It's the beginning of the Christmas Season

The festivities around here began on Friday, with the annual Santa Claus parade. Fun, as always!
On Sunday we headed out to cut down our Christmas tree. One problem though, the road was a sheet of thick ice that our car could could not navigate. So we ended up hiking in several kilometres to get our tree and then dragged it back those km's to the car.
But the forest and the views were so lovely.

Kesten was pretty excited that we brought we tree inside! And then we decorated it!

And right after we got the tree, a cold front blew in and the temperature went from 2 above to -15c in the span of a couple hours. Brrr. Time to dress warmly!

 Despite the howling wind and freezing temperatures, the tree makes us feel cozy and warm inside.


I love this time of year. I have been making a few Christmas presents that I will have to share with you later!
