The Hills Are Alive....With Mountains of Snow!

Where do I start for this post? The weather is so unpredictable in this state of good ole Arkansas. Yesterday it was in the 60's and today it is sleeting, snowing, and low temps. Crazy. Here's the first day of the long expected weekend.
 It's kind of a joke around here, but every time there's winter storm watches or warnings, the bread and milk are nowhere to be found in the grocery stores. Luckily, I went to the grocery a few days ago and picked milk, bread, and the white fudge oreos. HA! I'm being real here, y'all!
I just love the cute lil Sunbeam girl, by the way.
 It started sleeting later this morning and roads were quickly covered in sleet. UGH!
 I stayed home and enjoyed our Chrismas music box and vanilla snowflake candle. Love Bath and Body Works candles so much.
 I also boiled these wonderful ingredients together in 4 cups of water and then just simmered it on low for most of the day. It. smelled. di-vine!!!
 MMM! The smell of Christmas. Practically perfect in every way.
The Smell of Christmas recipe:
1 orange, sliced
4 cinnamon sticks
2 Tablespoons cinnamon sticks
4 bay leaves
1/2 cup cranberries
1 lemon, sliced
4 cups water
Bring all to a boil. Turn heat to low and let simmer.
Later today, Russell and I played Disney Scene It together. I won again!
 We had yummy poppyseed chicken for dinner. So so good!
 Last time we checked outside, we had five inches of snow/sleet. Wow!
 It's a little deep!
 Our house
Right now, I am snuggled up and watching The Sound of Music starring Carrie Underwood. I am loving it! Russell is such a great husband to sit here with me and watch it! Ha! It's been a good first day of snowmageddon. The hills are alive with mountains of snow. Right?
Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God's wrath remains on them. John 3:36

It started here around 10 yesterday, and been going in some form or fashion practically ever since. (I'm in SW MO).

That poppseed chicken looks SO good! And I'm curious, can you drink this lovely cranberry mixture, or is it just for the lovely smell of it all?

I hope you are feeling well and staying in =)

Love you precious girl ~~ dawn
