On Christmas afternoon sleet began coming down steadily and quickly covered the trees and the roads. The airport was shut down which sadly prevented my sister from catching her flight to our house. That evening the sleet turned to snow and we were treated to a rare White Christmas. The next morning we woke up to this beautiful sight.
Our front porch.
Trees bent over the road in front of our house.
Central Arkansas received 6-12" of snow... Louie was thrilled and spent most of the next few days outside.
The plum tree in the middle of our backyard had died this past year. The weight of snow and ice caused the whole brittle tree to fall over and snap off at the base.
Katie enjoyed the snow too, but mostly wanted to be outside when we were. She tends to want to be close to her people at all times.
"I wish every day could be cold and snowy. It's so comfy out here" - Louie
Natalie's first snow
She was concerned about getting her boots "dirty", but we soon convinced her that snow is clean and fun to play in.
We made our first snowman with great difficulty since the snow was not the type that sticks together well.
A very snowy Happy Haus
We were so fortunate that we didn't lose power as 260,000 other people in Arkansas did. We had already had our power outage turn right before Christmas.
