GALVESTON ISLAND’S
FIRST WHITE CHRISTMAS!
Scenes from Laffite’s Cove
December 24 & 25, 2004

The first flurries started around 11 p.m. Christmas Eve. By 2:00 a.m. the next morning, quite a bit of snow had accumulated.

Christmas afternoon—time to play
Snow angels.
Our first snowman together! As you can see, our skills are a little rusty. Cherry tomatoes were used for his eyes—we were out of coal.
Mike and snowman. Note his impromptu ‘gloves’—socks over plastic grocery bags.
What a day!
Winter Wonderland.
