the snow has finally arrived

Maryland has finally received some snow...which I'm sure means the entire east coast will be shutting down for the day. LOL! And with the snow comes Mike and Kirsten turning our furnace on for the first time this winter. We made it to December 5th with no furnace which I'd say is pretty good. Here is a picture of Stuart "enjoying" the snow. (well for 5 minutes anyway) :)


This last Thursday, Mike was able to get me a ticket to the National Christmas Tree Lighting in the Ellipse by the White House. I had a great seat and was able to snap many pictures and record a few videos. Let's see...who was all there? President Obama + family, Vice President Joe Biden + family, Sheryl Crow, Randy Jackson, Jordin Sparks, Mr. and Mrs. Santa Claus...and many more. It was a great time and the weather was pretty good for it also. It was a bit breezy but could have been worse probably. Here are some photos and a video(sorry for the videography!)

Obama saying goodbye.
The countdown!

I'm really jealous of your snow. Sure hope we get some this month--it's always a huge disappointment to have a a brown and dead Christmas. ;o) The tree lighting is beautiful--what a fun event to attend! Oh, and I like your bloggie backqround. ;o)
