Many of you think it doesn't snow in El Paso, but guess what??! Not only have we gotten to enjoy building a snowman at home, but this weekend we took an excursion to Ruidoso, NM (2.5 hours away) and encountered blizzard-like conditions! That may not sound so exciting to you who have snow on the ground all winter but for us who get it 3 times per year (and especially for two little girls!), it's VERY exciting!
In Ruidoso, we got 6 inches overnight and the girls and Daddy went tubing and thoroughly enjoyed it! The next day, we all went sledding on the retreat grounds and had a blast...that is, until Hannah ran into a tree and sprained her ankle. BUT, if you're going to sprain an ankle, it sure is fun to say you sprained it sledding; she'll testify to that!
The pictures with trees are in Ruidoso; the others (like the one with the snow-covered cactus) are right here in our own backyard. Beautiful, isn't it?
