Christmas Trees

We can't have a real tree at the apartment so when I get back home, we're going to buy a small artificial table top tree but who needs a real tree with these right outside the window? I bet we got another 5-6 inches of snow today and they're calling for more Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. I'm going to hate missing it.

Deb gets to sleep in tomorrow - she doesn't leave until 7AM and since my cab will be here at 4:30AM to take me to the airport I'm sure I won't sleep at all tonight. We're both very excited about the trip to VA and our family reunion. We have a large family - there are 6 kids plus our families and we have some extended family coming too - aunts, uncles, cousins. Of course, Mom will be there too and it just so happens that the actual day of the reunion is her birthday.

My camera is packed and I bought a spare battery and extra memory cards. There will be lots of photos taken!

Deb and I are going to lunch with Vicki on Sunday after the reunion - how fun is that?
I'll be gone a week and my internet use will be spotty so I probably won't be posting my usual 1-2 x per day.

I don't miss shoveling the snow or driving in it ~ but I do miss scenes like this one... there's nothing prettier than a fresh snowfall (especially when you're indoors, warm and cozy).

Wow, Mary, Deb and Vicki, three of my favorite bloggers and snow. I am so jealous.

Love those beautiful trees in your "yard." I also love hearing you enjoy the snow. As a transplant to Minnesota, you could easily be complaining about it. As a native Minnesotan, I'm glad to hear you liking it!
