Merry Christmas, Y'all!

So you've heard that everything is bigger in Texas. Or so we natives like to think. Christmas is, without a doubt, no exception. We eat like it's our last meal on earth. We sing carols like they're going out of style (according to my husband, they already have). We jingle bells, we deck the halls, we dream of a white Christmas....but this year our dreams came true. That's right, you heard me. West Texas had a snowy Christmas. That's rare. That's big. I wish I could say we were dashing through the snow, but we weren't. We were driving our very large pick-up trucks very slowly. But hey, we enjoyed it nonetheless.

Here are a few pictures of our first days back home. Oh, to relive these moments. They were magical.

There are two more Christmas posts coming your way, but I'll leave you with a little taste....behold the beauty of Horseshoe Bay

Hope your holiday has been merry and bright :)


  1. Looks like you all had a great time! And y'all got snow?! Jealous. We live in South Texas (Houston/SA) and we were in North TX for Christmas (Dallas/Tyler) and all we got was gross rain. Ha!

  2. What a picture perfect Christmas! Food, family,and fun!! That is just what it is supposed to be!! That photo of Horseshoe Bay is just beautiful!! It is snowing here in Michigan, not accumulating too much yet though!! xoxox Happy New Year!!

  3. The bay is beautiful, not sure if I told you but im from Texas as well and YES everything is bigger in Texas. Thats the only way to have it, from the looks of things "ya'll" had lots of family time over the Holidays!!!
