Big snow!!

We got 8" of snow on Christmas day! Since we got rain first that froze on the trees, and then the snow there was trees snapping everywhere! Some are going to be without power for a week.. James has been begging for snow for weeks, so he was super excited to see so much! We had to go outside and play in it a bit :)

"It's the most wonderful time of the year..."

Ahh... I love this time of year, Christmas decor up, great coffee and hot chocolate weather, sweaters, warm baby snuggles, Christmas movies, goody baking, etc..

Our mantel:

Love our stockings! Can't wait to fill them with all kinds of fun stuff :)

Our tree! Makes it soo cozy in our living room! James always asks me to turn on the lights first thing when we come out in the morning!

Our trip to the zoo!

On Saturday we took a fun trip to the zoo! Our friends Emily and Ian stayed with us for a couple days and went with us.. It was a chilly day so some of the animals were in hiding but we still got to see some!

Emily, Ian and baby Nora :)


Mama Bear

This is the cheesy grin she does when she sees the camera!

Harvest Brunch

Saturday we hosted our 2nd annual Harvest Brunch! We had tons of food and fun! Here are some pics:

 Pa made these wonderful boxes for me! I am going to change the filler out for each season :)

 One of the tables

 Pumpkin Roll! Yum! Thankfully I made 2, so I have leftovers to have with my coffee every day :)

Mulled Cider! Love this stuff!

Other table

Cinnamon rolls with vanilla and caramel icing

This was taken before all of the food was out.. There was a lot more!

Carved mini pumpkins filled with mums

Found this cute guy at Hobby Lobby and wrote some of the menu on it!

It was a lot of fun to plan and prepare and I look forward to next year!!
