.oh the weather outside!.

Lastnight, we encountered our first real snow here in Nashville.  Well, actually it first started off as sleet and rain, then turned into ice and snow.  Now it wasn't like we got 2 feet of snow (more like 2 inches), but still, it managed to cover the ground nicely.  Ice and all.  Ha!  The sun is coming out now.  The ice that has formed on the bare tree limbs outside are glistening like diamonds!  So pretty!!  What does a girl do when it's nice and chilly (and apparently sparkly) outside?  She makes hot chocolate.  Hey!  Why not top it off with some whipped cream and a candy cane!  Mmm. . . addicting. . . 

Well it looks like there are only 13 days left until Christmas arrives.  We have had "The Polar Express" playing on the DVD since Saturday as it has become Aisie's favorite movie.  There are gifts to be wrapped, more cards to send out, gingerbread cookies to bake, hot chocolate with peppermint sticks to consume. . . yes, I would say that it's definitely looking a lot like Christmas!!  Hope you and yours have a cozy weekend!
