Last week we all anticipated and planned for a "winter storm" for our area. We live in the South. When they say winter storm, we pay attention. Could be ten inches of snow, could be two inches of ice. We always hope for the snow. Last year at the same time of year we had an ice storm that crippled the area. And I mean crippled. Power lines came down and everyone in our town lost power. Some people in the area were without power for over a month!
Thankfully, this year we got snow. And lots of it! Officially in our town we received nine inches. NINE INCHES. In Arkansas. It started with sleet on Thursday night and since we had to travel to Jonesboro on Friday morning for Jason to have a test done, I got a little nervous. But we made it back home before it got too bad. Sweet husband he is, right after he told me he was seeing double while I was driving him home, he offered to drive. I politely declined. :)
It snowed and snowed and snowed Friday. It was beautiful, and we had two excited girls. Well, we had one excited girl anyway. Little bit didn't really understand what was going on! We played Saturday and Sunday too, since the roads were still bad and church was canceled. The roads were glazed over just right for some fun sledding Sunday. The picture above is what it still pretty much looks like today, so schools are still closed and we're having an inside day, aside from Daddy, who got to go to work today. Big girl hasn't even asked to go back out there yet. She's worn out from all the fun.
All bundled up and ready to go!
The snow was a little too deep for this sled Saturday. Good thing we had a toboggan too!
Gabby LOVED this one!
