A few more pictures...

This picture doesn't do justice to the beauty of glistening snow but i love it when the ground looks like it's covered in sparkly glitter!

Would you believe that we have frozen goldfish in our little pond beneath all this pretty white stuff? I bet they're ready for a big thaw too! lol...yes they'll start swimming again :)

I wonder what she was thinking as she looked at her world covered in white? The brightness of it all seemed to scare her a bit at first. She was shakey as she adjusted but really enjoyed herself. So much that she left my window covered in spit from raspberries. My sweet, sweet girl :)

I wanted to bundle her up and let her get out in it but she had been so sick that i didn't want to take a chance.

This is more than a week after the snow and ice hit Southern Indiana and Kentucky. Millions were without power for weeks afterward with both areas being declared States of Emergency. Trees and power lines wore thick, heavy coats of ice. Thank God, our power never failed!

Here's Emmaleigh trying to lick an icicle (though it looks like she's gonna stick it up her nose, lol)

Emmaleigh LOVES making snow angels! This was day two of our snow and ice storm at the end of January. Six inches of snow fell, followed by three inches of ice on the first day. By the next morning we had four more inches of snow and another blanket of ice. With tempertures lingering below zero, the white stuff hung around for two weeks. Good times!

Wow, those are neat pictures. I wish we had a little of that here. It has been in the 70's for the past few days- a warm winter. We are praying for Karlie and for your whole family. I'm sorry things have been so rough for you guys lately. You are not alone about driving around in the middle of the night. I have done it too, several times and sometimes you will just do anything to not have to hear them cry. Thinking of you and it has to get better, right?

I am four years old. Last year i was diagnosed with Rett Syndrome. Rett is the most physically disabling neurological disorder on the Autism Spectrum. I can't speak or use my hands anymore but i'm a very happy girl and my blue eyes speak volumes! Typically, Rett only affects females and strikes between 6-18 months. Less than 4,500 girls have been diagnosed in the US but many have been missed. Currently there is NO CURE but researchers are working hard and Rett was recently reversed in mice!!! Please join us in supporting funding for a cure. Please visit and to donate. I was born healthy and developed as i should have. I could roll over, sit up, crawl, play with toys and i could even talk a little but then things started changing. My hands stopped working and i lost intrest in almost everything. Instead of laughing, i cried. My walking improved, but my words went away. I stopped playing with toys, i couldn't feed myself, i couldn't even scratch my own nose anymore. My world was changing around me. I knew it, but was helpless against it. This is my Rett Syndrome journey. Please donate $$$ to unlock my world and so many others!
