We were hit by the huge snowstorm! We have power, and heat, and water, so really it's just a matter of waiting around until the roads are driveable (which, this is Virginia Beach... we aren't great at snowplowing and road salting so it'll be a few more days, since it isn't warm enough to melt anything yet).



We got a whole Baranof of snow:

And of course, when you come back inside, you need a hot chocolate with a whole bunch of marshmallows and a huge pile of library books:

Happy new year!!!

We always make fondue and invite a ton of people over, but about 90% of the people we usually invite have newborns this year, so we only had one guest. Luckily, he's the same person we're planning on playing D&D with coming up soon, so we used the time to start building our characters (#newyearnewyou !)



Baranof says cheers to a new year!



And of course, his IG: www.instagram.com/lvbaranof

Awesome, Anana saw orcas!!! The coolest thing I've ever seen in the ocean here is the occasional distant dolphin.

Happy holidays everyone!


We made mulled wine, which smells very Christmassy.


Since it's hard to get everyone together twice in one month, we had our Hanukkah dinner (LATKES!!!) on Christmas Day. (We are very efficient.)


We don't normally play, but this year I brought dreidels and gelt! Here, Baranof got nun, which means he doesn't get any gelt (but he also doesn't have to put any in, either... which is good, because look at how low our pile is getting!).


We also went to play Top Golf on Boxing Day with my MIL, SIL, and her boyfriend.

A few more on Baranof's IG: www.instagram.com/lvbaranof

So we've had a lot of fun! Time to clean up post-holiday and prepare for the new year!

We went BACK to Busch Gardens, this time for Christmas Town! They cover the most beautiful theme park in America with 8 billion bulbs, and every "country" (area of the park) has a different Christmas-y theme (France is the 12 days of Christmas in silver/pink/blue, Ireland has a pinecones/green garland and white lights and candles theme, etc.) It's gorgeous and lovely and everything smells like pine and there are way more photos on Baranof's IG: www.instagram.com/lvbaranof/

We went to the Green Flash brewery with Baranof today, and...


...enjoyed a beer by the outdoor glass fire pit (it's about 45F out, so we sat on the side where the wind would blow the warm air at us!), and...


...bought some very fancy local chocolates from the Christmas market, along with a little gift shopping.

Not terribly exciting, but we will be going on a real adventure tomorrow... back to somewhere we've been before, but it will look very different!!!

It's NaNoWriMo! Which means Baranof has spent a good deal of time watching me write. (Not as much as I'd like... as you can see on the graph, our word count is considerably lower than the goal line!)



Don't worry... we have some actual adventures coming up soon. In the meantime... back to writing!  Grin

Election Day! Baranof came with me to the polling place and witnessed democracy in action:

What beautiful snow for Anana to see!!! According to local friends' Facebook memories, it snowed here in Virginia Beach two years ago today... but this year, it was in the mid-60s all day!

Baranof and I spent some time today taking care of the kitties at the adoption center:



And waterbaby, have I ever mentioned how cool I think it is to see photos from your work? So awesome!

Happy Halloween! Perhaps the more obvious costume for Baranof would have been a Gryffindor, since he came with the appropriate scarf, but since I'm Tony Stark today, he gets to be Captain America:



(Poised and ready to fight the forces of evil!)

Baranof got to go to Howl-O-Scream at Busch Gardens (Williamsburg) with us on Friday!


Classic photo op in the light of day...


...and then things start to get spooky after dark!

I wasn't NEARLY brave enough to hold him on a roller coaster to get him in a ride photo... don't want to break the rules, what with him being considerably smaller than the required height for all the rides!

There are quite a few more photos on his Instagram though, www.instagram.com/lvbaranof ! (Including the somewhat less fun and exciting follow-up to Busch Gardens, Baranof helping me getting a flu shot.)
