Not Spectacular...Just Home
But they hadn't seen snow in 21 years whilst living in San Antonio. Then the two of them moved to Siloam Spring in Arkansas earlier this year, just in time for Christmas. They had finished decorating their new home on December 3, and there was only one thing missing. "I was excited to see how it would look in the snow at night," Michael says. "I got my wish sooner than I expected."
A couple of days later, he decided to wait all day and evening for the snow to slow, making sure his Great Dane didn't come out front and put paw prints in the snow.
He says he likes the meaning of Christmas decorations. "It reminds me of putting up simple lights back in the day when we were really poor. We always had a tree and some lights."

OK, this is the first time in over 21 years my wife and I have had snow for Christmas! After moving from San Antonio, TX to the NW Arkansas area, we wanted to make the new house look nice for Christmas. It started snowing yesterday afternoon. The pictures were taken last night with about 3 inches of snow on the ground. This morning...about another 2 inches on that and more coming down!
Should be a fun few days for these recently transplanted Texans!
Merry Christmas, everyone!
