let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

Woke up to a frightfully chipper four year-old tugging at me, "Woo-hoo, no school to-day-ay...let's have an adventure!! Woo-hoo!" Several lazy hours and 2 bowls of Cheerios later, we found ourselves at a Christmas tree farm (a real Christmas tree farm!!) with a cart and saws and... Are we really cutting down a tree??! We found a beautiful, full, gorgeous-smelling tree and hauled it back to the car... The fun didn't stop there... Back home, lights were strewn, ornaments unpacked... little by little, our home became Christmas-y (!) and I found myself breathing a little easier. We chopped down a tree under cloudy, gray skies...shivering, without any complaints or whining. Miraculous. Maybe things are looking up?
