I missed our first snow fall which happened 2 weeks ago. I was in Kansas and my hubby called me so excited that it was snowing, on his drive to work. By the time I got back that afternoon, the sun had come out, but the snow was stunning.

We have been working crazily to get the guest bathroom done, stripped wall paper, carpet and repainted and tiled the floor. We also painted the dining, family room and bathrooms. The guest bathroom has been Chris's project, the painting mine.
After many trips to Home Depot and many hours of hard work, we are finally almost done.
We saw one of our winter freezes, and had to spend almost 15 minutes chipping thick ice of my windshield. I could not stop thinking of how nice it would be to park in my new garage.

The move happened last weekend, we had some great moving company help us move in2 hours, but I could not believe how much we had collected in the past 5 months that we had been here. I have told Chris that I will not be moving any time soon again, I've had all the moving I can handle for a while.
The house is looking stunning, and Chris and I are loving our new home.
Our plans for thanksgiving fell through with Don and Carole. So we had a lovely chilled day with Art and Melissa, and Art's 2 little kids, Hanna and Kyle. Melissa and I cooked an all American lunch, with Pumpkin pie, Turkey, stuffing and some other yummy food. The guys fixed a few things here and there, it helps knowing a electrician, Thanks Art!

Friday night Chris and I went out to movies, to watch the new James Bond. I know many people have been disappointed with the Quantum of Solice movie, as it does not have all the usual Bond gadgets, but as far as the story line goes, following on from Casino Royale, it was a good story, great acting, so not all that bad.
When we came out of the movie, the most amazing snow storm had come through and covered everything in white flakes. The snow plow's were out, and I was like a little kid, oohing and aahing. That set the tone for the weekend and it snowed pretty much on and off until tonight. We played out in the snow this afternoon, building our first snowman and throwing snowballs at each other. The temps dipped to below the 20's (approx -6 degree C). Brrr
