Last week, we got a little winter precipitation in our area, which is somewhat rare in South Arkansas. We were hoping for snow, but what we got was a wintry mix of sleet and freezing rain, with a very minimal amount of snow mixed in. Still, we had two snow days at home because school was cancelled, and even Matthew got to stay home with us. We had a fun few days of playing, and we never lost power so it was even that much more enjoyable.
This little girl was SO excited, even though it technically wasn't snow. As soon as we got outside, she immediately lay down to make a snow angel, and got ice and sleet all in her boots, so we had to come in and change socks and boots within 1 minute of being outside:

Oops! Somebody's mom nailed them in the face with a snowball:
She was literally beside herself with joy to get to play in this...that's how rare winter precipitation is for us!:
