Neighbors, Snow & Sewing...

The snow continued to fall late into the night last night. I think we got around 6 inches...which is a pretty big deal in Arkansas!

Our next door neighbor (who happens to live in my dream house!) brought banana nut bread over this morning! How sweet is that? And I LOVE the handmade wrapping!

MOST of our neighbors are great :o)

Hillary Ashton was ready to head outside as soon as she woke up...luckily she agreed to wait until after lunch to let the temperature warm up a bit.

She LOVED riding around on her sled...I was SO glad Daddy was here to take turns pulling her! That is a tough job. IMG_0317
It was sooooo worth it to hear her giggling non-stop! However, a four wheeler would have come in handy..haha!
