Cold! Winter! Snow!

Since Thanksgiving, we have had some cool things happen. First, Jason started working at a new job. He is now doing bigger and better things. I am SO proud of him! He is now using public transportation to get into DC everyday. My little commuter! And speaking of jobs, the organization I work for got written up as one of the best 50 places to work in Washingtonian magazine. This actually happened before the wedding but I'm just getting around to telling y'all now. My bad. Even cooler – my parents' company got written up as well!

We have also had our first snow (!!!)


and therefore our first family snow photo of the year.


We're supposed to get a ton of snow starting tonight – hooray! So we might take more pictures of that.

We got the Bells' Christmas tree a few weekends ago – the day after our first snow. Man was it MUDDY. So, going with tradition, we carried Rufus the entire time again. This was last year:


This time Jason took a turn.



He started falling asleep. Life is tough for this little guy.


The search begins.


And then Jason finds one! Here are Terry and Linda with their tree right before we cut 'er down!


Ta-da! It’s magically on the car. A dude from the tree farm chucked it up there – literally.


And now the Christmas countdown begins!
