Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

(It's been awhile since I updated, but today it's a double entry to make up for it :))

Today is our first big snowfall of the season, and it made for a wonderful day indoors getting into the Christmas spirit. We wrapped presents, baked cookies, and finished writing papers. (Okay, the first two were me, and that last one was just J, but whatever...) We also got our first pictures of the house in the snow!!

This is what happens when you forget to turn off the flash... Check out the HUGE snowflakes!

Christmas lights in the snow

And, just for fun, a little something that made me laugh today.
(Make sure to turn on the volume on your computer...)

That was just the beginning of the snow... I'm not going to go outside, but here's the view from our back door...
That's 7 inches, folks. And, that's on the porch, close to the awning.
Thank goodness it's the weekend. :)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

Only 10 more days till Christmas!
With finals and a training classes wrapping up for the year, it's been pretty busy around here, but we're starting to wind down a bit and getting into the Christmas spirit.

Some sights around our house:

Dining Room

For a house blog, we haven't really done a whole lot of posting house pictures, have we? :)
Here's some for any lingering readers....

Sadly, we have no before pictures of the dining room. (I know. You all are SO disappointed!) Try to envision the yuckiness in your head: like the living room (see post below this one), ugly old dining room table, an oddly placed curio, and cat hair galore. Oh yeah, and more doilies.

After of Dining Room (set for Thanksgiving)
(that ceiling fan is on its way out... we just need to find a fixture we like)

Here's what it normally looks like:

Living Room

(thank the lord, the doilies are gone!)
this isn't the best picture, but this is the same corner our TV is in...

Almost after:

there's a 42" flat screen there now... Merry Christmas to us! :)

Future plans: end tables :)
