Santas carry a tree, loaded with decorations. You can see those staples here pretty clearly.
And today we woke up to this.
Mid-morning I ventured out to the grocery store and took a few pictures on my way to the car.
It has been snowing steadily all day. There is a lot more snow out there right now and it's still coming down. This kind of storm is so unusual here, but if you don't have to be anywhere and you aren't worrying about someone who is traveling, it is peaceful and beautiful. (I may change my tune if it goes on for days—) Emily and Cayo's family from Ecuador arrived last night ahead of the storm and Emily had a big dinner today. I'm so glad we now live so close to them. It really was a lovely day in so many ways.
