Texas Style Winter Games

Smack in the middle of both Winter and Texas, we got together for some Texas style winter games! Mama Courtney and her lovely Izzy & Emmy hosted the fun at a neighborhood park...they were prepared with oodles of snowballs (rolled up socks), sleds (cardboard and rope) and ice skates (paper plates taped onto the bottom of the kids shoes with tape)! I still can't get over how the kids really LOVED throwing snowballs!











I'm loving this shot so much, I'm dubbing it my Best Shot

What wonderful photos! With 25 degree weather here, those short sleeve shirts sure look great...

Megan said...

how fun -- what a great activity! although it does seem like those "sleds" are a lot of work on the grass :).

Dawn said...

Oh, looks like fun! I love the one where the three girls are pulling the one on the sled...too cute!

That's about how wintery our winter games would be as well...

Happy Monday! :)

First thanks for the comment on my blog! It really encouraged me.

These photos are wonderful! I especially love the little boy in the football shirt and of course, the stuffed animal! Great perspectives.

Also, wanted to let you know that I added you to my blogroll!

Chris said...

So many great shots! I really like the one of the little boy laughing looking down. And of course, of that baby full on laugh (2nd from bottom).

What an amazing idea! I love it. Sounds like something I should try out around here too. We rarely see any snow in the valley and snowball socks sound like an excellent idea. :) Wonderful pictures.

Christina said...

Oh my gosh, this is SO MUCH FUN! I should totally organize a texas style winter games here...that's the only way these kids will have even the vaguest idea of what it means to go sledding!

Joanna said...

They look like they are having a ball! But what I notriced most about this post is you know how sometimes you look at a photo and you go, "Ooo" (like it really stands out)?
I did that on photos 4, 8 and 9 and then your best shot.

Great series! :o)

HOW much fun was that? And your BSM is just precious!

Mandy aka Mandaroo said...

All such great shots! I love that you captured winter in the southwest...very similar to here (San Diego). Looks like they're having a great time, and they have such great imaginations!

Golightly said...

WAY too fun!! What a great group of pictures, how could you choose just one for your best shot?

Julie said...
