it's begining to look a lot like christmas

We have snow! And lots of it! It's literally been snowing for two days straight. This was the railing last night around 8:00, and it's only gotten higher. Maybe today would be a good day for me to burn some Christmas cookies or something...clearly getting out of the driveway will not be happening!
The other day was Estella's first experience with paint. She's colored with markers, crayons and pencils, just never paint...I've just never had the patience to pull it all out...the other night, I found some patience!
She started off very dainty with the paintbrushes and her fingertips, but eventually got very messy! She had lots of fun and was very impressed with her paintings hanging on the wall for the next couple of days.

Our tree is up and decorated. Estella is completely in awe of the lights and decorations and can't seem to control herself when she gets near it...she just has to touch. Earlier, I caught her trying to balance on her cart to get at some of the higher ornaments. I figure it's only a matter of time before she tries to climb it!
We've gone disco this year! A little disco-Christmas never hurt anyone...
I had to do something to the stairs, and we were all out of lights. We now also have some presents stacked on the stairs as an alternative to under the tree. It's slowly starting to look like Christmas...and just in time!

I'm not sure what our plans are for Christmas, but if it keeps snowing like this, we'll be stuck in the house, in which case I'll probably post again before Christmas. Just in case I don't,
