My family and I had a great weekend - and with Thanksgiving behind us we decided to go and get our Christmas Tree!  Lex’s 2nd Christmas - but last year at this time she couldn’t even roll over - let alone enjoy the festivities!

While making room for our new tree we were moving and cleaning out Olivia’s curio cabinet.  Funny enough, Lex took the opportunity to crawl right in and then give kisses through the glass.  I know, too adorable!

Checking out the sites…

It’s chilly but awesome out!

Then, off to get the tree - and it didn’t take long at all.  We were in and out in less than 15 minutes!  It was so nice to get home and put it right up.  Lex even helped decorate - then of course she decided to take off the ornaments she put on… but that’s okay.  Hope everyone enjoys this season as much as I do!

Title: Snow Comes to the Farm
Author: Nathaniel Tripp
Publisher: Candlewick Press

I love books that set a tone, give off a mood - and this is certainly one of those books. It reminded me of a former Book of the Month called Owl Moon - but this tells a set of brothers who go out in the woods waiting for the big snow to come. Reading it, I was waiting for the worse to come - waiting for something bad to happen. Happily, it did not - instead what you get is a sweet story that makes you wish for snowy days!
