24 hours to go...

Are you snowed in? We sure are! But, did that stop us from making a trip to Walmart this morning? No way. We had to venture out in this mess to get some essentials for little Ell-bell, but it wasn't too bad. The worst part is getting both kiddos ready for the snowy weather. Don't worry though, we were quickly back in our PJ's when we got home...not going out again today, that's for sure!
Carter was definitely ready for his nap today and couldn't wait to turn on those Wiggles.

He was also sporting his new Carhartts today! Thanks to Memaw and Papaw -- he is a "working man" today. Thankfully, we are working inside today...hope Daddy, Papaw, and Uncle Adam are working inside too.
And Miss E...she is growing, and is finally able to wear some of her really cute headbands! Although, she did not like this one much today.

You might be wondering about the title of my post today. Well, it is officially 24 hours before Ella will get her last pair of casts taken off and we could not be more excited! We are decorating her casts later on today {will post a picture} and she is well on her way to freedom. In honor of this, I am posting the top 5 reasons we will NOT miss the casts.

Top 5 Reasons We Will NOT Miss the Casts
1. We get to have a "normal" bath now!
2. Ella will be able to move her legs however she wants.
3. Nasty diapers make stains on the casts, no more stains!
4. Ella will be able to wear her "baby legs" or leg-warmers.
5. Ella is one step closer to perfect feet.
I cannot say enough about how thankful we are that Ella has such wonderful doctors and nurses to care for her. This is just a minor bump in the road for Ella, but we hope that we can be a witness to someone and share our testimony in the future. God is so good to us, please don't take his blessings for granted...
{Posting later today about Valentine's Day. Design Mom has some great ideas!}
