Wintery Things

Hope everyone is staying warm out there! We're having an uncharacteristically long wintery storm...the news stations refer to it as, "The Arctic Blast." While I find that slightly on the extreme side, it has been cold and snowy! It's beautiful and definitely making it feel more like Christmas!

Christmas Tree

We spent about 2 hours at the tree farm trying to find the perfect one....I think there were just too many trees to choose from so it was hard to decide!

We were losing daylight and it was starting to we settled on this one. Chris cut it down, he's such a man. :)

We brought it home on the roof of my car. I have no idea what we were thinking but we made it! After finding the right place for it (we rearranged the living room about 5 times, and ended up sticking with our original layouot) we hung the most important ornament..... GO VIKES!

Last Weekend

We went wine tasting in the beautiful Willamette Valley last weekend. Every Thanksgiving and Memorial Day weekends all of the wineries have big shin digs with live music, gourmet food and of course amazing wine-including some exclusive tastings just for the weekend. We went with our lovely friends and neighbors, Ryan and Allison.

I am currently in the middle of the end of the term rush but am surviving. One more test to go and I'm free until '09! '09 seems so far away to me still but I'm sure it will be here along with a fun filled winter term sooner than I expect.

Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
