What a weekend this will be! Four of my five siblings are meeting up at my parents' snow-covered house in the Utah mountains this weekend, and we can't wait! I plan on huddling in front of the pellet stove the entire time. :)
I picked a few boxes of our oranges and lemons to bring up. Freshly squeezed orange juice feels like such a treat when the world outside is white and heavy with snow. Elliot was helping me pick and he had a hard time understanding that some places are just too cold for orange trees to grow. It has definitely been cold in Arizona this week, but not Sundance-in-winter cold.
Our nativity advent calendar is moving right along. I get lots of emails about it. You can find a free pattern to download here (thanks to reader Jessica). And here, here and here are some old posts about it, in case you are interested.
In other news, I cut my hair! Man, it feels good.
Have a happy last-weekend-before-Christmas!
