A Little Bit of Snow - Time to pull out White Christmas

Well, the big news around here is the day (hours??) of snow we had last week.  The little girls were so excited and can't wait for it to snow again next year they said.  I thought to myself that next year may actually be 10 years from now in Texas but you never know with this crazy weather.

And I'm wondering if all that smoke and debris that is filling the California skies will make a difference in the weather.  Doesn't it block or contribute to certain conditions?  Weather is really amazing.  Sometime soon I need to do some reading about what affects our weather.

This past weekend we had a Pre-Birthday Party for the little Artist.  She will be 8 years old this coming weekend.  It is so nice to be able to send the Grandson and his Girlfriend (with excellent taste) out to buy the decorations and then put up the streamers.  Hahaha.  Made it all so much more enjoyable.  I guess that is another sign of aging.  I'm not as interested in doing all the decorating or fancy package wrapping as I did in earlier years.  Oh well.  It was still lovely and we had a great time.

The theme was "You Are Amazing" with Unicorn plates and napkins and table cover.  Streamers and decorations also hung from the ceiling.  And little cupcakes for doll tea parties afterward.

  1. What cuties. We had snow for a few hours as well. I actually think you got more in Texas. It is fun though when you don't have it for months on end and you're young and don't have to shove. :-)

  2. Adorable! I am surprised you had snow, Barbara. Crazy weather indeed

  3. Happy Birthday to the Little Artist! May all her unicorn wishes come true!

  4. Happy Birthday to the Little Artist. Eight is such a great age. I remember feeling rather grown up at that age. They are just so darn cute. Enjoy this time.
    I envy you your snow. We got nothing and are dry as a bone here.

  5. Wasn't the snow wonderful? We got some, too. Very unusual for this time of year in North Georgia! Your grandgirl is so beautiful. I'm sure she felt quite the princess at her party!
