happy holidays!

this year we have a little more room than last year- so we were able to get a small Christmas tree.  We decided to get just a small tree, but it has been so nice.  All of my decorations are at my parent's house- which i managed to forget until we brought the tree home.  So, I made a few, and bought a couple of new strings of lights.  The cats love having a tree.  They are always really good and don't try to knock it down or eat the ornaments.  Dot has a special love for the tree and enjoys sitting under it (and also drinking the tree water).  Silly kitty! :)

let it snow...

last week we had a little bit of snow.  i was like a small child sitting at my desk watching the snow come down, and announcing to the rest of the office the size of the snowflakes.  In the city- the snow quickly turned to mush, much to my dissappointment.  I really really hate cold wet feet from walking through inches of slush.  Fortunately, our backyard in Brooklyn did not melt.  On last Saturday morning, we took Dash outside to checkout the snow.  As much as he loves going outside, I think that he was thoroughly confused about the snow.  He also seemed to dislike the feeling of cold, wet feet!  
i also snapped a photo of the snow in city hall park.   The park is closed on the weekend, so all of the snow remained untouched.  So pretty.  :)
