It won't be long before we'll all be there with snow
I want to wash my hands, my face and hair with snow
I long to clear a path and lift a spade of snow
Oh, to see a great big man entirely made of snow
Where it's snowing
All winter through
That's where I want to be
That's what I'll do
How I'm longing to ski
Through the snow-oh-oh-oh-oh
Those glist'ning houses that seem to be built of snow
Oh, to see a mountain covered with a quilt of snow
What is Christmas with no snow
No white Christmas with no snow
I'll soon be there with snow
I'll wash my hair with snow
And with a spade of snow
I'll build a man that's made of snow
I'd love to stay up with you but I recommend a little shuteye
Go to sleep

But finally, yesterday morning, I woke up and said "Today is the day!" And before I got out of my jammies, before I even ate breakfast...I pulled out all the lights and decorations and went to town...
Trusty Trader Joe's Chocolate windows! Our advent is simple and sweet.
Every day Judah enjoys the ritual of getting his little handful of chocolate. And it is adorable. I finally took some pics of it today...here's the play by play...it takes all of 30 seconds each day so the fact that I got 6 pictures out of the deal is pretty good :)
I'm pretty sure we have skipped a day or two...which works out just fine cause we aren't really celebrating christmas until a couple days after anyhow...so it works out in the end.
