"Vermont must be beautiful this time of year...all that snow"

We finally got some snow! Hooray! I'm hoping it'll stick around this year. last year it was just cold. Cold sucks without some snow to make it worth it! The boy is definitely his father's son. He was out there for 2 1/2 hours and still didn't want to come in. Crazy Alaskan blood. We loved watching the falling flakes most of the day Saturday and building a snowman in the storm.


We also hit up the Festival of Trees, our family tradition. I've been going since I was a kid and hubby and I worked as volunteers there our first year of marriage and have gone every year (except right after the boy was born) since. Our 2 favorites this year were the Nightmare Before Christmas tree img_0924.jpg and the Darth Vadar tree img_0925.jpg. Otherwise, we've decided we like the smaller trees and wreaths better, they're generally more creative. Despite missing dad like crazy and a rough pregnancy, I'm getting into the holiday spirit. Snow helps. I hope we get more!


  1. Ha! That snowman looks like Dana!

  2. You need to make it down here and see the festival of lights in Spanish fork and the pond town Christmas lights in Salem...great way to liven up the grinch. Well at least it works for me!
