…the FIRST snow of the year

4 12 2010

the only snow of the year i like (i missed the first teaser on tuesday… it was gone before i got home!)!!!!

i woke up to this this AM: which then looked like this outside…so, after taking duke for a little walk, it was time to get to my car…had to do a little scraping, but it wasn’t too bad…even dukey likes it!!! (i think because he doesn’t have to look for grass to potty….ha!)

I finally found the time to get to work on my new knitting project… it’s been quite awhile, but it’s like riding a bike!!! and oh, so relaxing after a rough morning while sitting on a plane to arkansas…..

…christmas decorations

30 11 2010

since it is now officially christmas season… you know what that means… time to decorate the house!!! it’s one of both mark and i’s favorite time of year… nothing like the living room being lit up by those white lights!

so this weekend… we celebrated the season with a bottle of our favorite champagne…got the ornaments out of storage….even duke was interested and ready to participate!and put together our mini fake tree… while mark sprayed his xmas tree scented febreeze to get us in the mood (he’s allergic to pine). i love seeing it in the living room… and the character it brings to our house!
