Today is the first Sunday in December. My family's traditional day to go and get a tree for our Christmas. What a nice surprise for us this morning that it finally snowed a little. I love the season's first real snow, the town looks so glorious with a powder sugar dusting of snow. Maybe it will turn to rain later on like the weatherman says, but for now we are putting up our tree while a gentle snow falls, and its beginning to feel like Christmas.
