Williamson Winter Wonderland

Thursday, I left work early and headed home. Travis and the girls were there waiting. We settled in to get ready for some freezing rain, sleet and eventually snow. I was VERY nervous about losing power again. I am pretty sure last year scarred me.

It sleeted most of the night. Friday morning, we woke up to snow. It was snowing and quite possibly the hardest snow fell that I have ever seen! It was amazing! Emma and Travis couldn't stand it and headed outside to play.

Hannah, Catherine and I hung out inside. We baked cookies, cooked dinner and played resturant. It was fun to spend time with the little girls.

It snowed ALL day Friday and well into the evening. Saturday, we got up to about 6 or 7 inches of snow! After much persuading, we got Hannah to go play in the snow and even talked her into going sledding!

She played outside for about 2 mintues. After lunch, we headed out to the big hill to sled. We, of course, didn't have any sleds (why would we...we live in Arkansas for goodness sakes!). So, we improvised...laundry baskets make GREAT sleds! (We tried several stores in the area, but all were sold out of sleds).

On the first run, Hannah and Emma flipped over! Emma laughed...Hannah cried. Needless to say that was the end of sleding for Hannah!

Travis and Emma had a blast! Hannah, Catherine and I stayed long enough to snap some pics and headed back inside.

Today, Hannah has had a fever and isn't feeling well. We have stayed in side loving on her and playing when we can.

It's been pretty low key. Other than a sick Hannah, these snow days have been so fun!
