Snow Day Par-Tay!!!!

It snowed!  Really, I'm not kidding......we finally have snow! And. lots. of. it.  We measured in at 6.5 inches here and it's really beautiful.  Dennis made oatmeal this morning...just seemed like a snow day kind of breakfast, and it was delicious!  Then we watched a movie, but we were restless and really just wanted to get out of the house and see "the town".

Shugs wasn't too sure if she wanted to go out or not....

At first, she just wanted to watch....then she decided to just go out on the porch...
Then she figured that it couldn't be all that bad if Daddy was out in it....
That lasted less than a minute.....
Later we looked out the front door and guess who we saw?  The mailman!!!!  So, it is true...."neither rain, nor snow, nor sleet, nor hail".....
Well, Dennis figured if the mailman could deliver the mail, we could go for a little drive....AND he wanted oysters!!!  What??  There's a fridge full of food (well, everything EXCEPT oysters) and you want oysters?  So, off we went.....
...to Farm Fresh!  I was pretty sure I'd seen fresh oysters there the day before.
There were a few cars in the parking lot, but not so many people inside.....

We found the oysters, a lemon and beer, then decided to take them over to the "other Dennis's" house.....Dennis West.

....we called, got an okay.....grabbed our oysters and beer....
....and off we went!  Once we drove up, it was pretty apparent that we weren't the only ones who had this thought!
It was quite a lively group and we really had a great time!  We cooked/ate/enjoyed the oysters....
....watched basketball and some golf.....
......the guys played darts......
...while the ladies did what they do best....chat!!!....
Stevie West made a beer run!!!
There was great music by DJ Dennis.....and a bit of dancing!!!
And one of the neighbors pulled kids up and down the street behind his John Deere tractor....looked like sooo much fun!
It was just a great day spent with great people......
....and a good time was had by all!!!  See you guys soon!  Maybe tomorrow!  Hmmmm.....how about pizza....from scratch!
