Snow Days

When there is snow in Arkansas, the state literally comes to a stand still. Of course you can make all sorts of jokes about it, but the fact is that generally speaking, road crews do not have equipment to clear all of the county roads thus leaving many folks stranded because they can't get out of their 3 mile driveway! School was closed yesterday here in Searcy due to about 3 inches of snow. We had to drive home from church on Sunday night and I must say that it was treacherous and I was thankful that hubby got us all home safe and sound. He called off work for his crew on Monday because in the end it's just not worth spending a half a day getting a truck out of the ditch or worrying about anyone getting hurt should something happen in one of our trucks.

We did get out at lunch and headed to my sister's house where we hitched up some sleds behind 4-wheelers and tons of fun was had by all!! Here is a little snippet of Tyler sledding with a big smile on his face!



Of course we took the time to have some good old fashioned snowball fights.

...and while everyone wasn't always happy with the way things were going.

Revenge was sweet!

My little angel (Shelby) took the time to make an angel of her own in the snow.

While Emily was just happy to be outside!

Well, of course we had some snow cream!

A great time was had by all and memories were made that will remain for years to come. Although there wasn't as much snow as the last time we went 4-wheeler sledding, we enjoyed ourselves just as well. Thanks to The Boone Family for allowing us to play on their property and thanks to The Sanders Family for bringing an extra wheeler and loads of laughs!
We are home again for snow day #2, although I am not quite sure why because the roads seemed to be clear. The kids will surely want to go outside when they awaken and realize that there is no school today. By tomorrow I can assure you that I will be ready to get back into the swing of things!
