Winter Wonderland

The whole East coast was blanketed by a snowstorm this weekend, and Norwalk, CT was not spared getting more than a foot of snow.  As I was shoveling the driveway and digging out the cars from under the snow, I was reminded of how much I love summer.  But after I was done, the whole family went out and enjoyed some sledding for the afternoon which was loads of fun – except for Nathaniel, that is.  On the first ride down, I rode with Nathaniel on my lap, and at the bottom of the hill, he was crying and did not want to ride anymore!  Unfortunately, this meant that Julianne and I had to take turns sledding and watching Nathaniel.  After a couple hours, we were finally too tired and too cold to ride anymore and headed home for some hot chocolate.  OK, so maybe a couple hours of snow is reasonable. :)
Check out these photos and videos from the snowstorm of 2009.

Merry Christmas!

 2009 Christmas Card
As the Northeast is blanketed in an early winter snowstorm, we’d like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.  For the first time in a long time (maybe since I was a kid), I’ve never felt so excited for the Christmas season.  We have the tree up, the house is decorated, and right on schedule, we’ll be getting a few inches of snow to top it all off.  Last year at this time, Julianne and I had been splitting our time at the hospital with Isabella for weeks and we didn’t even have the tree up yet or have time to go shopping.  I urge you all to not only be festive and joyous during the holiday season, but to carry that with you all year, because you never know what the future brings.

Here are a couple pictures and videos from our holiday season so far.  Enjoy!
