superbowl and snow

It's quite ironic that the last time I blogged it was snowing, and what do ya's snowing again!  It hasn't snowed this much since I've lived in Arkansas and it seems strange to be out of school so many days for "snow days"...that was never heard of in Texas!  I had no idea it was going to snow.  My phone rang at 5:30 this morning with a recording from the principal that school had been closed for the day.  I told Matt that was school was cancelled due to weather and we both hopped out of bed to look out the window.  About 3:00 today I got the call that school was closed tomorrow so I guess I'll have another free day! 

We had two of our couple friends over for the Super Bowl yesterday.  Matt and I went in to Little Rock yesterday to visit our friends in the hospital who had a baby on Saturday night (welcome to the world little Fisher Holt Thaxton!) and stopped by WalMart on the way home to pick up food for our little get together. Here's my messy countertop during all the cooking and preparing.

I really had intentions of taking all these step-by-step pictures of the goodies I made, but we all have good intentions.  Our menu consisted of cheeseburgers/hamburgers, cheese dip, tortilla green chile rollups, and fruit and dip.  Since it was a small gathering we didn't really want/need that much food. 

The girls weren't too interested in the first half of the game so we pulled out Scrabble.  Matt and I are on a Scrabble kick...not that we have ever been on a boardgame kick, but since we've started playing Words with Friends on our iphones we have gotten pretty competitive.  Mom bought Matt the new special edition Scrabble plus Scrabble Dictionary for part of his birthday gift as a joke of his competitive nature!  He kicked my butt - 350 to 150 on Saturday night. 

Brea was very focused...and won.

Annnd of course I had to post pictures of the snow!  This is our patio table on the backporch this morning.

I convinced Matt to take me on a snow ride at the farm.  He thought I was crazy, but I wanted to enjoy the snow and the farm is so big and wide that the snow goes on for miles!  It was beautiful :)

The rest of my day was spent taking pictures of products for the shop to put on the new website.  I'm trying to get it all perfect for the big reveal at the end of February/beginning of March.  I figure the farmer and I will stay in tonight with a fire.  I might have to make some hot chocolate and turn on a movie...oh wait, it's Monday's 24 and Bachelor night!  I'm all messed up with not going to school. 

Hope you all have a good week...I'm looking forward to my class's Valentine's Day party on Friday and Matt's birthday on Friday!  My parents are coming up Friday night to celebrate his birthday and I have a feeling Mom and I will spend Saturday doing some shopping :)
