Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

We had grand plans for this weekend, but they were frustrated by sickness and bad weather. So we stayed in town and had an even better time than we bargained for. We got Friday off from work and school, as the NYCC campus was closed due to a big snow storm. Saturday was my birthday so we ventured out for breakfast and a Christmas tree. We went to a local Christmas tree farm and cut one down. We were in snow up to our knees, but had such a good time!

And as a present to me, the Duke basketball team decimated Xavier. Thanks guys :)

We had another snow day on Sunday - church was canceled due to the wind blowing around the freshly fallen snow - and making it impossible to see the roads. We stayed home, decorated and made sugar cookies.

All in all, a wonderful 3-day weekend! Finals are over for Cory and it was wonderful to have the entire weekend to spend time with him, without studying and papers looming over us. We're all ready for Christmas and can't wait to see my family!

I didn't even know about your birthday! Thank goodness our Blue Devils came through and gave you a good gift. Way to go guys!

Your tree looks great. I sort of miss being able to cut down our own tree - back in Alaska we didn't even need a permit! But artificial is better for little people. No pine needles in toes, no spilled water...

Glad you had a nice weekend. Happy belated birthday!

I've been wondering how you two have been with all this weather. Glad to hear you can still scale the snow to find a tree. We miss and love you two, take care and Merry Christmas. ZJ
