We woke up this morning to F.R.E.E.Z.I.N.G. temperatures!! It was actually colder here than it was in Alaska...

Holy Snow!! The weatherman predicted we'd get 2-5 in. in this latest storm to make it's way through Arkansas. No biggie. Much better than last week we get a bad mix of ice and snow that shut down schools and businesses for 4 days. Not so! When I woke up this morning we had 14 in. already and the snow was still falling hard!
It was a record snowfall for us. We got about 20 in. at our house. That's about how much we usually get in 2 whole years! Crazy!!!!!!!
Here's our back deck...Can you spot Elyse's car buried under the snow???
Mmmm... we had to have some snow ice cream!!
Playing in the snow...
My view when I sat down...
Our steps to the front door were buried...
This is Elyse standing up in the snow.
It was up to her waist and she couldn't even walk in it...
Snow day fun!

I changed my blog design to something springy in hopes that Old Man Winter would get the message and take a hike! It doesn't look promising...We've only had one full week of school since before Christmas break. At this rate we seriously are going to be going to school until July. If we miss more school this week, we'll be to the middle of June already! Come on Spring!!! Come on Sunshine!!!

We have a problem at our house. A s.e.r.i.o.u.s. problem. I think it may be time for an intervention.
Payton is addicted to socks.
Nike Elite Socks.

It is really snowing right now! We are home again for a snow day and enjoying watching the beautiful snow falling. They're forecasting .5-1 in. of ice and 4-10 in. of snow followed by freezing temps with negative wind chills for the next few days. We're all snuggled up inside and hoping that we don't lose power.
We don't want a repeat of the 2009 storm...For the past 4 years, Payton has gotten snow on his birthday. Yesterday was the first day that he'd gone to school on his birthday in quite a while. I know he was excited though, because he would have been disappointed to miss his basketball game. Miss Elyse is looking forward to doing some more sledding!
Looks like we'll be inside for the next few days! That means more time to work on National Boards for me (which equals more gray hairs and more pounds packed on!!! This stress is killing me!)
