Caroling Down the Strip

WOW! SO MUCH FUN!!!! My bishop owns the dairy, so he decorated a flatbed semi with tons of Christmas lights and loaded it with hay. We all climbed on and rode down the strip playing Christmas music, singing along, and waving to all the people on the strip. It was so much fun to see people's reactions. They would be thinking 'What is going on?' and stare at us for a few seconds, then smile and wave back with a lot of enthusiasm. It was so much fun!

It's a snow day!

No school today! School has been cancelled due to the weather. It sounds like the snow has melted and frozen on the roads. I have every intention of not going anywhere today, except maybe outside to play in the snow. Hot chocolate here I come!

Snow Totals:
Las Vegas 3.5 "
Henderson 8-10"

We got the most snow here in Henderson.

Oh, The Weather Outside is Frightful

It's just starting to snow

My view from my classroom. My steps are covered in snow.

The school as I'm leaving work.

There's something wrong with this picture: Palm trees should not have snow.

Snow Angel!

Let it snow, Let it snow, Let it snow

There had been rumors that it was going to snow here in Las Vegas this week, but I had been hoping it wouldn't. I lived in Idaho for three years and did not enjoy living in snow. So this afternoon as I'm running around getting things ready for my class and for parent teacher conferences, I walk outside and it's snowing! And I remembered how much fun snow can be when it doesn't stick! This just proves to everyone that it really does get cold in Las Vegas in the winter.

It's starting to stick....

Christmas Lights

One thing that I love about Christmas is driving through the neighborhood and looking at Christmas lights. Jordan found out about a house near her work that we had to check it out. This house has a crazy amount of lights and it's synched to the radio!!! It had a loop of about 8 songs and different lights would turn on and off to go with music. It was the coolest house I've ever seen!
