Snow, Sandals, and Santa

Our neighborhood has the cutest tradition. The Winter Festival. They bring in snow; hot chocolate, cookies, chips, lemonade, and water; and crafts (beads and pipe cleaners). They have Santa arrive on a fire truck with sirens blaring.

But best of all . . . it was 75 degrees outside and we were all in sandals and shorts. The kids kept saying, "The snow is cold."

Uh, yeah . . . it's SNOW.
They were all so cute.

Can you spot Julianne and Catherine?

Telling Santa all their wish lists. Madelyn asked for "lots of toys". I did not hear what Julianne and Catherine asked for, and as for me and Trent. . . well Santa came a little early with a new Honda odyssey for us.

Your neighborhood looks dreamy. I do miss the nice neighborhoods in Houston! My kids are snow wimps b/c they have lived in Houston or AZ.almost their whole lives. We do get snow about 1 or 2 a year BUT they last about 10 minutes outside!Love your blog

What a great idea! Dumb question...where do they get the snow? :)

I have no idea where they get the snow, it was soft and fluffy for the first 1/2 hour , but then it got more like ice and anyone would have thought they just dumped ice all over the grass. I know ski resorts use snow makers to groom the lift lines and so there must exist some kind of snow maker machine.
