Christmas came to Court ST.

Hello! Another victory for our curling team. Our skip came second in the bonspiel this weekend, and he was playing awesomely last night, it was so cool. Plus Jai and I made one or two shots of our own, and even had rocks that scored points. Jai said he couldn't get to sleep last night, he was so excited by "our scinitillating triumph" (direct quote.)
Today Jai finished getting the last of the plaster out of the pantry while I had a job interview with the library. Then we had Christmas. We went to the Christmas tree place about two blocks from our house, and I think Nova Scotia just grows better Christmas trees. Maybe it's all the snow. All the trees in the lot were great, and they were all the same great price. We walked away with a gorgeous nine foot tall tree for $18. We've gotten two Christmas packages in the last two days - one from Grandma and Grandpa, and one from Aunty Gen - thanks guys. Still only one card on our imaginary mantel, though. I hear rumours of my cards arriving in their expected places, so I'm hoping we'll get more soon (hint hint!) Check out our tree, it's the best one ever:


That's Jai with his hearty cup of nog. Skoal, everybody!

Hey! Yes, we win! Jai is telling everyone we moved to Nova Scotia because we had special intelligence that the weather was going to switch coasts. But we know the gloating will be short lived! Love Lauren

Hey guys, it's so nice being able to see what you've been up to... what a great way to stay in touch with everyone. You certainly have your work cut, the house will be amazing when you are done.... Love the photos too. How are you enjoying the snow?

Hello Esperanza! Thanks so much for your message! I'm so glad you guys are checking out our blog! We're absolutely loving having our own house, it's so much fun to work on it - even the jobs that aren't fun at all! Nova Scotia is really great, too. So far we haven't had any snow that lasts for more than a day or two - we're actually having better weather than you guys - SO FAR!!! Bye for now! ~Lauren
