It started snowing yesterday just as school was getting out. By 5 there was a nice cover. I didn't think it would be enough to cancel school today but sure enough we got the call from the superintendent of the board of education for our school district at 5:30 this morning...No School Today. So, the kids and I are home watching Sleeping Beauty and eating popcorn still in our jammies. Mallory took this picture with my phone earlier. It's the view from our front door. Are you with me in thinking they don't do much down hill sledding here:)

Our dear friends Martha and Wesley and Yvonne were here over the weekend. We went to the original Lambert's for the first time since moving here. There is a Lambert's in Foley AL near Gulf Shores that is very popular with the tourists. Well the first one is right here 20 minutes away from us in Sikeston MO. We knew we would be going there every time we had visitors so we were holding out until this past weekend. I have lots of great pix from our friends' visit but will have to post them when I have more time. Until then, here's a great one of MIchael catching one of their famous throwed rolls.

These pix are from the kids' Halloween parties at school. Michael wore his Spiderman costume and Mallory her Wonder Woman. I dug out some scraps to be a 60s girl. I really don't like the 60s and what all those hippies stood for but I was out of ideas and time when party day came around...

These pix were just uploaded from a camera we rarely use so they are old but wanted to post anyway. They are from the East Prairie first game of the season kick-off party. They sell these shirts which get you dinner at the kick off party and then also in the game. I had never seen that before and thought it was a neat way to have most people at the game wearing the team colors and same shirt.

Mallory wanted home made chocolate chip cookies to take to school on her birthday so I was making those the same night as the sleepover cakes! We took a gallon of milk and cups big enough so the kids could dip their cookies in the milk. Paul walked over from the church and I walked over from my class room to be there when they sang and had the treats in her class. It's nice to be right there for things like this!

We went to our first East Prairie Trunk or Treat last night. The churches all combine to do one big event in downtwon EP. The kids had a big time and seemed to enjoy themselves. These costumes were just some that we had around the house. I like it that they don't care that much about their costumes at this point.
