Snow-pocolypse 2011

We have never seen this much snow in Arkansas...

Well....
I have never seen this much snow in Arkansas....

I found a picture of my dad measuring snow back when I was little and holding up four fingers for four inches.
I remember when mom took that picture because we thought it was CRAZY that we got four inches!!

Today .... six!
at least...some places more because the wind was blowing and it would get caught on our fence and such.

I have been around for 26 years and I never remember having this many snow days...all i have to say is THANK GOD that he put me working with kids in a preschool..so i get to have snow days too!!!

I do pray for the people that have to get out and go to work...my husband is one of them...very scary!

So today is snow day number 5 ..i think
so Lyla and I went out and made the most of it...because I figured our Public School System would MAKE us go tomorrow NO MATTER WHAT or they wouldn't finish school until mid-July!!





We had a lot of fun..
We couldn't make a snow man because I couldn't get the snow to pack...but we did make snow angels..and a snow hill!!

Enjoy your snow days!
Stay warm!

Life Inspired

So I really need to be cleaning my house..doing some laundry or something
I keep telling myself I will when Ms Lyla goes down for a nap..but we all know when she falls asleep..i am two mintues behind her...

anyway..while she has been watching Mickey Mouse .. I have been playing on the computer.

I found Becky Higgins Digital Project Life..and I am so thrilled!!
I absolutely love how easy she makes it ...all you have to do is snap pictures and write about them.

Great way to keep track of memories!

I have got mine started..and I am so excited about it.
She has a scrapbook kit..with the papers and all that...but I didn't want to order it..because I don't have time to shave my legs...more or less sit down and actually scrapbook.
So the Digital version is easy cheesy for me...I just upload my pictures...which go quick by the way...throw them into the designated spots...write a few words...Done!

Then when you get it all finished...you can order your whole book for $99!!
It gets printed for you...all in a nice book..and shipped to you...
Now how much easier can that be..
I'm in love!

On Becky Higgins website she had an inspiring Life video to let people know that life doesn't have to be "exciting" to take pictures everyday...take pictures of everyday things...laundry (which I swear I am fixing to do), your fave resteraunt, your child's fave toy...anything...anything in your life...those little things are the things we forget the fastest...so take a picture of it..throw it in a Project Life book..and remember it forever!!

Here is the video...I have to post it!!



I hope you are inspired...and if I find out how to share my Project Life book..I will...cause I am pretty dang proud of it!!

I hope you all stay warm...because in Arkansas...it is FREEZING!! literally

ok.now off to start laundry...
ha ha




EDIT:
here is the link to my book..
Go check it out...
It isnt' finished..and I am still playing..so don't judge me...
But i hope you start your own..so we can Project Life together!!
