Snow Day!

Sunday, January 23, 2011
We got a couple of inches of snow the other day so the schools shut down.  The entire Navy base was closed too except for essential personnel.  In other words, we had a SNOW DAY!  Woo hoo!

Jake saw plenty of snow when we were in Newport, Rhode Island but he was just a baby.  This was really the first time he was able to play in the snow.  He had as much fun as a Republican during the November elections.

This gives you an idea of the amount of snow we got.  I'd say it was about 4-5 inches, which everyone knows is huge.

 Since we have a decent incline on our driveway, our place was a popular with the neighborhood kids and their sleds.

Later in the day, we went over to this sledding hill.  It was a popular place, especially after people found out that a man broke his leg last year while sledding down this hill.

CJ picked up some decent speed going down that slope.  It was a very successful outing - no broken legs and lots of laughs.

We returned home from sledding to find this cute little guy on our porch.

Flannigan and the neighborhood dogs enjoyed the snow as well.  Seeing them run to their hearts' content put a big smile on my face.

After a couple hours of being outside, we went back in for some hot chocolate and some chill out time. This seems like a simple picture of the family playing a board game but there are some things I feel obliged to point out.  Jake got way too overzealous with his nose-picking - I'm talking two knuckles deep - and caused a self-inflicted nosebleed.  Check out the bloody napkin he's holding.  Meanwhile, CJ kept straddling the "Sorry" board game with his crotch even after we repeatedly told him to back up his genitals.  It seemed like we were reaching for CJ's junk every time we had to move our board pieces through his corner of the board.

If you look closely, I'm losing badly in this game.  I have the blue pieces and I'm nowhere near getting any of my pieces to the final home spot.  I decide to be funny and sneak all four of my pieces to the home spot to see if anyone notices.  Well, CJ and Jake definitely notice and think that I'm cheating - which I wasn't.  I was just trying to be funny.  Honestly.

My little trick caused quite the reaction from the boys.  They demanded that I lose a turn.  Needless to say, I did not win the game.  The snow day was a win for all of us though.  Very fun hanging with the family.
