In the paper

I had to ask someone for a copy. We were in the paper Sunday.

Allergic Reaction

This morning, at dark thirty, I let Jamocha out of her kennel to pee and eat. 30 minutes we let her back in to find her in this condition.
What happened? No sign of bite marks or stings. She has hives. It's her first Spring...maybe allergic to a weed or grass or chemical someone put on their lawn.
Back in the kennel she went. On the way home from work I picked up Benadryl and went home. She looked much better but She will be on meds till she's more normal looking.

No one is happy today

This boy refused to even sit in the chair at the dentist today. I left work early, picked him up, and took him to the dentist (50 minute trip) and he shut down.
He has a baby molar that will not budge and an adult tooth coming in next to it trying to find room. They said if the baby doesn't finally fall out on it's own in the next 6 months, were looking at oral surgery :( I told him he couldn't swing today since he didn't cooperate.

Polar Plunge

We didn't miss the plunge this year, last year we missed because it was rescheduled due to lightning but we never got the memo.
First the athletes say the oath.
Canyon liked the frog team the best. They were staff from his doctor's office.
The cowboys tossed out chocolate coins.
Fist full of coins.
The Blues Brothers were entertaining.
They line up for the plunge.
They're in and they're out!
Canyon said he wants to plunge next year. If so, we will have to get a team together. Don't look at me.....toooo cold!!

Yes, that's correct. She owed a whole $1.
Welcome to the world girl.

Old Post Park

Headed to Old Post Park to see the snow there after lunch on our snow day. We got this weird image on the picture with mom and Canyon. There used to be a town here called Norristown when there was a pontoon bridge connecting Russellville side of the river to Dardanelle. Maybe a long lost soul got in the picture with us.
The wind coming off the river was chilly. Sahara wanted to stay in the car.

Snow Day Again

We got out early on Wednesday because we were expecting severe weather.  The schools (here anyway) kind of jumped the gun.  We had rain all day.  At 5ish it turned to sleet and at 8:30 we finally got our snow.  

Today, Thursday, I don't think there is a single school open in the state.

It was really windy too and was coming down sideways.

The next morning, after breakfast, we went out to check it's ability for snowman building.  Bummer, wont stick.  No snowman and it looks like only an inch or 2.

Malaki is just happy to watch the world in the window.  He doesn't care so much for this cold stuff sticking to him.

Jamocha on the other hand LOVES the snow.

She would bite it and chase what you throw and jump all over the place.


Canyon attempted a snow angel.  Not too bad for there not being much on the ground.

Poor Malaki, he gets balls of snow attached everywhere.

Our road.  It's snow on top of frozen sleet.  This road was not so bad, but the main road is more frozen and Sahara and I skated on it.

Looks like Sahara isn't going anywhere today.

We have sunshine the rest of the day and I don't think anymore in the forecast.  

Looks like business as usual tomorrow.  It sure didn't get to be as bad as they claimed it would.  Or we are just in that bubble again.

Woke up to white

Had this been a school day, it would have been cancelled again. It's not much, but check the road... And with only 2 sand trucks, only main roads and highways are sanded. snow or no, we're heading to Wally.  Dogs are out of food.

 Since Sahara and I got new phones, Canyon got mine :)I wiped everything off of it and then added new apps for him.  I found a great one for videos and he loves it!

 Sahara ordered a Razorback skin for the case. It looks so cool.  No mistaking its his now. (Although he still hands it back to me when he's done and says 'here, mama phone'.) I think he will get use to it soon eenough!

Snow Days

 Looks like another snow day. This guy is gonna need a warm bath every time he goes out. Look at all the snow stuck to him.
 It was the coldest snow we could remember. Couldn't stay out long, but the neighborhood dogs seemed to like it.
 Mom's work. 2 more days to make up.

Ice Day

Ice day! Of course this happens on a day all ready scheduled for my school to be out. But Sahara and Canyon got a special day. 
First thing when we woke up, throw on some jackets and check it out. 
Canyon and mom when we got the 'no school tomorrow' message last night.
