Snow Day and Thanksgiving Recap

It’s a snow day!  Even though we live in a state that regularly gets freezing weather, snow and ice you would think the school district officials are from Hawaii.  They call a snow day even before any sort of precipitation has fallen from the sky.  Oh well, I don’t mind the occasional snow day.  It gives us all a chance to be reallllllly lazy and watch Elf.  “I love smiling.  Smiling’s my favorite”.  That movie never gets old.

I have another awesome Justin Roberts song for you.  The perfect snow day song.

I made the boys wait until 10:00 to go outside to play.  Mamma needs coffee before I can bundle them up Christmas Story style.

About 30 seconds after this was taken Harry can running crying.  Addison positioned him right under the roof and scrapped a bunch of snow on him that rent down his coat.  Nothin’ worse than snow down the back of your neck.

Oooooo the Amaro filter makes everything look even colder than it already is.  Believe it or not Conan is really happy with the snow.  By the way, I have found Conan’s voice. You can follow him via my Instagram using #conanthedog

Now for the Thanksgiving recap.

We went to visit my parents.  My mom made the turkey, cranberry sauce and dressing.  Regular and oyster.  I made the potatoes, pumpkin pie and brussels sprouts.  Side note regarding brussels sprouts.  Fry some bacon then saute the sprouts in the bacon grease.  De-lish.

    My kids always want to get out in the snow as soon as they get up. They change their tune in Jan/Feb when the temperatures are sub-zero. 🙂 Funny that you already had a snow day. I live in Maine and it’s only snowed a couple of times so far.

    Sounds like a great Thanksgiving. I love Brussels sprouts with bacon! (Well, anything with bacon really)
