Snow here! Our backyard has snow all over! The car doors got stuck shut because of ice! It's so exciting! Of course, it will all be gone tomorrow. But it was fun while it lasted!

(Sorry no pictures, Josh left the camera at school.)


Winter Weather is here! Last night the temperature dropped and this morning we have ice! Dallas/Fort Worth area is under a severe weather warning all day today. When we woke up the temp was about 31 degrees and will be dropping during the day. Most of the private schools are closed today, along with the community colleges and UT Arlington. There was no announcement for Southwestern. However, the weather channel said not to drive unless it is an emergency and class does not count as an emergency. So it looks like I will be spending the day at home in my sweatpants! Funny how just last night I was complaining about how I don't have enough time to get done everything I want to do....

Hope everyone is doing well. The semester is wrapping up and we are trying to keep up. Today I actually had a couple of assignments due that I stayed up late working on. Grr. Oh well, they are finished. The last day of classes for me should be Dec 5th, unless they add another day for bad weather. I think Josh's classes end that week too. Joshua doesn't have any final exams, just two final projects. I have three finals on Dec 12th and 13th.

Have a great day and bundle up!

Movin' on up!

The new news is....
We have a new place to live! For those of you who have had the chance to visit us in our dear little duplex, you know that although our house is great, the neighborhood isn't so much. But, never fear! We will shortly have a new address!
We have found a townhome in a great block of townhomes and will be moving in next month. It is a two-story place with about 15oo square feet of possibilities! We are so excited! It really makes it tough to sit down and study for finals and write research papers when all I want to do is plan and pack and dream about decorations and arranging furniture.

Anyways, we will email out the new address when we move in. And then you should plan a visit to come see the new place!

much love,
Joshua and Sarah

Another Dallas Weekend

Last weekend we went to the architecture convention in Dallas with Jack and JoAnn and their dog Gracie. Before the convention Gracie came over to play with Sammy. They had so much fun running around our backyard and playing tug-a-war.

Sammy has been waiting for a friend to come play in his backyard!

Then on Friday we headed over to Dallas. Since we had the dogs, we stayed a little ways away from the Convention center in a hotel that allowed dogs. Joshua and Jack went to their lectures and classes and JoAnn and I hung out at the hotel and walked the dogs. On Friday night we had dinner in the West End with some people from Jack's firm. We got to ride the train, the Dart, into town. It reminded us of being in Europe again.
Saturday the guys went back to lectures and we met them for lunch. Then Jack went back for one more class and Joshua, JoAnn, the dogs, and I walked around town looking at monuments and sculptures.
Water Crossing! Everyone over! No complaining!

We got caught in the stampede outside the convention center, but don't worry, we are all fine now.

Thanks for a fun weekend, Jack, JoAnn, and Gracie! Come back and visit us again soon!
