New Year’s at the Lake

We spent a great week at the lake between Christmas and New Year’s….relaxing in front of the fire, reading, eating, sleeping – all the good stuff 🙂

My Brother Jon spent the first two nights with us. The house is under construction so the insulation works even less than it usually does. On this particularly morning we woke up and the house (more specifically the living room where Jon slept) was 44 degrees….a wee bit chilly 🙂 Luckily he had doggies to warm him up!

The snow was so beautiful and fresh!

Bad dog!

Our friends came on New Year’s eve just in time for a twilight walk

We got on a puzzle kick 🙂

The annual Tunxis Black Bear Plunge went off without a hitch on New Year’s Day – it was a balmy 28 degrees with no wind!

People sport lovely outfits 🙂

We had a crowd this year which was great but no one but the regulars (all members or friends of our household!) could be persuaded to join the fun

PLUNGE!

Little Teddy is not so little anymore – he’s walking!

Happy campers!

Our puppy knocked him over – bad puppy!

Man with dog 🙂

Giles likes to sleep with the dogs!

I’m heading up to the lake now for a girl’s crafting weekend – I can’t wait!
