Driving in winter here is a different story. It's my kind of driving - no rules and no lines. There's always ice, snow or mush on the roads so you can't see the lines. I like being able to forge my own path. Parking is great too because there is no worrying about parking inside the lines. Not that it's ever a problem for me ;)
We've been really busy since returning from our Thanksgiving trip to the lower 48 so tonight was the first chance we had to get a tree.

The second lot was so much better. The trees were housed inside greenhouses. There were no frozen branches and we were warm as we looked though the huge selection. The trees were hanging by the tops on metal railings which was really helpful in picking the perfect one.
It's funny how the smallest things make the biggest difference. The moment Nathanial carried in the tree our house started to have the warmth and joy the Christmas season should.

Tonight I decided to start a new tradition with Nathanial and have a fun meal before getting the tree. Our holiday fiesta with homemade salsa and Chuy's inspired jalapeno sauce was a great start to the evening.
We capped off the evening with a cheesy Hallmark Christmas movie and a double instrument serenade. Not too many people have husbands that play both the trumpet and the harmonica.
