Look what I woke up to this morning! It's been snowing off and on all day now and we have about 4 inches dusting everything. People are out making snowmen and throwing snowballs. I even saw a few kids sleding down the slopes near the highway. As much we may be impressed the wildlife on the other hand seems to be.....

a bit put out by this sudden storm.

This little guy was covered in snow when I first caught a glimpse of him sitting on a neighbor's fence. He came down to check me out leaving most of the snow behind. He still has a bit on his nose though. Too cute!

Anyway, Happy January 28th (aka Amazing Snow Day)!

I've just discovered a great web based charity. It's called Eco-Libris. For every dollar donated they plant 1 tree to replace the paper your favorite novels are made from. In exchange they send you a recycled sticker for each book you "balance out" to show your support for a great cause.
Check out Eco-Libris!

5 Whole Years!!

(really awful pictures of us from Year 4)

Yes, I know it's hard to believe but Scott and I have made it to our 5 year anniversary! I often wonder what it is that keeps us together? Why do we get along so well? I think you might be able to tell why just by looking at the pictures above. Even at our worst we still like each other best.

January 16, 2008- 5th anniversary (We’re both too sick to go out so our fancy dinner is going to have to wait a week. However, Scott was a very good boyfriend and took me out this last weekend to buy me a new fancy dress to wear to our fancy dinner. It only took him 5 years to figure out what makes me really happy…shopping and good food.) :)
