Texas Snow 2009

Part I of this post: It snowed here in Houston...

Della was amazed...


She really wanted to check it out for herself...


First she was a little freaked out. She closed her eyes hoping the stuff falling from the sky would disappear...


She opened her eyes but was still slightly concerned...


Then she wanted to crawl around, but Mom wouldn't let her (what a meanie)...

Archer was at school, so we didn't get to play in the snow with him. He did get to "run around at school chasing snowflakes with a black paper."

Texas snow drift...


Part II of this post: Good thing we don't live off the land, we would starve!

Dear Texas,

This tomato famine has gone on long enough! What do you have against us Calders eating tomatos from our garden? The 4 plants we had in the summer were eaten alive. The 6 we planted in the Fall were killed by the freeze. Please, please can we eat just one tomato next season!?!

Love, the Calder Family

Look at your beautiful long hair! Gorgeous, Caitlin. I know that's completely unrelated to this post, but I had to tell you anyway. Also, I LOVED "We Don't Pray To Santa Buddy..." SO cute!

Well, you deserve an A+ for effort on that garden! That first picture at the beginning of the season looked so promising....I was expecting you to have to set up a roadside vegetable stand to get rid of all the excess vegetables you'd be growing. Then I came to the following pictures..........and that's where the A+ for effort came to mind. Little consolation, though....

It seems rather mean-spirited of Texas weather to freeze your veggies and not give you more than a grape-sized snow drift to play in.

The Santa dialogue was hilarious. :)

Your garden looked beautiful!! I had to smile and then laugh as I looked at all your photos. Hang in there!
