Snow Day

Beer Box Sleddin'

Cookie Sheet Sleddin'


We got a wonderful amount of snow (about 7") here in Raleigh. Snow is rare in these parts, so it causes a bit of a slow down in the day-to-day functioning of the city. Daycare was closed (although I have been quoted saying daycare would "close down if a kid dirtied a diaper"---so that alone is not an indicator as to how the Triangle was affected). We have a fabulous

Joe's work was closed down on Tuesday. I work in a hospital. I drove, it took me a few extra minutes to get there but the roads were not horrible ( I have seen worse, doesn't mean I would want to drive on worse). Fortunately, the roads were also without most traffic, which made the drive on the bad roads much better.

After arrival at work I called Joe to see how the snow day was progressing. They were dressing to go outside according to daddy. (Read this as Jackets were being worn over jammies in order to get outside as fast as possible).

Please enjoy some pix of father helping son sled on the front yard!! Joseph had a BLAST!!

Christmas Morning

Sorry that this update is so delayed! A few people have mentioned that they have checked the blog a few times and noticed that I had not updated it. I apologize, the holidays have made me lazy. Please enjoy a few shots of the little guy on Christmas morning, it was a fun time for all of us!

He really got into opening presents, ripping off the wrapping paper and seeing what was inside.

Joseph even enjoyed the shoes that I got for Christmas! He loves clunking around in heels on the hardwood floors.

I think his favorite thing all morning was his new kitchen and the million and one piece food set:

Hope everyone had a very merry Christmas and that 2009 started off as a great New Year!! I can't believe that it's 2009!
