We got quite a little snow storm the past few days. First freezing rain and then sleet all day yesterday and then it changed to snow last night and snowed ALL day. So we have about 2 in of sleet with 7 inches of snow on top of it. School was cancelled yesterday and today and Mark took calls from home. So we have been cuddled by the fire in pjs, napping and playing. Wonderful!
We had a lovely Thanksgiving with my family on Thursday. The weather was lovely and all the little cousins went with my cousin to shoot guns and set up a duck blind.
Then with Mark's family we celebrated Christmas on Friday and Saturday in KC.
Oh and then there's this.....
WIt's November 24th and I feel like I'm on a roll. Tree is up. Presents are wrapped. Cards are in the mail. Now I have this whole week to be thankful. And I am so very, very thankful.
We got a real tree this year. Out of necessity, really. We got our expensive prelit tree out and one strand had gone out and I tried changing the fuses and checking for broken bulbs and finally reached the conclusion it wasn't fixable. Grrr. So we decided on a real one this year. And it's so wonderful. The house smells like Christmas.

There is a wonderful organization called Mamie's Poppy Plates in Little Rock that makes plates for women that have miscarriages and stillbirths in Arkansas hospitals. I have been so excited to get mine. I got a sweet Facebook message from the founder Sarah Bussey Adams who heard about me through my sister.
I got my plate yesterday and it was such a blessing to receive. These plates are provided for free because of generous donations.

Last weekend we surprised the girls and went to Branson for the weekend. We stayed at a place with an Indoor waterpark because it was supposed to get colder and rain all weekend.
Another surprise was that we got tickets to an Elvis tribute concert and this little Elvis fan was thrilled.
Here's some blurry pics of the show. We left our camera in the car because we didn't realize taking pictures would be allowed!
He was actually really good.
It was a nice weekend and the weather went from 88 degrees to 50 degrees overnight.
So it's officially Fall!
