This pretty much sums up the last few days for us.  I know all of you in the north are probably eye rolling at all off us in the south but I can't EVER remember it being this cold in Arkansas in my 47 years.  And we have had snow but not any in probably 8 years so it's always amazing to us when we get a big snow.  

We were at home all last week due to an Ice storm.  The roads were finally clear on Saturday so I got out to shop for what I knew was coming this week.  Thankfully the stores weren't completely wiped out when I went.  

WH got sent home from school last Monday morning because he had possible contact at school.  So he had to quarantine.  Which I'm so grateful we made it to February before this happened! He had to do virtual school all week which was an adventure.  Following the regulations - I took him to get tested on Saturday.  Hollis had coughed a little during the week so I had her tested also.  Neither one had any other symptoms.  They both were negative which I was so thankful.  WH's quarantine ended Friday since he had a negative test.  

We had to get a sweater for Milli since it's so cold and she doesn't have all her hair.  We have kept her bundled up and snuggling all week.  

I picked up chickfila on Saturday morning and they put it in a heart pan for Valentines.  How cute is that? 

It started snowing on Sunday morning.  Because we had been quarantined and iced in all last week and we knew we were about to be snowed in - we decided to break out and go to church.  A lot of churches closed but the one we have been visiting was open so we went.  Thankfully Scott isn't afraid to drive like I am.  It was such a fun morning to go to church in the snow.  

We decided to have Valentines lunch out since we were going to be locked up soon so we went to Chuy's.  I had to take a picture because I have NEVER seen the parking lot empty before.  It's always packed.  We were the only ones there for a while and it was delightful.  

What a sweet way to spend Valentines with the 4 people I love most (Scott not pictured) in the snow and going to church.  I will always remember that! 

News Nation on WGN did a story on my singles day!!! It was SUCH a fun story! You can watch it here

Here is Milli's other sweater.  ha! She is NOT loving the cold weather.  

Will Holden has a friend whose parents are from the North so they don't mind this weather so they drove his friend over for a play date yesterday.  It kept Will Holden busy! Our school district gave the kids an actual snow day yesterday.  Now that we can do school virtually - snow days are a thing of the past.  Which I'm glad we aren't having to make up 2 weeks in June now.  But I still love the joy of a real snow day! The girls and I are binge watching seasons 6 & 7 of "When Calls the Heart" on amazon.  

I think we got around 6-8 inches of snow and we have that much more expected to come tonight.  

I have friends in Texas who don't have power.  We have been worried about losing power here.  They have asked everyone to minimize what they are using.  Turn thermostats down, not do laundry or dishes (okay with every mom out there) and keep lights off.  So we are doing what we can here.  The sun came out today and it's supposed to warm up out of the negatives so hopefully that will help with the power situation.  

Praying for everyone who is out there without power or without a warm home.  There are agencies in most areas who help with homeless or vulnerable. Find one and give if you can!
