the front of our house at 5:30 am...our poor sweet tree!
the road in front of our houseAfter a couple more hours of sleep we did finally get up and around. We really had no choice but to PLAY IN THE SNOW! I mean really it was not getting any warmer in our house...and well we needed to charge our phones too. So we bundled up and took off! First stop was to grab some gas. Then we were off to the park! I really wanted to get some pics of the beautiful snow before we lost it all. We went over by the botanical gardens. The park looked so clean and fresh. Hardly anyone had been out yet...the trees though they were very sad. Many of the trees had just fallen over and been up rooted by the weight of our very "wet" snow. Winston loved running free all over the park. He was our little bunny just jumping around every where.

We began to plan the rest of our day and where we could take the animals or stay for the night. Heavens knows I was NOT spending another night freezing cold. I had called my vet to see if I could board Bob for the night. Thankfully they did have an opening. Then we were going to take Winston to Petsmart for doggie day camp. At least there he could play and be WARM. We were going to catch a movie with some friends and then deiced from there. As I pulled onto the block we were OVER JOYED to see. LIGHTS LIGHTS LIGHTS!!! The neighbors lights were on and so was our porch light. It was the happiest moment of our day!
the best moment of the day....powerWhew we didn't need to ship off our babies or pack up for the night. Instead we could shower and go to the movies clean! (HUGE SMILE HERE) Oh and did I mention that my sister and family were coming to town today! That's right we had planned on enjoying the evening with them. However, I told them it depended on the power situation. YEAH we had power so they could come over too! They rolled in around 4 just as the house was starting to feel warm again. The kiddos could not believe the snow. I think Abby and Brian were pretty amazed too! We tried to do dinner with them, but guess what. ROSA'S (their favorite place ever) had no power either...so off to Dallas the headed. All in all from no power to power it was a fun couple of days with Chris, Winston, and Bob! Although we all agree nothing is better than sleeping in WARM beds!
