Hope each of you had a wonderful Christmas. We sure did. Capturing a winter sport in the Dallas area is hard to come by. We rarely get snow, but on Christmas Day at about one in the afternoon snow began to fall. Here are my granddaughters' reaction to what ended up a white Christmas.

Thanks so much for the nomination, Rocio. This shot means a lot to me.

    I LOVE this image. I lived in Houston during the Christmas snow in 2004... 4 inches in Galveston as I recall. I relocated from Chicago. I'd seen all the snow I ever cared to see, but when you never see it, especially for kids, this is the excitement it generates. The jams, slippers, and robes tell it all. They will cherish this photo for the rest of their lives.
