As tradition, we spent Christmas Eve at my parents. Just like the rest of the nation, we got to experience some of the crazy winter weather.
Never in my life have I seen it snow around here like this! This was the first blizzard warning this far south in Texas--EVER!! And of course, we had to go out and drive in it. The trip to my parents usually takes about 45 min, but it took us an hour to get there and two hours to get home. Once we got home, it took us three attempts to get the car to go up the incline of the driveway--and its not that steep!
Will got all bundled up for the trip out to my parents.
One of Luke's favorite gifts he got on Christmas Eve from my parents. Here he is enjoying it on the floor of their kitchen. He is really, really into cars--Hot Wheels, Matchbox, Cars Movie. . . all of it. He got this giant semi truck that holds a ton of cars and came half filled with cars. Immediately he unloaded the cars and assumed the position. He always lays down like this to line all his cars up in parking lot rows.
The Cra-Z-Art set from Luke's cousins was also a winner around here. As soon as we got home we had to whip out some paper so we could try out all the colors.
Due to the weather, we decided to skip Chrismas Eve service so we could head home before it got too late. We went ahead and put on our church clothes and took a family picture anyway. It took quite a few shots for us to get a family picture in which Luke was not a blur. Its hard for a two year old to stand still. This is one of the best ones we got.

This is what we came home to--a thick blanket of snow covered our backyard.
P.S. Happy Birthday Nammy!
