Happy New Year!!!

I typically don't like really hyped up days...they are always a letdown. A few years ago, we started going to my in-laws cottage for New Years' Eve, mainly because we didn't want to take the risk of going out and getting arrested somewhere, and also because I am too cheap to spend a ton of money on one night. Every year, we sort of go back-and-forth over what we are going to do, and every year we wind up at the lake. This year, we have been blessed with "real snow".

Real Snow is the kind that piles up and you can go out and play in. It's the kind where you can build snow forts, and go snowmobiling, and have snowball fights with your Golden Retriever. (guess who wins??) It started snowing on our drive up last night, and hasn't really stopped since. I love Real Snow. Especially here.

Since it is cold outside, and there is Real Snow, we have a fire in the fireplace. And since my Purdue Boilermakers were on ESPN playing against #6 West Virginia, Workaholic snuggled up with Sam, and this is her, watching her future alma mater kick the you-know-what out of the Mountaineers...


Fonz also loves real snow...

And when it gets too cold, he comes in and warms up with the Blue Blanket. We all love our lazy days...
