We got our Christmas tree on Saturday. Sonny picked out it out and it's the largest tree we've ever had. The trunk barely fits in the stand and the star at the top touches the ceiling. But it's a beaut and Sonny is very proud of it. Did I mention it only cost $15?!
We're pretty simple when it comes to tree trimmings. No blinking lights, tinsel or fuzzy garland. Many of the ornaments were made by me years ago, and you can tell when you inspect them closely. Luckily, pictures on the Internet are more forgiving.
This is what we woke up to on Sunday morning. It's not so much the snow that's remarkable. Portland gets one or two days of snow a year, although they say this is supposed to last all week. More interesting is the temperature. The highs these next couple of days will be just below freezing, and the lows will be in the teens (something like -10 C!!). That's cold for us. Who wants to go out in that? Luckily today is a snow day, which means a free a day off for kids and some other people.
Clearly a useless endeavor, but Sonny had fun nonetheless. I'll have to remember to get Hubby a snow shovel for Christmas. I'm sure he'll be thrilled.
Who wants to bet it's going to be another snow day tomorrow?
