Freezing temps on our tropical toes!

So, I totally had to blog about something a little more upbeat after my last blog.  You can only waller in your sorrows for so long, that self-pity thing can become viral if you don't watch it...thank God for his grace when we feel so doubtful.

So, the low for tonight is supposed to be around 18 degrees Fahrenheit....that is SO darn cold for our thin, tropical blood!  We only thought that our toes were cold when we first got home, there is even snow in Texas! 
We might even get some snow by the end of the week here in South Texas.  The kids are so excited, they will be in the middle of it, no matter how cold or miserable it might feel, they will be splashing through frozen puddles, sliding on thin patchy ice or whatever they can find to make the most of this surprise weather.  Hot chocolate, warm fires and super hot bubble baths will be high on the list for these kids when it is all said and done.  The joys of being a kid!
Today Trey went to Austin to meet with a few people that have some major pull in a few great organizations that do work with oil and gas companies.  He is such a natural at getting to know people and is just so laid back and easy to talk to, I am so proud of how he is taking the bull by the horns and making the most out of this next chapter in our lives.  He is truly the rock of our family and we are so blessed.

Take Care and God Bless,
Connie and Fam
