but the fire is so delightful, and since we've no place to go, let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!  i haven't had a chance to come up for air in about a month or so. we're still in the midst of designing christmas cards, last minute shoots and client orders but the weekends are for the family. we finally went and cut down our christmas tree! we do it every year and the boys just love it! there's nothing like the smell of a real tree in the house and i even have a hard time buying artificial wreaths. it's kinda like fresh flowers, i just love how organic, fresh and wonderful they smell and feel. it's been a delightful snowy sunday. we've been making gingerbread houses, trimming the tree, on-line shopping, watching christmas movies and all the while the snow has been falling while we cuddle up by the fire. tomorrow starts another busy week and i hope to take it one day at a time and enjoy all the blessing we have this holiday season. happy holidays :)
