So, a week ago, my mom posted a video on facebook of a timehop back to 2 years ago.  It was a link to my blog and it was Emerson singing "Twinkle, twinkle"  when he was Lyla's age.  It melted my heart.  And it did something else too.  It made me actually miss blogging.

I think I originally gave up blogging almost a year ago because I started feeling like my motives were wrong in having a blog.  Was I wanting glory for myself?  Why would I have anything to share when I'm only in my 20's and haven't even had enough life experience to share my wisdom?  But when  looked back at my blog last week, it made me realize how full my blog was of sweet memories.  Even if I only get to blog once a month, that is better than nothing.  So, here goes!!

Arkansas FINALLY got a snow this winter!! If you know me at all, you know I am a huge fan of snow.  So, it felt so magical this morning to take the kids to the front window this morning first thing to see the pure, white, smooth snow covering everything.  It's so fun to see the wonder in their eyes when they see things like that.

One thing Caleb and I love about snow in Arkansas is that everything stops.  Everything gets cancelled.  In the busy culture we live in, it's nice for things to just stop and have a day at home as a family.  Caleb's job is so flexible that he will often just work from home on snow days :)  So, we get lots of family time.

Pancakes for breakfast, sledding with the neighbor kids, and a warm fire to welcome us back in.  It's been a sweet day. Happy Snow Day!!!
