nor'easter izzy

we've lucked out so far this winter that the weather hasn't been too bad.  we have only had a little bit of snow.  however, we've had wicked cold temperatures lately, so it has definitely felt like january.  yesterday morning we woke up and it was -2 degrees outside!  i don't even want to know what the windchill was if the temperature was that low!

today we woke up to the most snow we've had so far this season covered in rain/sleet which made it super dense and heavy.  gross!

okay, summer, i'm ready for you!

love, laurie

koziar's christmas village


between christmas and new year's we took a drive down to koziar's christmas village.  my parents have been talking about visiting this famous light display for years, and this year we finally had the time to join them to check it out!

it was a long drive from home, but it was worth it to see over one million lights decorating the former dairy farm.  we couldn't believe how many hand-made displays there were both outside and inside.  the weather was great that night and we really enjoyed checking it out!

birthday celebrations

on saturday, our parents came up to celebrate my birthday.  it was so nice to keep things super simple this year . . . instead of an elaborate dinner and cake we did hoagies from wegman's and homemade ice cream for a build-your-own sundae bar.  ryan always makes the best ice cream!  it was so nice, relaxing, and stress free!

first real snowfall of the season


we woke up today to the first real snowfall that we've had so far this winter season.  we really lucked out up to this point.  this guy doesn't care though!  so long as he can hang in the sink and get soaking wet, that's what's important to him!  

have a lovely weekend

love, laurie
