It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas!

This past Monday we had Lucas and Bethany Tucker over for dinner! They are another young married couple that helps us out in Northstar's Youth Group, come to think of it, they were our first couple over for dinner :) 

Anyways, after dinner we were just sitting around talking and happened to peek outside and it was POURING down snow!! It was so beautiful! This was the first snow of the 2008-09 Winter Season in Blacksburg and subsequently Cody and I's first downpour of snow since we've been married!! 

Also speaking of marriage, on Friday we will have been married for FIVE MONTHS!! WOW and we haven't killed each other!! Things are going great!! :) haha
Right outside our front door! It was gorgeous outside! And Yes, we do still have our McCain/Palin sign up--I guess we just can't let it go.

My car is covered already!

The next morning we awoke to a snow-covered wonderland!
This is our backyard scene
Our back porch was awesome!

The next morning we had about 6-8 inches!

Snow on Virginia Tech's Campus--this building happens to be where I work :)

*Winter is officially here!! We are so excited! It's been so fun snuggling up on the couch and drinking our hot apple cider and cocoa! 

In future news, tomorrow, after I get off work, Cody and I are leaving for a Youth Leaders Conference in Nashville, Tennessee (our favorite city-woohoo) So, we are so very excited to get out of town and really learn more about Youth Ministry! Then on Sunday afternoon, we are headed to Ohio for Thanksgiving--but not before stopping in Cincinatti to visit our favorite newlyweds, Corey and Cissie!! Starting tomorrow at 5pm--the next 10 days will be fabulous!! Tons of pictures to come!!! 

Love and Blessings,
C&L Davenport

Larae, I love reading your blog - you guys are so cute! I am super jealous of the snow - We won't being seeing that anytime soon (Unless we get lucky and get snow in KY over Christmas). Enjoy it for Jon and I! Also, I LOVE your firepit and outdoor chairs - I want one so bad! :)
