Yeah, it did!






You know what they say about good ol' Arkansas - if you don't like the weather, just wait a minute. It was 70-degree T-shirt weather Sunday. I was actually getting hot sitting in the car getting ready to go home from Forrest City. And when I woke up this morning and peeked out of my bedroom blinds, I was shocked and a little bit awed. Snow!! How ridiculous. And quite a bit of it, as well. Although the schools closed today, it stopped snowing at around 10 a.m. and as I write this at 1:05, it is really melting. But it was pretty while it lasted. Carrie and I spent the morning looking for snow art for the newspaper and we came across this awesome hill at the Conway Country Club where kids were sledding on all sorts of fun stuff - garbage can lids, inner tubes, boogie boards - not many families in Arkansas have sleds, I'd imagine. But here are some pictures from that photo shoot and a few to show the view from my front and back porches this morning. And, no, little Nathan Pinkeye hasn't been out in the snow yet - we don't want to risk turning him into little Nathan Pinkeye Snotnose. :) Have a fun snow day and stay warm!

Nathan told me he wanted to go sledding

On the one hand, I'm glad you guys finally got something. On the OTHER HAND, however, I'm sitting here staring at the TWELVE FOOT snowbanks on the lot at my work laughing at y'all.

Aunt B is such a stinker. :) But I still love her so very very much!

Aw, Monkey, Aunt B is just really, really cold and she misses the sunshine! But then she looks at your precious face and her whole day is so much brighter!

How is your eyeball? Does it feel better? Grammy said you weren't feeling well. :( I'm sorry, precious monkey baby. I love you!
