Since Monday, all of our weathermen here in Arkansas have been preparing our state for a big ice storm. My blog friends (and friends in real life) have been hit hard in the northwest part of our state, having lots of ice causing them to lose power. No power = no fun!
On Tuesday they went ahead and closed school, so Evan, Ella Grace and I literally stayed in our pajamas all day and played, played, and played some more. Derek had to work! It only rained...the kids really could have been in school but I guess better safe than sorry, and I sure enjoyed Evan having a day off. The weathermen were saying Wednesday would be horrible for us, so on the way home from work, Derek stopped by the store to get the essentials for a fun iced in kind of day...you know, chocolate chip cookies and the ingredients needed for cheese dip! We went to sleep knowing school would be closed and Derek wouldn't have to work the next day. Yeah!
I was shocked when I woke up at 8:00 this morning and went to the window to see all the ice. Instead, I saw this...
Umm, where is the ice? I don't see any, do you? I ran in the house telling Derek to get up, as he was late for work and Evan was late for school. I'm a little sad that we didn't have that family time together (especially those cookies and cheese dip), but I'm really glad we didn't have a lot of ice and a power outage!
All of you out there with no power, I hope you are staying warm and you get lights soon!
Oh, and I heard that Harper went off her ventilator today and that Kelly got to feed her. More miraculous news from Tulsa! Can't wait to see an update on her blog tonight! Yeah!
