Real Snow (for Arkansas)
We got some snow! Good snow that when it fell was so soft and fluffy! I can't remember the last time it snowed such perfect snowflakes. I didn't even know we were supposed to get any snow and then I woke up to the sound of sleet on my window at 2:30 a.m. and remembered that Buck was still outside! Aahhh! I jumped up and put him out in the garage and went back to bed. When I awoke at 6:45 to get the kids up, I looked outside and saw the snow/ice. It snowed all day long! HUGE, beautiful flakes. The neighbors were out by 9 and we were all bundled up and out by 10. There were about 4 families at one time out in our cul-de-sac, throwing snowballs at each other and making a snowman. Jared and I were also opening our mouths and trying to catch the flakes in them. We stayed out for about 2 hours and had lots of fun. I think Jared and I were the last ones inside, actually.
We are now on Day 3 of no school. The snow is lingering outside but isn't fluffy and soft anymore because it's been sunny but right at freezing during the day. It melts but then at night it freezes up again. My house is a mess and Chase and I have worn our pj's for 2 days now.(We changed our pj's at night after our shower) At least we had bread and milk in the house.
