We live in Texas and it doesn't often feel like winter during winter here.

It can drive a girl mad.
Lately, though, we are getting some consistently cold-ish temperatures, complete with a little snow(!) and grey, overcast skies. And with the beautiful orange and red leaves of the Red Oaks, we feel like winter is upon us...
