White Christmas!!

Some snow scenes from our apartment. The scenery may not be as pretty as other places, but there's something about snow that makes even the most ordinary things seem magical.

And some things are.... fun!

Today Jim took the ice and snow off the van, put chains on the tires, and we finally got out for a drive. We were feeling closed in at our little apartment. So it was nice to go to Kim's for awhile.

Kim and Andy's cars were buried in snow.

Here's a house that I think is pretty. Maybe next year I'll have pictures of our own house to put here, but in the meantime, I'll enjoy seeing others.

Everyone have a wonderful Christmas, and if you have snow, enjoy the beauty. If you don't have snow where you are, I hope you enjoyed these pictures.

We don't have to dream of a white Christmas this year. 'Looks like we'll have one! (Of course this means that some of our Christmas plans have had to be cancelled, which is sad, but I still love the snow!)

Apartmentalized Christmas

I really thought I'd be okay with no Christmas decor this year. But I was wrong!! No. I do need at least a little Christmas here. So today I went and bought not one, but THREE Christmas trees. Now, doesn't this look nice?

Oh, and since I didn't have any of my Christmas clothes here, when we were down in Eugene yesterday, we went to our house in JC and dug through some things and got some of them. I knew where they were. We just had to move some things to get to them.
I feel better. Christmas can come now!!
