I wasn’t just dreaming of a white Christmas…..

….because for the first time in my life, I had a we had a white Christmas. It was totally unexpected and totally welcomed. And it was actually perfect timing because I got to wake up early (5:30am) to make a huge mess opening all my presents with mommy, daddy, and grannie, then played with the gifts, and then got to go outside and play with mommy and daddy in the snow – it really couldn’t have been any better. And with all the excitement, we made sure we all understood the reason for the season.

As special as the day was, there was one downside – Buddy, my elf, went back to the North Pole for the year. I always get a little sad when he goes away, but I think about him a lot over the year. He’s my elf and the best elf ever so see you next year Buddy – can’t wait to see what silly things you do next year.

The following pics are from the Christmas season with Buddy and the family. (Note: one of my favorite pics is of me trying to catch snowflakes with my tongue.)

I’m dreaming of a white…Spring???

I always thought the first day of Spring wasn’t official until I built a snowman. Freaky I know, but this is Texas and that’s how we roll. The snow wasn’t like it was last time so we couldn’t roll the snow to make a nice looking snowman. Instead, we had to pile Frosty up. Mommy was being silly and made the snowman evil and had a shovel lodged in it’s snow heart. Too many horror movies as a kid for my mommy. Thank goodness daddy isn’t letting me watch those flicks.

Check out the pics and videos of me and mommy building a snowman. BTW you can subscribe to my YouTube channel and you can updates when I add a new video. And of course, you can see the videos of me I don’t post here.

Frosty watch out…

So I just got back from a cruise. It was a little chilly on the ship at times, but nothing like when I got back home. Now I’ve seen snow before (in addition to fire and rain), but this was a record amount for us. While, this may not be a lot to some of you, this is Texas ya’ll.

Here’s the vid of the undisturbed snow…

This is me checking it out…

This is our snowman…

Dreaming of a white Christmas

One of the cool things about Christmas this year was that there was snow on the ground for the first time since I’ve been alive and I heard it was the first time it snowed on Christmas Eve/Christmas in 80 years. Anyway, Christmas evening pawpaw Dupree and grandma Dupree came over to bring me presents – that makes anyone welcome. They got me a cool castle and helmet to make funny voices with. The real fun though came when pawpaw Dupree and I were outside throwing snowballs. The snow was pretty much all gone, but there was some still left in the shade. My hands were so cold that I had to put gloves on. The only problem was though, I could only find yellow plastic gloves. I told daddy he needed to buy me mittens. Anyway, here you go….(Oh, and BTW this is where I get my height from.)

It’s snowing!

I woke up this morning to my mommy and daddy all excited. They were telling me it was snowing. I went outside and saw the below picture. This was too cool. Too bad it didn’t stick around longer. I wanted to make a snowman, go sledding, have a snowball fight – not really sure there was enough snow for that, but it would’ve been fun to try. I hear more is coming our way on Friday. I hope so…

To top off this cool day, I came home and watched Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer with my mommy and daddy. They both told me that they use to watch this as a kid. I found it fascinating. The plot was intriguing and it stirred up so many emotions – sadness, fear, relief, happiness. I got a little scared when the abominable snowman was chasing Rudolph,  Hermie, and Yukon, but he turned out to be sweet. See what I mean by the plot. I’m glad I have it on my DVR. (BTW does anyone else think Hermie looks like my daddy’s friend Lynn?)

Anyway, I just lounged with daddy and mommy – I think they really enjoyed the time together.
