And the twin is still asleep. It’s almost noon, and here is Manders, still in bed. Well, hopefully she’s still warm.
Yes, it’s freezing here in Texas. And I’m not even close to the Panhandle! Temperatures started dropping rapidly yesterday… wait, no Sunday evening is when the temperatures started dropping. They were near freezing yesterday morning and then it started to drizzle. Now if we all learned something in school, we know that when it’s near freezing and it starts to rain, it makes ice. Thus, we have ice on the roads! And I am freezing! Temperatures are definitely below freezing and have more precipitation coming this way. Great… I’m staying my butt inside.
Our birthday was pleasant! We got great gifts from our mom and from each other. It wasn’t too cold but it wasn’t too warm either. The day was glorious with plenty of sunshine. We got out that night and had the time of our lives!
That picture was taken at Heritage Square in front of the city’s Christmas tree. It’s something we do annually.
Tomorrow night we plan on doing something we do semi-annually. Every state has a thing where you can drive through miles and miles of light displays (and not on city streets). We call ours Nature In Lights and that’s in Belton right adjacent to Fort Hood. No, we won’t be on base though we have been before. What baffles me is that it’s not on base but when it’s not Christmas, the lake pavilion is off limits to civilians. Anyways, we went the year before and plan on going this year. It’s really cool, even if it seems dorkish. It’s quite extravagant. Here, check it out:
Hopefully it won’t be as cold. That would really suck.
