Winter Wonderland...almost.

In Arkansas right now, it is 26 degrees and there is a solid layer of ice on every surface outside. It's COLD. And everything has been cancelled today. Including all base activities (so Shannon & Chad got to stay home), and school is out for the little ones. So, we decided to spend our day doing 'snow day' activities such as watching movies (Santa Claus 3 is in right now), cooking a hot stew for lunch, making homemade hot chocolate, and we had a delicious apple bake for breakfast. It's a great day of lounging. It actually looks like it snowed outside, but it didn't. It's just yucky, have to stay home, dangerous road-ICE. Sucks, but we're making the best of it.

Cassandra's graduation dinner at Capeo is tonight and we're really hoping it works out! I got to spend the day with her yesterday and it was a lot of fun. We went to eat lunch at a Japanese Hibachi/Sushi grill called Sakura. It was yummy. Then we went to Wal-mart to grab some special ingredients to make Christmas goodies. We spent the rest of the afternoon making Puppy Chow (it's soooo sinful & addicting) and also some white & milk chocolate pretzels. Delicioso! It was fun stuff & we got lots of loving from our hubbies who love baked goods. :)

That's pretty much all that's going on with me right now. Hope everyone is surviving the cold, wherever you are!
