When we moved to Minnesota earlier this year it was to a chorus of "Ohhh, just you wait until the end of October!"  Then it became "Ohh just a couple more weeks and it's ON!"  Now it's "This is unseasonably warm.  You brought this weirdness from Arizona, didn't you?"

The only snow we've seen so far has been a tiny sprinkling on Friday.  The kids were beside themselves.  So was I to be honest.  There was only enough to dip your fingertips in but they were floored nonetheless.   We can't wait for a real snowfall!!

We also bought our tree this week.  This is the first year I've had an artificial tree since my grandmother used to buy them when I was 11.  I've learned a couple of things so far:  
  • These guys get needles EVERYWHERE
  • The vacuum is not the best tool for picking them up  (gotta fix that today)
  • Trees look at LOT smaller when they are wrapped in that string stuff
  • My cat likes to sleep under the tree

 I'm not decorating it until Friday when I lug out the massive decoration boxes.  We aren't going to be here for the holidays so I'm going to enjoy my decor as long as I can!

I dusted off my lensbaby on Saturday as part of a video review that I've been working on.  I had my sweater, my husband's heavy jacket, my hat, gloves, scarf thing, boots, and jeans and I was STILL freezing!

Is the air in Minnesota supposed to hurt your face...?
