and I LOVE it. The high today was 37 and it's supposed to get down to 22 tonight! There have even been flurries the past few days. Woo hoo! I love winter and everything that comes with it. One of my favorite things about winter is being able to curl up in a sweatshirt and jammie pants, and still be comfortable enough to cuddle up under a blanket.
I love baking cookies and drinking hot cocoa. Well, the kids and husband drink the hot cocoa...I have coffee.
I don't do a lot of decorating for Christmas, but I love putting out all my snowmen around the house. I am looking forward to getting help decorating the tree this year. We have a tall (9ft), skinny-ish artificial tree that goes in the corner of the living room. We always put it up the weekend of Thanksgiving. I love having it up early, but I take it down the day or two right after Christmas. Once it's over...it's over.
We don't put outdoor lights up, but I LOVE driving around looking at the lights. We have already found a few houses with lights up!
I love playing in the snow with the kids and watching the guys drive the tractor around shoveling snow from the driveway.
Then there's a little something called Christmas Break! As much as I love teaching and going to work everyday, those 2 weeks off are so fantastic. It's a great time to relax after the holidays, get some bargains at after Christmas sales, and just chill out with the fam.
What's your favorite thing about winter? The snow? The tree? The fact that it will be over soon?!
