January Snow Day!

We had our first real snow day this season!

We started the day wearing our PJs and slippers. We made waffles and ate until we were full full!

Aidan kept an eye on the snowfall to let us know we could play in it whenever we were ready!

We made snow ice cream again this year. Last year we got a recipe that had raw eggs in it which I thought was weird and wrong on several levels. This was much better!

We finally made it outside! I was so glad we waited until the afternoon when the wind had died down and the sun was out! The boys had a blast and we lasted awhile until our fingers got too cold!

Jake is really the reason why these boys had so much fun outside. If it were up to me, we would stand around and try to figure out a way to stay warm! He had a plan involving sleds, snowballs, and running around! What a super daddy!

Domino was the best behaved dog ever today. She loves loves this weather!

And now I just heard that we get to do it all over again tomorrow! They have already announced another snow day!

500 miles!

I committed to running 500 miles in 2011. I think that will be so cool to be able to say! I ran 5 today but, unfortunately the 500 ticker doesn't start until tomorrow!
