Those are nice reminders of the spirit of this season.

Wow, you guys have that ridiculous weather too?? Our 26 mph wind chill makes it feel like -10 (still NOT too bad), which is what's showing on all the bank clocks because I'm weird enough to drive very slowly to Sam's Club. We have some sick people I'm going to make real chicken soup for = )

That is beautiful. Thanks for sharing that.
Is that a pic of your Christmas tree?
How cold is it up there? We're freezing but not getting any snow. I'd love to have some of that.
