Snow Day!!!

Gotta love some SNOW in Louisiana! Our school board dismissed school an hour early yesterday and canceled classes for today. Combine that with a holiday on Monday for President's day and you have a PARTY. It is a nice and welcomed break. We welcomed daddy home today. He has been taking care of Papaw since Monday and we were glad to see him drive in the driveway earlier today.

Our snowman we built just before nap time the time they got up from their naps most all of the snow was really starting to melt.

Big Mama's makeshift sled.....didn't work so well but they were entertained for about 5 minutes.

About 8:30 this morning at my parent's house. Snow was EVERYWHERE!! The kids really don't have any proper clothing for snow but we made due.
Wish I had a picture of our house from this morning but I don't. This was yesterday about 4pm. Before the inches of snow came.
Posing for me by the bulldog.
This week has been long and I am so thankful that I have parents to help me in time of need. It is hard enough being a temporary single parent but add in the element of a full time job and it is just tough. Let me also add in there that I have a WONDERFUL supportive principal that works with me any way that she can. And I am so glad Matt has been able to spend time with his dad and take care of things that need to be done. It's been extremely tough on him and we certainly appreciate all of the sweet messages, e-mails, phone calls, etc. As for Papaw he has chosen not to do chemo and they are at the point where hospice has been called. I took the kids over Bossier Wednesday after school and I think it was a little much for the situation but I know Papaw was glad they were there. Please continue to pray for Matt's entire family. I'll stop there but just know that we really appreciate your prayers.
