Our Christmas tree hunt has begun…

xmastreehuntEvery year it is getting harder and harder to find a good real Christmas tree. I’m not sure why.. maybe weather changes… big storms sweeping through our area… who knows! Lucy is learning how to find the perfect tree, but on this day she was more interested in finding the perfect clover! That is pretty important too 🙂

Winter Storm: Athena…

Winter storm, Athena, barreled through New Jersey and the Northeast this week. More power outages, downed trees, winds, and this time SNOW.. about 7 inches to be exact. Its been a crazy 2 weeks here in NJ. Fingers crossed that this isn’t a preview of how rough our winter will be! 

The upside… the snow was beautiful first thing in the morning 🙂

Last winter…..

Here’s a photo from last winter. Surprisingly, I miss this. I miss the cold, and in some ways I miss the snow. Maybe not the 2+ feet we got at different times last year, but at least some snow this year would have been nice! (More photo ops! ) March just started and has come in like a lamb around here…. maybe the lion will show up by the end of the month?
