Snow on the Farm

Last week we had record low temperatures around South Texas. It "snowed" about 1/2" and shut down the whole of San Antonio. Kinda funny. Warm-weathered people just don't what to do when it actually gets cold.

This is the view from our front porch.

Looking left from the front porch.

The front of our barn-home.

Grandpa and Gigi's house across the drive way.

The roads were very icy.

Our neighbors fields.

Ice everywhere.

Picosa Ranch's airstrip iced over.

The boys got dressed in their warmest clothes and went outside to play.


Riley trying to "walk on water."


Naya will fetch anything! Riley threw this big ice chunk and she retrieved it for him!
What a good dog.

I made this hat for Abram for Christmas. Too cute on him =)

You made the pom pom! The farm is as picturesque as ever! That ice looked treacherous! Texas brings out the exclamation points in me :) (as do the Rickstrews)! xoxo
