Oh the weather outside

...is frightful.
AND I LOVE IT. Welcome to Las Vegas. Welcome to my winter wonderland. It snowed here on Monday and we got 3 inches at our house. Today we had a winter storm warning and so my boss let me go home a little early to beat the storm. We are supposed to get 3-6 inches by the time it's over.

Highlights:
1) Our snow covered house
2) Our tree that CANNOT withstand the snow and insists on making this awesome U shape3) Our baby snowman (Sorry Colton, he'll have to replace you until you get here)4) Mike STILL golfing in the back yard (see video)

I can't believe all the snow we are getting! Our trees were all bent over too. Growing up here I have never seen so much snow.

You guys beat Virginia in getting snow...that seems so backwards! Your poor tree. But it sure does make it feel like Christmas!!! I love the snowman...it reminds me of a snowman I made many years ago...

This cracks me up! I bet the people in Vegas are going crazy! How fun...I love that Mikes is holding a broom. I guess you probably don't own a shovel!

Fabulous! Merry Christmas! I heard it on my car radio today , and thought "Really? I wonder if Angie and Mike got any snow?" They also said it snowed in Los Angeles. Wow, how fun.

What about us?? A "wintry mix" is predicted for Sunday, which is the day of my choir program!

(You might want to brush the snow off the leaves of that tree so it can stand up, and not break!)

Mike, your form is still excellent, despite the challenging environment and questionable golf club. Your house looks pretty in the snow. I wonder if you'll ever see it like that again!

This is the Luptons. Just so you know. Robert and the rest of us laughed our heads off at Mike's golf swing and the blizzard that hit your back yard!Here are the names of our blogs, just in case you want them, and Robert really wants me to put them here.

Your snow man is so cute. I love it. Of course Mikey would be golfing in the snow! Unfortunately, it doesn't look like the snow goes quite as far as a ball.

I have never seen a tree quite like that! "U shape" is the best description for the poor thing!

I am so jealous of your snow. No fair! Isn't Valencia entitled to 3-6 inches if Vegas gets it?

That is the cutest snowman ever.
