I had to make an emergency run to the store for Gatorade Tuesday night. Bubee got sick and I had no intentions of spending 2-3 days with a sick child and no Gatorade. I got to Publix seconds before they locked the doors. Praise God, they let me grab a couple of things, so I got the essentials: Gatorade for Bubee, Instant Oatmeal for Rosey Posey (Plus if the power went out we could easily heat water on the gas stove), and Little Debbies for Meme and I :P. Yes, if I was going to be trapped in the house for 2-3 days with kids I was going to have some chocolate!
Thursday night everything changed into real snow and we woke up Thursday morning to some thick FUN snow.
All my garden supplies are buried.
Bubee got to join us on Thursday after being sick. We even got Little Lady out for some snow fun!

Little Lady and Papaw. Papaw LOVES his Santa gloves for the snow!

After a long fun day in the snow, there is nothing like a cup of Meme's Hot Chocolate:
The crazy thing is that even though it has been in the 50s and 60s the past 3 days, there is still piles of snow here and there. I stopped by the grocery store today and there was still a pile of dirty snow in the middle of the parking lot. Friends from the north: how long does this stuff hang around?!?
On another note, I have finally set out to accomplish a long time goal of playing the Violin. My eventual goal is to play fiddle. So this past weekend I got myself a basic violin. Wish me luck on my journy!
