play in the "snow." The kids are always in shorts and t-shirts, it's never even cold enough for coats. One year I am pretty sure I have pics of Alice in Sandals. It's funny. Here are a couple of pictures of the fun in the fake snow

Joely did not like the cold wetness of it all-


This is Alice's back, she's wearing a skirt- David is in shorts and Quentin's in his hoodie.

It was a fun day! David wished it could be real, they all agreed that would be fun. They got their wish last night- It started to snow, really snow and it stuck to the ground. We made a wee snowman with a wee baby carrot nose. Sammi and I stood in the doorway most of the time, I don't like the cold anymore!!!! I was jonesin' for some sunny beach weather.


It always comes back to how adorable Joely is- she's in a cute little windbreaker, compliments of Old Navy circa 2004- I think the same coat Alice wore in the last snow "storm"



Sammi and I being Popcicles- the snowflakes look GINORMOUS!

Hey I don't know how I made the crazy mistiness appear, Perhaps it's the ghost of Christmas Future or something-but I think it looks cool. You can't tell, but Quentin is actually in the picture, he's just got his head down adn with his gangsta hoodie, he's concealed.

On a side note and just wondering if people are still reading this, did anyone look at the heavens last week? Wasn't it amazing to see Mars and Jupiter so close? I read on a friends blog how this sort of phenomenon in the heavens probably apperared around the same time as the advent of the Savior. It was neat to watch the celestial bodies and think of how close we are to our Heavenly Home.

Love the snow!! It reminds me of when it snowed in Laredo our last Christmas there. That is one good memory. If you ever want to play in real snow, you know where we are. Your kids would love it. You and I could sit in my nice warm kitchen, and drink cocoa;)

We had fun in the snow too. I took my Christmas card pic one day too soon though...

I have been bad about updating my blog. Just super duper busy this time of year.

Dan is in season and needs me all the time....men. Gotta love 'em!

We had a great time in it too. But I'm with you on the cold, even though I've lived in Alaska and Oregon, I'm not a fan of cold where it doesn't belong.

Of course I still read your blog!! I didn't know about the planets being so close or it being related to anything cool like that. Thanks for the tidbit.

I'm with you -- I only like the cold for about 2 seconds and then I'm done. I think the fake snow stuff looks good!

We missed the local "Snow Day" at the Baptist church so it was fun to get the real stuff - all 1/20 of an inch of it. And it's also fun to have it be 35 degree weather in a house with NO insulation! We had the fire going all day. . .

I love the picture of you. Your little face makes me happy. And I'm insanely jealous of the snow. The real snow, that is. Joely doesn't doesn't do a great job of selling the fake snow. :)

That's so fun!! I love the fake snow - what a great idea. I can't believe you guys got snow for real. It's a Christmas miracle! :) I loved the tiny snowman too! So fun that your kids got to play in the snow - that's why I never want to visit my brother in Texas at Christmastime. It doesn't feel like Christmas without snow! :)
