Arkie Mama: Christmas ’09

We had a wonderful holiday, but I sure am grateful for a long weekend of relaxation!

Someone would rather eat the frosting than use it for decorating.

My stepdaughter was supposed to come over Christmas Eve, but all the flooding prevented that from happening. Finally, Christmas afternoon, more roads had opened, allowing her to eat dinner with us.

Others were not so fortunate, and spent Christmas Eve and day in evacuation shelters. This was Arkansas’ wettest year since 1882. It’s a record we’d rather not break anytime in the next several decades, believe me.
