Can you Believe it?!

When we moved to Texas, we thought it would be great because we kept moving further and further south thus getting away from the snow. They say it never snows here, but to our dismay (and Brighton's joy) the snow flew yesterday! It was about 6-8 inches and it's gone now, but it was actually fun while it lasted for that 1/2 day. Schools everywhere were cancelled and the whole town basically shut down which was a joke to me because it was a light morning dew to Alaska standards. Brighton thought it was the coolest thing to make a snowman and Porter had enough after about 5 minutes. Luckily, Kyle had the day off so we made it quite a family event. We're grateful to have that fun little winter memory, but now we're ready for the spring to come!

Kyle, being the bully of a daddy that he is, thought it would be funny to throw snowballs at the littlest, most defenseless person out there. Needless to say, Porter wanted to go inside soon after that.

Porter got a head-full after standing underneath an overhang. This probably didn't help to make his first texas snow experience pleasant either.

Brighton was so proud of her snowman, she named her Frostbite (Frosty's daughter).

Good times had by most!

Clean as a Whistle

Lately Kyle has been putting Brighton to the test by making her deep clean our house with him. In the past week she has organized her bookshelf and cleaned her room everyday, done the dishes, vacuumed the couches, and he's even had her wash the windows! Who is this guy? I think he missed the memo that said child labor laws are in effect. Luckily Brighton enjoys it but I'm sure that happiness will soon fade once it's required of her to do these chores. For now, I guess I should just kick back and soak in the fact, that I'm not the only one doing the housework!

Workin' at the Car Wash

If we lived in Alaska or anywhere else for that matter, this would not be happening, but thanks to the mild Texas winters (although everywhere else in TX it's not so mild) Kyle and Brighton were able to go out and wash the car the other day. Even though Brighton probably made it a little dirtier than cleaner, she had a ton of fun hanging out with dad and she even sprayed herself in the face with the hose and only cried a little bit (purely accidental, but hilarious for the fam to see!).
