yesterday we found our perfect family tree. huge and blue and a little bit wild.  now it is living in our house, (and hopefully won't fall over the day after christmas and crush everything like last year.)

tonight we decorate!

this month is already a good one.
i woke up to a dusting of snow,
 my sister and friend are flying in on saturday,
 my cousin is expecting her little baby anyday now,
and my collection of trees has grown to 4... 2 still to be put up.

pumpkin patch

finding the right pumpkin is important

it was a tough decision, but i think we did the right thing.

then, we celebrated with some head cut out pictures:
the happiest crow.
