White Christmas in North Texas...

My sweet grandkiddos had their very first White Christmas this year... It began snowing on Christmas Eve....

and Romeo with dog Daisy and Mom in tow went out with his light-sabor to play... it was cold!

Then on Christmas day, Panda and her brother little Einstein built a snowman in the front yard...

Their first White Christmas in north Texas... a beautiful childhood memory!
alas... no snow for Christmas down here in French Lique...
ps... thank you darling daughters for sharing the white Christmas photos with me and Grandpa... we love you!

Looks like you got to have a little Winter Wonderland there in Texas this Christmas! Kids do love their snow! Ours is all melted but we are expected to get another storm later this week.

Let it Snow!

Hi there!

I love the black and white photo! It tells a story!

I'm 18 and I haven't experienced a White Christmas yet. Maybe when I get to the States! Haha!

Much Love,

Oh I am SOOOO glad this happened for you and your grandkids! There is NOTHING like a white Christmas.

Our Christmas Eve was white, but by Christmas morning rain had washed away all the white. For us though, there is always the hope of a lot more white as the winter progresses through north central Indiana.

You know I think those of us in the South appreciate a white Christmas so much more because of its rarity.

A Very Happy New Year to you, Dixie.

I am happy that those sweet little kiddos had the experience of a white Christmas...it is awesome for those who have never experienced it! We had a white one to the tune of about 8"...now that Christmas day has come and gone...the snow can also!

Having lived in TX all my life, I know how exciting it is to have a white Christmas. Have to admit that at my age though I'd rather not have to deal with snow and ice. LOL It's cold but sunny here in central TX. Just perfect! ~ Sarah

We get such a kick out of seeing people in awe of their first snow ... we just got buried last week with 24" in our blizzard.

Love the pics of the kid-lings, they are darling.

Isn't that awesome? I had a head up to spend Christmas in Ennis with his dad, and he said they had snow there, too.
Maybe next year for us, right? :-)

Wishing you a very blessed New Year!

Oh Dixie...
What beautiful photos you have shared today. I so love them. I have not had a white Christmas in over 25 years, as that is how long it has been since I have been home. (My home is now here in Phoenix with my family). I dream about it at the holidays though, and yes Oklahoma did have a white Christmas with 10-12 inches of snow on the ground and lots of ice.

Thank you for sharing 2009 with me and I so look forward to 2010 this year with you.

Country hugs sweetie...Sherry
