I really should add some pictures. Maybe in a little while when the kids go outside to play (I'm sure they will.) It snowed again yesterday! Not a surprise to some of you being it is winter and all, but this is Arkansas and it has never snowed this much here in the 8 years we have been here. It snowed for 12 hours yesterday and there is a possibility of more this week. Actually, to be honest the snow made me really nervous yesterday. I know I was born and raised in WNY, but this is not New York. We do not have salt trucks and snow plows to clear the roads. Art went to work yesterday morning in the truck because the car needs new tires and he didn't want to take my van in case of an emergency or I went into labor. He slid several times on the way in and there were several cars in ditches. The roads got worse as he got closer to town and him and a friend ended up helping a lady who was stuck in the snow. I sat here with the children watching a movie because we could not go the grocery store and watched the snow continue to fall and the roads were completely covered. I was very glad when Art got home form work and brought some bread, milk, and diapers. The children were happy to grab their winter gear and sled and take a few rides down the front hill. Even though it is fun for the children I am ready for Spring!
